Introducing…. Soccer With Rockers 2014: a Fantasy Football nightmare

August 19th, 2014

Thrash Hits BSM 5-a-side 2014 kym ellis. Taken by Kym Ellis - kymellis.com

That’s the Thrash Hits FC team photo taken on Sunday afternoon at the annual BSM 5-a-side football tournament. The important thing is that despite not winning, we definitely didn’t come last.

Anyway, the point is that the Raz-shaped half of the Thrash Hits editorial team loves football. It’s the glue that holds much of British society together, after all and the ubiquitous love often manifests itself on the internet in the form of Fantasy Football. So we made a league. It’s called Serie ARGH.

Live: Overkill, Pulled Apart By Horses, The Safety Fire + Wet Nuns @ London 100 Club – 09 August 2012

Converse Represent 100 Club Overkill Thrash Hits

When financial pressures and rising rent costs threatened to close London’s infamous (an yes, it’s one of the few venues that probably deserves such an epithet) 100 Club, Converse trainers stepped in with their chequebook to make sure the venue kept its doors open. This Summer, Converse also presented a series of curated nights at the venue, under the banner of ‘Converse Represent’. When it got to the heaviest of the shows – headlined by none other than Overkill – we sent that skinny punk beanpole, Tom Doyle, down to see what was what.

Six things we learnt when we sent Tom Doyle to Converse Represent at the 100 Club:

It is easy to wonder how on earth Djent will be looked back on in a decades time. It wouldn’t be an enormous leap of imagination to see it bearing the brunt of similar derision that nu-metal now faces some 10 years or so after that fads heyday – both comprise dudes in ill fitting clothes producing music predominantly for other dudes in ill fitting clothes with anguished “I won’t clean up my bedroom!” rapping now replaced by an equally unhealthy desire to hermetically seal oneself in a practice room and master the art of playing in 13/24.

July 27th, 2011

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Sonisphere Festival 2011: The Safety Fire @ Jägermeister Stage – Sunday, 10 July 2011

The guys from The Safety Fire are some of the politest people we’ve ever pointed a camera at. We talked a lot about their Mums and how proud everyone is of each other. We wonder if their Mums would be so proud if they knew their little boys turned up to a festival without their sleeping bags. They’d probably be worried sick.

Season’s Bleedings 2010-2011: The Safety Fire

December 30th, 2010

We respect Dez Nagle, guitarist with The Safety Fire. Mainly because he seems to have never taken any shit as a child, and his views regarding personal Christmas safety in relation to Greg Puciato should be heeded by all.

What is your favourite Christmas drink?
Any drink at a German Christmas Market. I’ve only been to one, but it was proper wicked. Best Christmas ever.

Photos + Live: Surfaces @ Brighton Engine Room – 07 February 2010

February 11th, 2010

Sundays? What are the good for? Asolutely fuck all (unless you’re enjoying one of our Slaylists, of course). Well, last weekend, Andy Parker found some solace from the shittest day of the week at Surfaces’ gig down in Brighton.

Sunday shows are always a gamble. More often than not, the punters are spread far and wide across the dance floor in fear of standing too close to the stage and relenting the return to work the following day, so I am highly impressed as I arrive on a windswept, corner of Brighton seafront, home to the sleaziest of the cities venues, Engine Room to find a near sold out status.
