Midnite Madness LXI - Fight Back VI—Make Noise Not War

I didn't forget about you, just been busy. But here, finally, is last week's show for your listening and downloading. Thanks again to James Knight of Blue Tapes who came in and played a 40-minute UKHC set which, in many ways, was the perfect accompaniment to this documentary he had a large hand in making.
I just tried to play some different and newer stuff to the past five Fight Backs—no Discharge this time (!). I will be back with more MIDNITE MADNESS on August 18th, so check back for that (probably the classic demo show).

Midnite Madness LX - HMM VI—On the Run

The return of Heavy Metal Mania sees me take in the best of the series in this pretty much uninterrupted two-hour mix. Like mentioned in the show, this special was inspired by a mixtape I made for the road late last summer. I tried to do a World Cup show but only had 19 of the 32 participating countries so thought 'FUCK IT, let's go with the HMM mix instead', and here it is.
I will return with more Midnite Madness on July 22nd, so make sure you tune in for that one.

Midnite Madness LIX - BANZAI!

Unfortunately due to conflicting schedules, Maniac Monday is no more. However, it has been renamed as Midnite Madness (same initials, just another stupid title) and now airs once a month at witching hour. So no more 9-11GMT shows every two weeks unfortunately, but one a month regardless for the same 120 minutes as always. Here are the remaining shows for the year:
-June 24th
-July 22nd
-August 19th
-September 16th
-October 14th
-November 11th
-December 9th
Which will take me up to 66 shows in total. These air at midnite UK time, alright? ALRIGHT.
Onto the most recent effort then, a Banzai Records show. Again, this is not the best tracks released on the legendary Banzai imprint, but perhaps my favourite records and tracks I hadn't played off them already over the last 58 shows. It came out pretty good so go download and play it fucking LOUD on the train or mow the lawn to it. Hails to all the 80s gods who appeared on this epic two-hour journey through 80s metal, without you I might not be here, ughhh...

Maniac Monday LVIII - Demo Entrails IV—2000AD

A one-hour show for you, dear maniacs, which was due to some takeover on NTS. No biggie, it gave me the chance to play some stuff that just would've gotten lost in a two-hour show. It was tough deciding on which show to represent for an hour only, and I almost did an all-Metallica one, a 1994 show and some others, but decided on this instead.
But, this is not the last of Demo Entrails. There will be one collecting all my favourite demos soon, which is why I left out 2000s demo titans like Deathhammer, Antichrist, Bastard Priest etc. from this edition.
Anyways, I am all set now for monthly shows from here on in, with the next being on May 26th, the following June 23rd to my knowledge, so be ready!

Maniac Monday LVII - Epicvs Metallicvs IV

Finally, show 57, another Epicvs Metallicvs. Yes, as mentioned in the show, this is a lazy effort, as it really is the castaways-ish from three shows back. But as I also said, this is due to total radio burnout after 57 shows, all but one being a two-hour show. It is just getting tougher to come up with something different now with the way the show is structured etc, and after this month I will only be doing one a month, probably until the year's end and then SILENCIO.
Sorry if this is a bummer to anyone, but it's time. The next show on May 12th will only be one hour long and it commences at 2200GMT, so bear that in mind as something else will be playing during my usual first hour. If anyone wants a download link, just ask.

Maniac Monday LVI - Fight Back V—Culture Degeneration

Maniac Monday's Fight Back show returns with its fifth instalment, this time featuring two guests, Deano Jo and Jake Gill, guitarist in Shallow Sanction. Thanks to those guys for coming down and tearing the studio a welcome 'new one', we had a blast in there. The delay in posting had mainly been due to the long playlist, of which I think is now correct. Let me know if you spot anything awry.

Maniac Monday LV - Epicvs Metallicvs III

That's right, the temple of truth that is Maniac Monday returns with a third instalment in the Epicvs Metallicvs series. I had to open with a track off the new Teitanblood such is its ferocity, and it promptly set the tone for what is surely one of the heaviest shows in a while, albeit with a few lighter moments, hehe.
Thanks again to all who listened in live, and to all the bands I featured for making these great, epic tracks. I will return on April 14th, 2014, with maybe something a little less gargantuan. Maybe...
