Steel Panther. Lots of people loved them and lots of people just didn’t like them. It could never be a Marmite thing with these guys because they’re better than the 80s glam metallers they’re aping.

September 23rd, 2010

When Steel Panther play a last-minute gig to a tiny room of people, there’s not a chance in hell we’d miss it. Amit Sharma was down the front at the Old Blue Last watching (hopefully not underage) girls get frisky to some butt metal.
