In 1999, a slightly disturbing young man declared we are Soldiers of Hell. We are neither soldiers, nor from hell, we do however recruit popular culture icons to create a military force to be reckoned with. Each episode we nominate someone new to join our ranks. A rank off if you will.

Soldier of Hell on tour! With a new series of Red Dwarf approaching, it would seem appropriate that someone from the ranks of said spaceship would finally join the Soldiers of Hell ranks. But what a way to land on a character! A boys camping trip, a ramble through the countryside, a ramble through allsorts of a topics, multiple guest voices, multiple guest ales at the Ashbourne beer festival. Just how do we end up with Kristine Kochanski via all that? There's only one way to find out....

The journey to ranking a fictional reality TV Show host and his Guy Fawkes style puppet "brother" is a long one, but it's succinctly documented in this podcast episode. Today we take a nice evening stroll, listen to Andy writing "What's The Deal With Europe?" in the original Andy'll Fix It radio episode from 2003 following Jemini's nil point Eurovision travesty. We also welcome back Spence's band - The Lomos aka PMATL - and as they play a new tune and talk about the inspiration behind it....

In 1999, a slightly disturbing young man declared we are Soldiers of Hell. We are neither soldiers, nor from hell, but like obedient little sleeper agents we have gradually recruited people from popular culture to create a military force to be reckoned with. Each episode we'll be nominating someone new to join our ranks. A rank off if you will. In this week's episode we discuss beer, DC universe reboot events, lego and Soldiers of Hell Top Trumps get's a mention from the archives.

Filling In Forms

Andy'll Fix It gets even more pointless than usual when Spence tries to get him to fill in as many forms in the back of magazines as possible in a wasteful way. Despite the apparent lack of point we do discover an alternative way to lose calories. Also, with the news that ITV are bringing back Blind Date, we remember what it used to be like.

Ahhh politics and reasons for Eurovision failure...They almost go hand in hand like key changes and removal of skirts. Well with just a few days to go until Eurovision 2017, Andy makes some optimistic predictions about the UK's chances of success - post-Brexit - in the greatest song contest of our time. Not long to find out if he was right or not! Also we check out how some of our archive predictions came to pass (or not).

Have you ever watched a film and thought: I could have selected a better theme tune than that? Do you miss movies having a big song in the charts to accompany it's release? We have. And we've made a podcast about it. Which includes our own take on what could be a Saturday Night Fever replacement.

Are we the point at which all pop culture converges? And what's the rudest sounding He-man character any way? In this episode we resolve those difficult questions plus a few more; rolling out Andy's new ledger in the process. We also set a brand new challenge for both of us to be resolved in a future episode. Delve in soldiers!

Hello listeners, we thought we ought to start this latest episode of the Soldiers of Hell podcast with a public health warning. This download is a special omnibus edition of the complete Steps: The Escalator Shop sketches. In case you didn't hear us talking about it last time, Steps: The Escalator Shop is a series that imagined what it would be like if the members of the UKs biggest ever mixed sex pop group (after All Stars and Scooch) retired from the music industry in order to run a shop...

In this episode, whilst battling with modern technology we get out our retro tech recordings to add even more nostalgia to the already vintage podcast; further cementing our new found "old men" status.

On the last show we mentioned our old radio feature Andy'll Fix It and how Spence used to set Andy unusual challenges. We also reminded everyone that Bond is a common topic on the podcast - as if you didn't know. So in the spirit of that, and as an excuse to banter whilst playing computer games, Spence set Andy the challenge of tackling Goldeneye whilst distracting him by wittering on about the usual Soldiers of Hell type of nonsense. Can Andy fix it?

It's been too long since we podcasted hasn't it SoH fans? Well we're back! No longer the young whipper snappers that we used to be. A lot has changed in the world in the intervening years; although some things remain constant. Steps seem to have made another comeback and the world wonders who will become the next James Bond. This one's a right nostalgia fest - but don't worry, there's more to come. We're back alright!!!

"You remember we were talking about Watching?" Let's talk about old TV, films and in particular the TV show Bugs. Remember that? With the chap from Eldorado. And the girl from The Bill. And the guy from Neighbours replaced by the guy from London's Burning. Listen and learn about things you shouldn't care about but obviously do.

September… Well, what can you say about September? Summer’s on the way out, but it’s not time to get excited for Christmas yet. There’s precious little to get happy about. However there is one thing that you can bridge the gap with. One shining aural saviour. Can a medium that is based on hearing, shine? A quality reserved exclusively for visual items? I don’t know, I’m not a physicist. But one thing’s for certain, Soldiers of Hell make for happy ears! In September’s *download*: The...

Ready… Set… Go!!! That’s right three exclamation marks after go. It deserves it, for August is the month of the year’s biggest event that doesn’t involve us… the Olympics. And as Bruce Forsythe might turn to an elderly auntie (devoid of the ability to produce offspring) accompanied by her favourite second nephew on the Generation Game and say “Didn’t they do well?”, so I turn to our precious glittering Team GB and say “Nice to medal you… To medal you nice”. Coincidence that our podcast...

It's cold outside… and not in that Tom Jones/Cerys Matthews pervey kind of way, but in a very real, freezing, chilblains kind of way. The sort of cold that every frozen balled Siberian knows. If Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky was here, that knee that Bond shot him in would be giving him some right gip! So why brace that temperature and get that opposable digit chilly, stay in and put it to good use on your generic mp3 player. Enjoy… In February’s **download*: The Soldier’s of Hell discuss…...
