“Ig’s Got a New Roomie,” Episode 12 Nicki, attempting to adjust to her old life on Earth, is thrown for a loop when Gneeecey unexpectedly barges into her basement apartment in the middle of the night. She hears loud banging on her door, which seems to open all by itself—and there he is. Since returning to her own world, Nicki has been dealing with …
 
It’s back to the land of the fetid novelty cash grab, as Broken Records takes on the two biggest franchises of all time; Star Wars and Christmas! What genius would have thought to put these two goliaths together? None other than producer Meco Monardo, a Star Wars superfan, who had previously recorded Star Wars and Other Galactic funk, a dubious 197…
 
“Sports in Outer Space (A Little Celestial Cross-Training),” Episode 11 An exhausted, overworked and demoralized Nicki Rodriguez finds herself sailing through space atop a diaphanous oval spinning golf course. A gleeful Gneeecey, golf bag slung over his shoulder, skips down the celestial fairway, mocking the planets in Earth’s solar system. He is i…
 
Another week, another Broken Record to rank as we search for the worst album in the history of music. In this episode Steve and Remfry discuss Baptism, the 7th studio album from the big scarf-wearing, hard funk, singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz, released on the 18th of May 2004. By 2004 Lenny was a massive rock star! He’d picked up Grammy’s four yea…
 
Welcome to Episode# 084 for October 11th, 2021! This week we start off in a hurry with 'Red's Rapid Report' before getting to the main event, 'Fox Noises': Our Interview with Co Creator of Convergence LARP and Co Writer of the Valborugh webcomic, Chad Schaffer! We dive into what makes Chad tick; his passions and interests in being a writer and game…
 
“Airplanes in His Pants…And Other Embarrassing Moments,” Episode 10 Stranded earthling Nicki Rodriguez recalls embarrassing moments in zany alien canine-humanoid Gneeecey’s life, including when she finds him running in circles shrieking, “Airplanes in my pants!” He claims that the propellers are slashing up his underpants. Nicki becomes concerned f…
 
Welcome to what surely has to be the most exhausting, exhaustive, confusing, extensive and ultimately, unsatisfying Broken Records that you’ll ever listen to. In their search for the worst album ever made, Steve and Remfry run the rule over Chinese Democracy, the sixth studio album from hard rock megastars Guns N’ Roses, released, FINALLY released,…
 
“Catchin’ Up Wit’ My Tail," Episode 9 GAS Broadcast Network’s micro-managing owner (also a doctor and Perswayssick County’s director), Diroctor Gneeecey, interviews Nicki Rodriguez’s alter ego, author Vicki Solá on his weekly WGAS-TV public affairs program, “Catchin’ Up Wit’ My Tail.” Solá has authored two comedic Sci-Fi fantasies, You Can’t Unscra…
 
On this week’s Broken Records the boys are divided, as we look at ¡Tré!, the 11th studio album from pop-punk megastars Green Day, released on the 7th of December 2012. On one hand Remfry is a self-confessed fan of the band, enjoying their jaunty, pop punk, stadium rock hits like a happy little fella and then on the other hand we have Steve, miserab…

“There’s Always a Way…Sometimes,” Episode 8 Nicki and Gneeecey have inadvertently traveled to Planet HyenaZitania, ruled by Gneeecey’s evil, more sophisticated double, Ebegneeezer Gesundheit Eeeceygnay. The two find themselves imprisoned in a cold cell in a medieval stone tower. Chanting zombies mill about in the courtyard below, chomping greedily …
 
It’s unclear quite what Remfry or Steve have done to deserve this but for the second week in a row, we are forced to listen to an album fronted by a fictional character with absolutely no musical talent what-so-ever (sorry Blobby). At least last week, Remfry could claim some sort of defence in that Mr. Blobby was ostensibly aimed at children but Cr…
 
“Purple Daze,” Episode 7 Nicki struggles to cash her first actual WGAS Network paycheck. Prior to this day, her earnings were so small, that Gneeecey paid her literally from out of his T-shirt pocket every two weeks, flinging a few singles and coins in her face. Today, she’s caught up with some of the “debts” he said she’d owed him, and he announce…
 
Blob blobby blobby blob blob!... or welcome to another week in our search for the worst album ever made. This week it all gets a little odd as Steve and Remfry are forced to take a trip back to the death rattle of British light entertainment and dissect the debut (and weirdly only) album from 90’s pop culture sensation Mr. Blobby, released during s…
 
“Championship Football Game (First Down on Nicki’s Face),” Episode 6 Licensed therapist Ingabore Scriblig, AKA, “Grandma,” phones Nicki to ask her to make sure Gneeecey arrives at his session on time later that afternoon. This particular morning that Nicki recalls, she feels a bit queasy as she and Gneeecey travel to work at his GAS Broadcast Netwo…
 
Steve and Remfry take a trip down memory lane this week and review an album that one of our hosts has already reviewed at the time of its release in the form of post-grunge no marks Puddle of Mudd's covers album, the confusingly titled, Re:(disc)overed, released on the 29th of August 2011. It’s an album that could very much have flown under the rad…
 
“Shopping at Home with GAS,” Episode 5 Gneeecey and Nicki arrive late to his GAS Broadcast Network—again. As usual, it’s his fault. As usual, he blames her. The “Shopping at Home with GAS” home shopping show airs on GAS-TV after lunch. Brown-nosing donkey-humanoid intern Stuart Pitt scurries about multitasking. An office shredder hangs from his nec…
 
We’re a little late this week, apologies for that, but, hey, who can blame us, we’re having to dive back into one of our least favourite scenes in musical history; the indie landfill boom of the mid-00’s. This week we look at the fourth album from Leeds based indie nothing-men The Pigeon Detectives, released on the 29th of April 2013. You might fee…
 
“Wampum Physics,” Episode 4 An exhausted, overworked Nicki can’t sleep. Across the hall, Gneeecey and his canine-humanoid buddy Sooperflea are rehearsing for a big concert. Gneeecey’s violin shatters glass and teeth, and Sooperflea is tone-deaf and rhythmically challenged. The “music” stops abruptly when Gneeecey screams that Mister Tree outside is…
 
Broken Records is often a painful experience, but it’s made all the more painful when we’re discussing a band as essential and admired as The Clash. Unfortunately, their sixth and final studio album, released on 4 November 1985 by CBS Records, is a record that is truly worthy of the prefix ‘broken’. Lead guitarist and co-principal songwriter Mick J…
 
“Welcome to My Humble Abdomen,” Episode 3 Dimension burn shrinks Nicki to the size of a matchstick. She’s living in his debris-filled T-shirt pocket. Things go from bad to worse this morning. Gneeecey hightails it to his Electronic Water Cyclone 3000, a high-tech commode boasting three thousand cyclones per flush. “Sorry,” he apologizes, “but when …
 
Steve's already let his feelings on this week's Broken Record be known but can Remfry make him see reason? Short answer ... no. But then, both our hosts have a soft spot of sorts (one more so than the other) for One Hot Minute, the sixth full-length studio album by Red Hot Chili Peppers. An album which Steve believes ‘justifies their entire ridicul…
 
Food’s the common theme here! In “The Two K’s,” Gneeecey attempts to educate his protégé, mouse-humanoid Gneeezle’s employee Altitude. “I’m trynna teach ya ’bout the two K’s—cookin’ an’ cleanin’,” Gneeecey advises the hapless rodent after he nearly burns down the eatery. (Gneeecey had slapped some jackass burgers on the grill and ordered Altitude t…
 
We’re on home turf this week as Remfry and Steve dye their beards red, dust off their wallet chains and practise their tilted head / bug eyed stares as we head back to 1999 and re-visit Chamber Music, the second full-length studio album by Coal Chamber. Possibly the only band in the world who were proud to attach themselves to the ‘spookycore genre…
 
Kiss My Left Foot, Episode 1 Our protagonist, radio DJ Nicki Rodriguez remembers a particular day of her life in Perswayssick County. The bizarre locale is run by the elbow-high, walking, talking, zany Jack Russell-type dog Gneeecey. Trapped, broke, and suffering from dangerous dimension burn, Nicki’s living in Gneeecey’s pigsty of a mansion and wo…
 
There’s endless amounts of mid 00’s indie landfill for us to sort through on Broken Records, as you might well imagine, and that’s the territory we find ourselves in yet again, as Steve and Remfry hold their collective breath and dive head-first into The Twang and their 4th full-length studio album Neon Twang. Released in March 2014, Neon Twang fac…
 
We’re getting sexy with Emerson, Lake and Palmer this week on Broken Records, as Steve and Remfry head down for a taste of love on the Love Beach. The seventh studio album by English progressive rock band Emerson Lake & Palmer, it was released in November 1978 by Atlantic Records as their final studio album prior to their split the following year. …

It’s our 45th episode of Broken Records and we’re looking into the curious case of Fischerspooner, the electroclash duo and performance troupe formed in 1998 in Chicago after Warner Fischer and Casey Spooner met at school. #1 is the first full-length album by electroclash duo Fischerspooner released in 2001. It originally received a limited run on …
 
The customer is always right, so they say… hmmm… well, on this week's show we’re going to test that theory to the limit as we look at the second album from the early 00’s most successful hard rock revivalists; The Darkness’ One Way Ticket To Hell… and Back! Let’s hope you had a receipt for that catsuit. We’re joined by Metal Hammer editor and longt…

We’ve covered some absolute guff from the 90s on Broken Records, Steve and Remfry’s collective favourite period of time for music but it’s always led to some compelling, nostalgia-filled conversations and this week’s 90s entry is no exception. Stop, collaborate and listen cause Vanilla Ice’s on the mic and he’s jizzin out 13 truth bombs that are go…
 
Its episode 42 and we have a special guest with us for this week’s Broken Record in the form of metal aficionado and Hell Bent for Metal Podcast creator Tom Dare. And this particular episode is catered to his tastes perfectly … or it would be, if we weren’t talking about an album written and released in the past 10 years of 'anything you can do I c…
 
Steve and Remfry are talking about one of their favourite eras in music, so expect 90s references a-go-go as we delve into The Boy with X-Ray Eyes, the debut album from Wolverhampton’s one hit wonders Babylon Zoo. Released in February 1996. It features the single "Spaceman”, which charted at number one on the UK Singles Chart after being featured i…

Then we get into 'Adventure Awaits' where we talk about some really kickass spots to visit if you'…
 
Its episode 40 of Broken Records so how appropriate that Steve and Remfry return to one of their least favourite eras for guitar-based music, an era where the prefix ‘The’ was king (or Queen but let’s face it … mainly king). Melodia is the fourth studio album by Australian alternative rock band The Vines, a band who were signed to Capitol Records o…
 
We come to one of the most infamous examples of a Broken Record in the history of modern music, an album that has been on pretty much every list that we have encountered of worst albums ever. An album with a story so bizarre, ludicrous and inconceivable it has passed into rock n’ roll folklore. We won’t spoil the story for those of you who don’t kn…
 
There are bad records and then there are broken records … and by golly gosh are we covering a broken record this week! 28th March 2008 was a dark day for music, as it saw the release of Concerto in True Minor, the debut album from True Symphonic Rockestra. Masterminded by German producer Dirk Ulrich, the inspiration for Concerto in True Minor came …

There’s an air of slight befuddlement on episode 37 of Broken Records as Remfry and Steve discuss Tin Machine’s II, the 1991 sophomore album from the sort of supergroup. Sort of because really, the only member of the group that is ‘super’ is one Mr. David Bowie (you may have heard of him). Supported by 3 singles, the album peaked at number 23 in th…
 
We’re going big on this week’s Broken Records this week by covering American Life, the ninth studio album from Queen Madge herself, Madonna. Released on April 21, 2003, by Maverick Records and Warner Bros. Records, the album is a concept album (apparently) with themes of the American Dream and materialism and was produced by Madonna herself and Mir…
 
It’s our first foray into Soundcloud Rap on Broken Records and about time too(!) as Steve and Remfry talk about the debut album from emo rap lad Lil Xan, Total Xanarchy. Released on April 6, 2018, by Columbia Records (who really should have known better) the album features guest appearances from Charli XCX, YG, Rae Sremmurd, 2 Chainz, Diplo, Yo Got…

We're in previously uncharted Broken Records territory this week, as Steve and Remfry take a deep dive into the 1994 debut album from Naomi Campbell. Yes, that's right, Streatham's very own supermodel released a (predominantly) R&B record, because it was the 90s and the 90s was a weird ole' time for the music industry. We take a look back at the in…
 
We’re covering an artist that both Remfry and Steve have a lot of respect for this week on Broken Records, as we take a deep dive into Everybody’s Rockin’, the 13th studio album by Canadian legend Neil Young. Released on August 1, 1983, the album was recorded with the Shocking Pinks (a band made up especially for the occasion) and features a select…
 
Steve is on a mission this week to persuade listeners that every single member of a pop-punk band ever is in some way connected to or guilty of fornication with minors ... so that seems like a balanced and totally neutral place for us to start with Buffalo, New York pop punkers Cute is What We Aim For, a band who have seen 20(!) members file throug…
 
This week on Broken Records Remfry and Steve continue their search for the very worst record in history by looking at one of the most commercially successful metal (or ‘metal’ if you want to be a dick about it) bands … well … ever! Must be said though that One More Light, the band in questions seventh full-length studio album, is not the greatest m…
 
This week on Broken Records Steve and Remfry continue their search for the very worst record in history by looking at a genuinely legendary band; LA hardcore legends Black Flag, and their 7th studio album What The... , released on the 5th of November 2013. What should and could have been a glorious return to action from one of the most celebrated a…
