Seems like the coronavirus is shutting everything down….but it can’t shut down the riffs! We’ve got new music from Twin Wizard, Bone Church, Humulus, Child and Slift on this week’s show and we take a look at some of the bands on Spinda Records because they are selling their entire 32 album discography on bandcamp right now for the INSANE price of 60 cents!! If that’s not enough to get you through self isolation then I don’t know what will!

Hour Of The Riff, Ep. 161

On Saturday I watched Green Lung and 1968 tearing it up in Glasgow and it got me thinking about how good the UK stoner doom scene is at the moment. HINT: It’s really good. So here’s a playlist filled with UK bands, with new music from Duskwood, InTechnicolour, Ritual King and Hair of the Dog and a few from one of our heaviest record labels, APF Records.

Brand New Hour Of The Riff hits hard right here!!! And by hard hitting, here’s what we can tell you about today’s show. Jonny is bringing the FIRST LISTEN of Zakk Sabbath’s cover of “Evil Woman” taken from their re-recording of Black Sabbath for the 50th anniversary. He’s also got loads of new music from StonusLowriderElephant TreeDisastroid and Pale Mare.

Here’s a bit more about today’s premiere, from Blasko… the band has re-recorded the first Black Sabbath album in it’s entirety for a limited edition release via Magnetic Eye Records. This is a stand alone single of Evil Woman that was the first Black Sabbath single released in the UK. It will be released on 12 inch vinyl soon but Hour of the Riff was given the exclusive first spin.
