Live: Kerbdog, Slaves To Gravity & The Computers @ London Camden Barfly – 16 August 2008

August 18th, 2008

After playing a few reunion shows in Ireland in 2007, Kerbdog agreed to play a Kerrang! Awards Show at the Barfly. Lynsey Wright was there to take some photos and report on a welcome return.

Cormac Battle Kerbdog Kerrang Awards show Thrash Hits

The Computers’ set is short, sharp and like a punch in the gut. Shrieks, screams and stop-gap drums make for an exciting show from this Devonshire band.

Second up is alt-rock band, Slaves to Gravity, formed from the ashes of the now defunct band, The*Ga*Ga*s, their power riffs and ballad-like songs can’t help but seem a little wasted on somewhere as small as the Barfly. It’s stadium rock at its best, err… minus the stadium!

After “10-odd years”, as front man, Cormac Battle, puts it, Kerbdog are back. And “who would’ve thought it?!” Yes, quite right Cormac, who would’ve?! It’s been a long time since the Irish trio graced the stage but the fans still flock in their herds to see if they’ve still got the magic.

At the Barfly in Camden they prove that they do. They churn out their best hits to chants of, “UK Tour!” from the audience and are bombarded with cheers before, throughout and after the set.

Crowd-surfers break their glasses and almost their bones as Kerbdog rock as much as middle-aged men can rock on a Saturday night in London.

Middle-aged or not, it’s clear that Kerbdog are still very much in demand.

Rival Schools. Several years ago myself and James, the keyboard player went to see them but it was raining so hard the venue was leaking so the gig was cancelled at the last minute, so we really want to see them.

Which band would you most like to share a hotel room with?
We’re sharing a bus with Dillinger and that is really good for credibility [laughs]. We already had a conversation about shit and I told Greg that I got hit in the head with some shit when I was younger. Maybe it was him. Shit is really, really heavy.

What’s the most memorable Download 2008 experience
It’s been a massive fight so far. We had loads of our gear stolen last night so we really took it out onstage today. It’s been nice to be able to tell my kids some day that we played with Motorhead and Kiss. Yeah, right!
Which band would you most like to share a hotel room with?
I’d like to share a hotel room with Incubus because we know those guys and we get along with them. We’ve got the same kind of West Coat vibe going on.
