Life must be hard for Dave Grohl. He must wake up and have no idea what to do with himself. Jam with John Paul Jones? Beer with Lemmy? Smoke a fattie with Josh Homme? Poor sod. Having one of the most impressive CVs in rock ‘n’ roll must be hard. People expect a lot, like great albums – something which Foo Fighters have failed to deliver for the past decade. Don’t get me wrong, the singles have been good but the albums as a whole have been lacking since 1999’s There Is Nothing Left To Lose.

Regardless, there are moments in your life when you hear about a gig and instantly know that you cannot miss it for the world. We felt like this when Kiss played Islington Academy last year, so when news broke of Foo Fighters playing a secret show at Camden Dingwalls, we knew we had to be there. Whatever it takes. Right?

Japanese Voyeurs
From: London, UK
Sounds like: Daisy Chainsaw, Babes In Toyland, Kyuss
Website: www.MySpace.com/JapaneseVoyeurs

Thrash Hits verdict: The grunge revival is alive and kicking right here in the UK of A and Japanese Voyeurs are most definitely one of the hottest frontrunners.
