Oh it’s been away for a while, but Sonisphere Festival has returned to the UK and is less than one whole week away. We cannot wait. We are excited. There are loads of our favourite bands playing at the magnificent Knebworth Park, which is why in time-honoured tradition, we’ve gone and made ourselves a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of some of the bands we really want to see next weekend to get us well and truly in the mood for Sonisphere’s comeback weekend.
'If someone in the 1960's had imagined ('Space: 1999' style) what rock and roll would sound like in 2009, Bo Ningen is what they would have heard in their head.' - Loud & Quiet
Bo Ningen are a Japanese four-piece acid punk band consisting of Taigen Kawabe, Yuki Tsujii, Kohhei Matsuda and Monchan Monna. Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.

Bo Ningen are exactly the kind of Japanese stoner-artrock-doom that hipsters love to namecheck, but don’t actually really like. Which is handy for us, as we actually do like them.

It’s not often we say this – fuck, it’s probably the only time we’ve ever said it – but this weekend London is just Too Damn Metal. Not only are EyeHateGod playing at ULU tomorrow (Oh. Hells. Yes!), but the number of metal events going on this weekend that we actually want to go to (as opposed, y’know, to shitty clubnights full of children listening to shitty punk music) actually exceeds our ability to attend.

…then you could do a whole shit less well than coming down to Brixton anyway, as the cosmic riff rumble of Invasion will be playing a free show just up the road at The Rest Is Noise. Actually, even if you’re one of the poor multitude that isn’t lucky enough to live in grimy, dirty, beautiful shithole that is London, Invasion are doing an entire tour of free shows throughout the UK over the next few weeks, so plenty of you will get a chance for some. Get. The. Fuck. In!
