Live: ’68 @ London Upstairs at The Garage – 17 August 2014

August 18th, 2014

'68 promo photo Thrash Hits

We’ve already ranted and raved about how much we like In Humor And Sadness, the debut album from Josh Scogin’s new band ’68. As frontman of his former outfit, The Chariot, Scogin had a reputation of being a firebrand frontman, turning gigs into furious maelstroms of flying bodies – can he transform that energy to better suit the less frantic sounds of ’68 though? We sent Hugh Platt down to investigate.

Six things we learned watching ’68 in London…

Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2014

July 20th, 2014

Hevy Festival 2014 Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

There’s just over a month to go until Hevy Festival 2014 marks the festival’s return to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park down in Kent. After – let’s be honest, a fairly disasterous turn of events in 2013 that saw the festival cancelling and taking a year off – the festival is back, with a new focus and energy behind it. It might not have the size or chequebook to match Download or Sonisphere, but the return of Hevy to the UK festival calendar is definitely something we can get behind – which is why this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about their 2014 line-up.

It’s might’ve been lying dormant for several years, but this year we brought the COROT-3b Prize back. Yes, we know that running an “alternative” to the Mercury Prize isn’t original. Yadda yadda yadda. You still want to know who we decided is the winner though, right? Because after discussing and debating the nominees in this edition of the podcast, that’s exactly what Raz and Hugh did.

HEY YOU: the Mercury Prize is announcing it’s 2013 winner on Wednesday 30 October 2013. That mean we’re announcing the winner of our COROT-3b Prize too. Don’t know what the COROT-3b Prize is?

TRC, Feed The Rhino, Palm Reader and The Hell head up tasty Christmas 2013 gig

October 2nd, 2013

Yes, the one-off London Christmas gigs are being foisted upon us already. The first one through the gates is the SGR Artist Management Christmas Feast on 19 December 2013 at The Borderline and isn’t the flyer a mighty fine piece of work?

SGR christmas feast menu final feed the rhino the hell palm reader trc borderline thrash hits

From the ridiculous to the downright self-effacing in its descriptions, it’s a flyer as rich and enticing as any Toby carvery and with The Hell, Palm Reader, Feed The Rhino, TRC and the eponymous Gallows bassist in town, The Crobar is going to be one hell of a beautiful mess that evening.

Buy tickets here and then come hang in the Crobar with us after. Messy Christmas?

Yes, yes, yes, the Mercury Prize doesn’t have any metal in it. Yes, yes, yes, it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

No Metal Mercury Prize 2009 Barclaycard Thrash Hits

Yes, we know the Mercury Prize is just a marketing vehicle for the NME and the Guardian and we’ve genuinely given up complaining about rock and metal not being included in there – even as a token gesture, like they occasionally do with avant garde and jazz artists – but it’s a bloody good excuse to have a little celebration of the excellent British music that has been released over the past year.
