This was our final radio show with 2XX. After 19 odd years of producing a fortnightly show it was a bit sad to leave for the final time but fear not as Mark, Stephen and myself will be continuing on producing a metal radio show that will be available online. Details are yet to be finalised but keep an eye our here or at the Let’s Mosh Facebook page here. We will be shedding the crappy Let’s Mosh name as it was never our choice so if you have a decent idea please leave a comment as the names that Mark and I have proposed are rather puerile.

Here is a photo taken of the three of us with Stephen looking gormless on the left, me smiling like an idiot in the middle and Mark looking like a derro on the right.

As it was our final 2XX show we of course played plenty of classics including a decent swag of Gore Beyond Necropsy songs, the mandatory Slayer, Therion and Napalm Death songs and also I played the Death song which was the first death metal I heard thanks to our predecessor show The Blitz. I was just searching my archives for an ancient flyer I have for The Blitz and I discovered the letter shown below which I received when I was in Year 12 at Copland College and hosted a weekly radio show which was blared from speakers in the canteen. As you can see poor Adam Rogers was a tad disturbed by the dulcet tones of N.W.A. being blasted at the poor canteen staff and I do recall getting a verbal warning about volume too (possibly revenge on my part for him misspelling my name!). I was one of several metal shows I think and I still remember my mate Rhyl jabbing a tape of the first Deicide album at me and demanding I play Blaspherion! I don’t recall ever playing other than heavy metal so I suspect his “NO SECOND CHANCES AT ALL” was only a bluff. Only problem was that barely anyone had that time off class so I was playing to a mostly empty canteen. Sounds a bit like 2XX…

This is the Duran Duran clip which we discuss on the show which is still played quite regularly in this uncut form on Rage. As a young lad with hormones galore this clip rated nearly as high as Samantha Fox’s “Touch Me” clip.
