We’re at the mercy of modern technology for this episode of the Thrash Hits Podcast – Raz has decamped to the USA for a few weeks for SXSW and some California sunshine, leaving the rest of us here in miserable old England. With possibly the dodgiest Skype connection imaginable, Hugh and Raz discuss how SXSW has changed over the years, as well as speculating on how two very different kinds of hype affect bands – that currently being felt by Ghost (or Ghost BC, if you’re an American) and the kind that surrounds Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.
Oh, and we do some more dody word-association nonsense with festival announcements. Because what’s the point of a good idea unless you can run it into the ground?
So yeah, give us your feedback – either via email, by posting a comment down below, or by dropping a comment at us over Facebook or Twitter. And if you were interested by the discussion in this week’s episode, go and subscribe to our podcast over on iTunes.
