Sunday Slaylist: Download Festival 2014 – the bands you know

June 1st, 2014

Download 2014 Bands You Know Thrash Hits

In two weeks time, we will be at Download Festival 2014. Still the single biggest weekend in the UK rock calendar, once again around about 100,000 rock fans will descend upon Donington Park for three days of music, drinking, debauchery, and casual sexism. To get us in the mood for the first three of those things (let’s hope there’s a lot less of the fourth this year, right guys?), the next two Sunday Slaylists are all about the line-up to this year’s festival.

This week: The big guns. The heavy hitters. The bands you know.

“I f*cking hate Blink 182.” – Reading & Leeds 2014 headliners don’t satisfy all

December 6th, 2013

When the Reading & Leeds Festival line-up was announced and Blink 182 were the first headliners to be unveiled, a lot of people were grateful that it was a rock-oriented band even if they are a reformed dinosaur rather than anything fresh.

I fucking hate Blink 182. “Oh how can you hate Blink 182, Tom? They’re a really big and important band and that.” First things first, loads of stuff is big, that doesn’t make it important. Michael McIntyre is big but at an artistic level he is colossally unimportant and colossally unfunny – just like Blink 182.

Heavy Metal Sandwich 006: Noodles of The Offspring

February 22nd, 2013

The sandwich is possibly the greatest food-based invention. They allow us to eat and post on Facebook at the same time and absolutely anybody can eat them. Vegetarian? Put some more salad in. Belly doesn’t like wheat? Use gluten-free bread then! And everybody has a favourite sandwich. Even bands…

The Offspring are just about to head over to Australia to play the mighty Soundwave Festival. It’s a fair shout that the Californian punk rockers will feel right at home in the weather, eating off the grill non-stop, no doubt, but we caught up with guitarist, Noodles to talk about sandwiches

The Offspring are nothing if not reliable. Any new album is guaranteed to sound, well, quite a bit like the ones that came before. But then why not? They’ve found a formula that works, that’s sold millions of records and which, when it works properly, has been responsible for some really great songs. [Read more →]
