So Download festival 2018 has been and gone, and the guys were there in full force. This week they look back, not so much at the festival itself, but at the coverage they got and what they actually did there, to see what can be improved for next time. There's already plans afoot for Bloodstock...

They also throw some merch ideas around. Turns out some designs are more successful then others, so in true Primordial fashion, they'd rather do more of what works, and less of what doesn't! Seems obvious when you say it, but you'd be amazed how often companies don't do it.

Welcome to this special bonus podcast of Primordial Radio at Download Festival 2018. There's chats with members of the PRfam, Parkway Drive, Massive Wagons, Avatar, TesseracT, Lawnmower Deth, Shvpes and the guys reflect on everything that's happened in the last two years and where we need to go from here.

Jun 7, 2018

This week Moose and Dews actually achieve their longstanding aim to record a relatively short podcast. With Download festival looming on the horizon there's pre-recording to do and packing that isn't going to do itself. That's not to say that they're going to click the "AUTO" button on the station as they leave for Donington, far from it. This week there's the latest on how exactly they plan to cover the festival, and how exactly YOU can help!

There's also the latest membership update, and - frankly - the most awful introduction to a podcast since podcasting began...

May 31, 2018

This week Moose and Dews ponder upon the meaning of life, the bleakness of absurdity, and what it would take to become the OFFICIAL ground cumin of the British Olympic Team.

They also talk about the Primordial Radio flags and how they didn't order enough of them, the latest membership update, and have some GREAT news about the Primordial Android app!

The main bulk of the conversation this week is about the upcoming Download festival, and the pointlessness of doing the same thing they've always done, in order to get the same content they've always got, with exactly the same results they've always come away with. It's time to try something different, except they're not sure what that is yet. Answers on a postcard...?

May 29, 2018

Welcome to episode 14 of the Binge Thinking Podcast. In this episode, Pete has a chat with Baz from Massive Wagons all about their new album "Full Nelson", how they got signed to Earache and future plans. There's also a chat with Esa and Tomi of Amorphis who talk about their new album Queen of Time and how they've managed to achieve longevity as a band.

May 24, 2018

This week on the podcast Moose and Dews find themselves in an EPIC BATTLE AGAINST THE CLOCK! Seriously, Moose had a conference call so they needed to get this recorded.

There was an interesting question posed on Facebook recently about the possibility of genre-based shows on Primordial Radio. The guys give this question a fairly thorough answering, as well as a membership update, Everybody Gets One, the latest on the Android app, and the upcoming merch bundle.

May 22, 2018

Welcome to episode 13 of the Binge Thinking Podcast with Pete Bailey. In this episode, Pete chats with Ally Dickaty of The Virginmarys in the lead-up to the AGM which took place in April, how they've had to rebuild back up as a band over the past couple of years, dealing with depression and anxiety and future plans. 

There's also a chat with Tommy Vext of Bad Wolves, who talks about the bittersweet success of their cover The Cranberries - Zombie with Dolores O'Riordan originally scheduled to record vocals on the cover before her sad passing. He also talks about the band's new album Disobey and other covers they might like to record in the future,

May 17, 2018

This week Moose and Pete talk shop, with details of the latest merch update (including patches and flags), a look back at the latest Primordial pub quiz and what the future may hold for that idea, as well as talking about a major change to the 'Everybody Gets One' campaign. They also embark upon a tech-related experiment, with mixed results.

Also at the end of this episode, there's Dewsbury's full chat that he had with the inspirational Sylvia Lancaster for the pub quiz about the amazing work of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

May 10, 2018

Podcasting together? In the same room? What a ridiculous idea. It'll never catch on. That said, it does make things a hell of a lot easier to edit...

This week Moose and Dews find themselves in Studio 2 just prior to the latest Primordial Radio pub quiz. They reflect on the PRFamfest of the last weekend, along with their failings as event organisers. So. Many. Fails.

They also introduce the brand new Primordial Pimp Points, together with the money-can't-buy idea of Primordial Pimp Hats. No, seriously...

May 3, 2018

Boy oh boy, is this a content-fest or what?! Moose and Dews couldn't shut up this week so it's an extra long podcast. To be fair to them, there's a lot of stuff to talk about.

This week there's life advice that ends up veering dangerously close to a Mumsnet podcast, along with the latest on PRFamfest and the upcoming Primordial pub quiz. There's also an eye-opening membership update, and the closest we're ever likely to get to Dewsbury with a serious business head on. It's almost like he takes this seriously.

Apr 26, 2018

With the hangover from the AGM fading, Moose and Dews look back on the best Primordial event yet, and look forward to next year, and how it can be bigger and better!

There's also talk of the upcoming PRFamfest and the pub quiz.

Apr 19, 2018

It seems like it was yesterday when we decided to hold an AGM. It seems to be even more recent that we decided to hold it in Lincoln, and more recently still that we made any firm plans! Yet The Primordial Radio AGM: Drinkin' In Lincoln is THIS COMING WEEKEND!

Join Moose and Dews (guest starring Betsy Evans and a delivery driver) as they discuss the latest plans for the AGM, the associated presentations and what is yet to be done.

There's also big news of the new Primordial Environmental Consultant, and his appearance at the AGM, the latest on the pub quiz and apps, and - because we're British (apart from the Canadian) - much discussion of the weather. You're welcome.

Apr 12, 2018

Of all the ideas that have ever sprung from the Primordial Radio podcast, possibly the stupidest one yet features on this very episode.

Join Moose & Dews as they journey to Shit Mountain, while launching visual products via an audio medium. Y'know how Smellovision isn't a thing? Neither is this.

In amongst the stupidity, the guys have BIG NEWS on the next Primordial Radio pub quiz and there's the latest on the upcoming AGM.

Apr 10, 2018

Welcome to episode 09 of the Binge Thinking Podcast. On today's podcast, metal legend Ian Hill of Judas Priest talks about the difficulty of Glen Tipton having to stop touring with the band, how the new album Firepower came together, headlining this year's Bloodstock Festival and will West Brom survive relegation under Alan Pardew?

There's also a chat with Lucas from Holding Absence and Kadeem of Loathe about their new joint EP "This Is As One".

Apr 5, 2018

Following on from an incredible experience on the road with the Long Road to Brewin' 2, Moose and Dews reflect on what was achieved and learned over the last week or so, from venue choices to alcohol choices.

They also answer a ton of questions from the #PRFam relating to LRTB2, the upcoming AGM and the next Primordial Radio Pub Quiz, including a reflection of THAT event in Manchester...

Apr 3, 2018

Welcome to episode 08 of the Binge Thinking Podcast, todays episodes features the delightful Jaret and Erik from Bowling For Soup.

Recorded just before their recent UK tour, they chat to Pete about finding the right balance between home and tour life, how they've managed to mercilessly to take the piss out of other bands but not end up in hot water and just how tricky it was to become a successful pop punk band coming from Texas.

Mar 29, 2018

This week the guys are out on the road for The Long Road to Brewin' 2, which started out as a road trip to meet as many of the PRFam as possible, but turned into Pete Bailey having naps in as many places as possible.

This podcast was recorded in the brief interlude when Pete wasn't having a nap, and sees Moose, Pete and Dews discussing their adventure so far, including the reasoning behind an insane trip into the North Sea. There's also news of the next Primordial Radio pub quiz.

All this from the back of a van, somewhere on the A1!


Mar 27, 2018

Welcome to episode 07 of Binge Thinking! Today's episode features plugger extraordinaire who talks about the mechanics of the music industry, working for "actual radio stations" and the new podcast she's working on for Primordial...

Welcome to episode 62 of the Primordial Radio Podcast. This week Dewsbury was off getting a tattoo (felt the calling for a return to his skiving ways) so Pete Bailey joins Moose this week for a catch-up on the AGM, Long Road To Brewin' 2 and there are five questions from Moose to find out what defines Pete Bailey... yaaaayyyy.

Mar 15, 2018

This week Moose and Dews somehow get lost while taking a walk down Memory Lane, but it does lead to them coming up with possibly the most brilliant/stupid idea since a friend went to South Korea FOR THE DAY! Seriously. Plus there's beer & pizza involved.

There's also talk about what they think is the REAL benefit of education (HINT: It's not just what comes from the lecture hall...)

There's also the most detailed plan yet for LRTB2, the latest on the AGM, and plans are afoot to try and rid Primordial of the technical gremlins once and for all.

Mar 8, 2018

The latest podcast is business as usual with Moose and Dewsbury bringing you all the scintillating updates from the worlds of event planning, tour planning and broadcast engineering that you'd expect.

There's also news of the latest addition to the Primordial merch store; CHOCOLATE! Because reasons.

Along the way, they discuss post-gym beers, the Primordial hammock room (needs to be a thing btw!), the price of Freddos, and the pointlessness of existence, but in a positive way. Honest.

Mar 1, 2018

As #Snowmageddon ravages the UK, the Primordial boys help out in their own inimitable way, which is to say that they don't help at all, and just take the piss.

This week Moose and Dews have an update on all the happenings in the world of Primordial, including the AGM, membership, tech-related news and - OH GOOD! - a new social media platform.

There's also news of the long-awaited STUDIO 4!

Feb 22, 2018

Everything we do at Primordial Radio is connected to everything else, even if it is in a loose, possibly ridiculous way. As we're still in our infancy, if we throw all our attention in one particular direction, then other things can suffer. This week the guys talk about trying to find that balance.

Moose and Dews also discuss Moose's stand-up career, which went about as well as you'd expect...

There's also the latest on the AGM, the current merch pre-order and tech issues - and what we're doing to sort them.

Feb 15, 2018

In the podcast this week Moose & Dews talk about the details of the upcoming merch pre-order (live Mon 19th Feb) and how it ties in with the Long Road to Brewin' 2. The #PrimordialPintback is a thing.

There's also talk of the recent technical issues that have reared their head. This is something that we're working on incredibly hard behind-the-scenes, as this will make or break us. If we can't sort the tech, we're sunk.

The biggie this week though, is the big announcement of the 3 bands who'll be playing the Primordial Radio AGM: Drinkin' in Lincoln, on Sat April 21st!

Feb 8, 2018

This week Moose & Dews discuss the Vorhees-like qualities that mean we just can't seem to kill Content Bear. He just keeps coming back.

There's an in-depth lookback at the latest Primordial pub quiz, with thoughts of how we can keep doing it. It was so much fun!

There's also news of the upcoming t-shirt preorder, as well as the latest on the AGM.
