SLEW 16 - Sweet Sixteen

The Show /// The Pics

Sixteen songs (plus one bonus to play us out) for our 16th Slewcast seemed appropriate. All songs except for one are new to me. Most will be new to everyone, with these records all coming in too Slew HQ over the past couple of months. Some bands, like Sharp Objects, we’ve played before while others have we have never been played before. Plus one song off the completely rad reissue of the VOM single (progenitors of Angry Samoans) that couldn’t be left out even if we had 25 songs for this episode.
