Remember Bells? Yeah it was an age ago but this Ain’t That Swell have only just released their Bells wrap and it’s clear the boys like to marinate on their thoughts for a month or two before spewing them into the universe. This ep sees the welcome return of Former World Number 1, tsunami survivor and a man who likes to head butt rocks Big Bad Bob Bain who along with Jed and Vaughan tackles everything from Tommy Peterson’s Slater spray at the Mick Fanning farewell dinner to whether or not hugging Tyler Wright and Courtney Monologue is ok or a total invasion of their personal space. There’s no Margies chatter at all but we’re sure they’ll get around to that event in the next six months or so. Severe language warning – this poddy ain’t for the sensitive creatures amongst us.
