About 18 months ago we posted about Valient Himself’s Rocknowledgy – the quite frankly brilliant music podcast from the Valient Thorr frontman. Rocknowledgy is a (now) monthly show where Valient Himself takes a John Peel-esque approach to music, playing music from across the spectrum – you’re as likely to hear old soul jams on an episode as you are hardcore punk. We bloody love it – and that’s why we’re sponsoring Rocknowledgy for the next 12 months.

Vintage (live) Video: The Dismemberment Plan – The Ice Of Boston

December 31st, 2012

The Dismemberment Plan live Thrash Hits

It’s the last day of the year, and as far as 2012 is concerned, we are done and dusted. And unless you’re a moron of truly terminal proportions, you’ll also be aware that it’s New Year’s Eve today.

And it also turns out that’s he’s a dab hand when it comes of wielding a pen and paintbrush.

Thrash Hits verdict: Wretched are not a new band. They’ve been around for years in fact. We’re not going to pretend we’re so-far-ahead-of-the-curve that we were fans of the band since Day 1, but what we do know is that when we stuck their new record, Son of Perditio, into our stereo the other day, we liked what we heard. We liked it a lot. And what’s the point of having a Future Hits column if we;re not going to use it to tell people about bands we’ve just heard of? We fired an email off to the band’s vocalist, Adam Cody, asking him to tell us why we shouldn’t just restrict our Future Hits columns to the young ‘uns.
