Sequelisers Season 2, Episode 5: Superman III

Superman III Image

This is probably my favourite episode of Sequelisers so far. Superman III is a movie that I remember not liking, even as an eight year old.

(Controversial opinion: I actually prefer Superman IV, and not just for the Milton Keynes connection…)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening to this one as much as we enjoyed making it!

Sequelisers Season 2, Episode 4 is live! In this episode we’re fixing The Matrix Reloaded – possibly the most requested film from listeners of the show. It’s one of my favourites we’ve done so far, partly because Ashens went so downbeat with our pitch ending that it literally stunned the room into silence. If that doesn’t make you want to check it out, I don’t know what will!

Metallica: The O2, London, October 24th 2017

Metallica for website
I’ve seen Metallica eight-or-nine times in the past decade-and-a-half. Tuesday’s performance at The O2 might just have been the best. Live premiere of “Spit Out the Bone” was awesome, the sound was pummelling and the band were on INCENDIARY form. Check out my review of the show for Ultimate-Guitar.com.
