Reading & Leeds Festival 2013 Thrash Hits

With the August Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaching, Reading & Leeds Festivals are once again upon us. As with every year, Reading & Leeds have a bit fat dollop of heaviness in among the landfill indie, so for this week’s Sunday Slaylist we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of the hardest and heaviest from their 2013 line-ups.

Something that doesn’t add up about Sharks is how publications like this very website – usually concerned with the heavier end of the musical spectrum – have come to write about them. Support slots with Gallows, Fucked Up and erm, Lostprophets have seen the band cast by certain sections of the media as the fresh-faced saviours of punk’s true spirit, while they’ve gone on peddling something closer to the radio-ready mod revival spearheaded by bands like the Ordinary Boys (remember them?) at the turn of the millennium.

Ah ha! Here it is then, “The Shape Of Punk To Come”. These four young lads from sunny Royal Leamington Spa known collectively as Sharks are being touted in some quarters as the bright young things of UK punk rock, but can their first full-length, No Gods, really ever hope live up to the weight of expectation that crowds their youthful shoulders?

With an upcoming tour with Gallows and their latest LP recorded with the legendary Steve Albini, the name of Trash Talk seems to be on everybody’s lips right now. We thought it’d be a good idea for Angie Louder to catch up with their frontman, Lee Speilman, to find out what it takes to get them to play a shows for weed, and how they got busted by the filth.

July 1st, 2009

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.
