The Thrash Hits Podcast 006: The Art of the Perfect Gig

July 18th, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

It’s been a little longer than normal between podcasts, and it’s for one simple reason – we’ve been to so many gigs since the last podcast that we simply haven’t found the time to be in the same room for long enough to record an episode. Handily, that’s the inspiration for the main topic of conversation on this week’s episode – just what is it that makes a gig great?

Did any of the gigs we’ve been too recently – including Faith No More, Pearl Jam, Baroness, Monuments, Kerouac and Sacred Mother Tongue to name but a few – made the grade as “classic” gigs? Raz and Hugh debate this question, as well as going over their all-time favourite shows.

Kerouac's Final Show by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Last weekend Kerouac played their final show ever. It was one of the best shows we can remember going to. We told you as much when we reviewed it. Now, statistically you probably weren’t there, but you can still make sure you show your appreciation for one of the best bands that’s broken up this year by buying their entire discography on sweet, sexy vinyl.

Kerouac's Final Show by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Oh man. It wasn’t a tough decision to head down to the Old Blue Last for Kerouac’s final show, but it sure as Hell was a difficult proposition to review it afterwards and convey even a fraction of how it felt on the night. Hugh Platt handles the words; Ben Gibson is our man with the camera.

Six things we learned when we saw Kerouac’s last EVER show:

Sunday Slaylist: Adios, Kerouac….

Next Saturday, one of our favourite British bands of the last few years, Kerouac, will be playing their final live show. When they announced their decision to split back in April, we went and drew a big red circle around 07 July on our calendars, as there’s no way in Hell that we’re going to not be there, screaming till our lungs hurt, and giving the band the send off they so richly deserve. But until then, we figured the best use of this week’s Sunday Slaylist was to showcase just why we rate this band so highly.

So Kerouac have announced they’re splitting up. Which sucks.

On Thursday, just when we were gearing up for a four day weekend of sitting in the park and drinking cider, Kerouac decided to announce that they were splitting up. While this news is terrible, we’re kinda glad we didn’t hear it 48 hours ago, as the feelings of sadness and disappointment this news has brought about in us would surely have soured the whole of our Easter holiday, rather than just half of it.

Thankfully, however, the band have given us a sole ray of sunshine to get us out of this black mood, by confirming one final London show before they finally call it quits.

Live: Pianos Become The Teeth @ London Camden Purple Turtle – 14 April 2011

pianos become the teeth band 2011 beach thrash hits

This is the first time Baltimore, Maryland emotional hardcore quintet (that photo is clearly very old) have made their way across the drowning pool to the UK. It would’ve been rude to have ignored Pianos Become The Teeth‘s first gig in London, especially as their album, Old Pride was TH scribe Tomas Doyle’s second favourite album of 2010. Who knows? It might turn out to be a really good show. (It was bloody amazing, FYI.)

Has there ever been a better time in the history of the UK underground than what we’ve seen in the last 5 years? True, we’ve seen many spectacular acts explode then implode, but they burned fast and burned hard. Now two of our favourite bands of last year have come together for a wonderful slab of 10″ grey vinyl – courtesy of Tangled Talk Records  – and they’re out to wreck your lives.
