Our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, makes no secret of his love for The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Will their original line-up reunion Halloween show leave him full of fanboy glee, or leave him wishing he’d stuck with his memories? Rhetorical question, ahoy!

The Thrash Hits Podcast 006: The Art of the Perfect Gig

July 18th, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

It’s been a little longer than normal between podcasts, and it’s for one simple reason – we’ve been to so many gigs since the last podcast that we simply haven’t found the time to be in the same room for long enough to record an episode. Handily, that’s the inspiration for the main topic of conversation on this week’s episode – just what is it that makes a gig great?

Did any of the gigs we’ve been too recently – including Faith No More, Pearl Jam, Baroness, Monuments, Kerouac and Sacred Mother Tongue to name but a few – made the grade as “classic” gigs? Raz and Hugh debate this question, as well as going over their all-time favourite shows.

Of all the things that happened this week, the news that The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster would be reforming was probably the thing that caused the most excitement here at Thrash Hits HQ. TEMBD are one of those bands who fell through the cracks between traditional heavy music and mainstream indie, and their decision to call it a day back in 2011 saw many – us included – feeling they never received the levels of success they deserved. Their reformation is more than enough justification in our eyes to break out a Sunday Slaylist of all their best songs.

Events
For those of you lucky enought to live alongside Thrash Hits in London town, tonight sees the launch of Someone’s Yelling Fire, a new punk/hardcore/metal/screamo/emo night at the recently-reopened Highbury Garage. Get there early enough and you’ll be able to catch live sets from The Xcerts, Save Your Breath and Flood of Red. Get their later, and you get to see Thrash Hits staffers collapse at the bar following an excess of beers. Double trouble! And just a fiver to boot.
