MEAT is definitely the pervading theme for this month’s Ogg-Cast.

I’ve been waiting for this one for a while: I think it’s going to go down in history as one of my all-time favourites. This is the longest, and by far the meatiest Ogg-Cast ever. Long-time listener Keri O’Shea is partially responsible for this, having sent me a copy of The Decadent Cookbook with a whole chapter on the world’s host horrifying sausages in it, but there were also a couple of bands I’d been meaning to play for a while and they, somehow, found themselves tied up with a sausage theme. This runs right through the show, and has even taken over the usual Covered slot – in which a certain notorious sausage-o-phobe is given a right and royal skewering. Like a köfte kebab, which is a bit like a sausage.

Otherwise, there’ll be a nod to the fact that this is Devin’s Day (see last year’s show, still available in the Archives, for the explanation), as well as a Hidden Gem that was particularly well hidden, three more suggestions from Paul Houlton’s Recommendations Corner, and, of course, the second instalment of the Hammer Of Retribution World Tour, which goes to North America and is particularly worth your attention.

Four hours, as near as makes no difference, of the finest metal on the planet. And a big plate of sausages. What more could you want?
