This week’s You Spin Me Round show on MetalTalk Radio features legendary Saxon frontman Biff Byford talking to MetalTalk’s Andy Rawll about the vinyl re-issues of the first three Saxon albums.

Biff and Andy pulled into a motorway restaurant and talked about where the intro to ‘Motorcycle Man’ came from and how Saxon went one better than Montrose with it, the debt he feels his band owe to The Friday Rock Show and Motörhead, the pressure they were under when they came up with two classic albums in one year and whether or not ‘Big Teaser’ was actually about tea drinking?

On this week’s show you’ll also get to hear tracks from the new albums by Promethium, Little Caesar, Lance Lopez and Velvet Viper as well as Airforce’s EP ‘Black Box Recordings Vol 2’.

You Spin Me Round is MetalTalk’s album review show featuring the best new releases with expert commentary by the top Metal reviewers around. The show is presented by Deputy Editor Liz Medhurst and is available to enjoy right here.
