Nottingham metallers Evil Scarecrow have been captivating audiences for many years. From playing in local pubs, to holding their own on Bloodstock Festival’s main stage, the band are renowned for their epic live shows. This year saw the release of their highly anticipated 4th album, ‘Chapter IV: Antartarctica’, which they’ll be touring throughout the UK in January 2019.
Stuart Pearce is a name beloved by many a football fan. The former Forest captain is best known for his 12 years with the club and winning the League Cup twice. He also had stints with Coventry City, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Manchester City, while garnering 78 caps for England and helping the international side reach the semi-finals of both the 1990 World Cup and Euro 1996. Pearce later went on to a career in management, looking after England’s Under 21 team and the GB football team in the London 2012 Olympics. A long-term punk fan whose favourite band is The Stranglers, Stuart will be in conversation with RamAlbumClub’s Martin Fitzgerald.
