Wet Nuns

Women, death, beards, skulls and whiskey, the dark matters that are ground through stomach-churning guitars and ugly drumming to produce the trademark lo-fi blues-stoner-punk sound that has made the Sheffield/Leeds duo begin to make a name for themselves as one of the loudest two-piece bands ever. Their pseudonyms are many, but their alcohol tolerance is low, Ladies and Gentleman we present Wet Nuns.

Sunday Slaylist: Those we lost in 2014

December 14th, 2014

As we start to wind down for the year and reflect on the past 12 months, we thought it was important to remember that not everything abut 2014 has been about brilliant music or amazing gigs. As with every year, some of our favourite musicians who were with us back on 01 January will not be with us come the end of 31 December, and this week we wanted to take the time to remember a few of them, and their works.

Sunday Slaylist: RIP Alexis Gotts, aka Leki

November 30th, 2014

Alexis Gotts of Wet Nuns by Matt Thomas Thrash Hits

Earlier this week, the sad news was announced that Alexis “Leki” Gotts, drummer of Baba Naga and formerly of Wet Nuns, took his own life after a long battle with depression. It goes without saying that Wet Nuns were a fantastic band and the tributes and eulogies (particularly this one) that have poured in since the news broke show just how much he meant to so many, many people.

So, Wet Nuns have announced that they’re splitting up. As they gleefully posted on their Facebook page, “our four year long joke isn’t very funny anymore. We’re sick of the sight of each other and the band is imminently to cease to exist.” Fair enough. For a band who’ve spent nearly half of a decade arsing around, this hardly seems like an incongruous end. Rest in peace, Wet Nuns. Remain in obscuria.

The Thrash Hits Cloudcast 011: 30 September – 06 October 2013

October 2nd, 2013

TH-ON-MIXCLOUD-011

For this week’s Cloudcast, our deputy editor Hugh is going it alone – we’ve got a cut from In Solitude (our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week), as well as tracks by Soulfly, More Than Conquerors, Baby Godzilla, Conan, and Wet Nuns. Oh, and a track by a little-known Watford punk band called Shockmaster. Apparently, they are so very proud of all their boys.

We don’t write about every tiny band in the world in a hope to one day claiming that we wrote about them first. Take a look at our Future Hits section if you want proof. We DID however tip Turbowolf, Black Moth AND Wet Nuns, though. They played a gig together in London so of course we sent David Keevill down to watch them whilst feeling unnecessarily smug to ourselves.

 Six things we learnt from Future Hits alumni in Highbury:

Photos: Wet Nuns @ Liverpool Sound City – 18 May 2012

May 24th, 2012

Wet Nuns combo live at Liverpool Sound City c/o Matt Thomas Thrash Hits

Liverpool Sound City is what happens when a load of people get together and decide to host a 3-day music/tech conference in the North of England. Basically – it’s what The Great Escape is to the South, and what In The City used to be for Manchester. It’s pretty damn sweet.

When we heard that one of our previous Future Hits subjects, the sleazily, diesel-powered heay blues duo that is Wet Nuns, were one of the bands playing over the weekend, we shouted at our Liverpool-based snapper, Matt Thomas, to go snap us some photos.

Future Hits 114: Wet Nuns

Thrash Hits Verdict: We admit to being shallow individuals at times. We’re far more likely to click a link to a band that someone suggests to us if said band have an awesome name. Similarly, we’re far more likely to click away from said band with an awesome name if they turn out to be rubbish. Wet Nuns are not rubbish. They describe themselves as an “undead two piece power-death-blues-punk band who makes middle-of-the-road dad rock songs about mainly women or death, or women AND death”. They are in fact, the filthy, sleazy, whiskey-soaked duo of guitarist, Rob Graham and drummer, Alexis Gotts, and they make music that makes us want to get in bar fights in the vain hope that it might impress hot girls with tattoos.
