It’s Ten Ton Hammer day in London

Ten Ton Hammer are playing a show at London King’s College Student Union tonight, Wednesday, 06 June 2012. This band is suspected (but not confirmed) to be Machine Head. OK, it’s obviously Machine Head.

Also, Bloodstock Open Air Festival will be revealing its third and final headliner at 6pm (666, ahoy), just before the gig. Why on earth are we writing a post about these two completely separate events? Hmmm.

Here are some clues from the Bloodstock Facebook page:

Their first UK appearance was 1994.

Hey! Machine Head first played in the UK in 1994!

They have released seven studio albums and sold over 2.4 million albums.

Wikipedia says Machine Head have done that.

“A blind man asked an angel”

They’re lyrics from ‘Blood of the Zodiac’.

This is well cryptic. Anyway. It would be cool if this setlist happened again but obviously there have been 14 years worth of awesome Machine Head songs to add in since then, so it will be even better.

Good work on signing the setlist, Robb. Listen to The Thrash Hits Podcast 001: Download Festival 2012 Preview anyway. We talk about Machine Head on it because they’re playing at Download Festival. HOORAY!
