What DO you do after releasing 'Achtung Baby' and already going off piste from what you're known for? Well, if you're U2 in 1993 then the answer is you go even more experimental and try new things to see what works. 

For this episode we have a very special guest in the form of Stephen Hill from Metal Hammer and the Riot Act podcast who is probably the biggest U2 fan we know and agreed to come on and tell us why we're wrong if we say we don't like one of their songs. It was a real treat for us to have this chat with him - go and follow him on Twitter so you can read some of the articles he writes about bands like Tool and Radiohead and make sure you check out the Riot Act Podcast itself to keep yourself up to date with all the new releases worth knowing about. Oh, and most importantly you can hear the Broken Records podcast that they do as well where they try and seek out the worst albums ever made. At least we have an excuse for listening to some of the rubbish we have to do for this podcast. They're doing it for fun.

As well as talking about U2 on this episode we also squeeze in some chat about bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, and, er, Spin Doctors. July 1993 was a wild time.
