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.

2008 into 2009: Outcry Collective

December 9th, 2008

The latest signings to Visible Noise, the trailblazers of British heavy music, are Outcry Collective. Lonely-sounding frontman, Steve Sitkowski discusses torture techniques and threesomes. Not at the same time, obviously.

What was your highlight of 2008?
I’m just gonna go with the first thing that came into my head – just like Dan Ackroyd at the end of Ghostbusters. We played at The Old Blue Last this year and from what I remember, it was awesome. We’ve played London a lot but that one stuck out in my head. No technical difficulties, no fights, no dickheads… ahhh, bliss.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
That’s an easy one – losing a band member.

Live: Kerbdog, Slaves To Gravity & The Computers @ London Camden Barfly – 16 August 2008

August 18th, 2008

After playing a few reunion shows in Ireland in 2007, Kerbdog agreed to play a Kerrang! Awards Show at the Barfly. Lynsey Wright was there to take some photos and report on a welcome return.

Cormac Battle Kerbdog Kerrang Awards show Thrash Hits

The Computers’ set is short, sharp and like a punch in the gut. Shrieks, screams and stop-gap drums make for an exciting show from this Devonshire band.

Second up is alt-rock band, Slaves to Gravity, formed from the ashes of the now defunct band, The*Ga*Ga*s, their power riffs and ballad-like songs can’t help but seem a little wasted on somewhere as small as the Barfly. It’s stadium rock at its best, err… minus the stadium!

After “10-odd years”, as front man, Cormac Battle, puts it, Kerbdog are back. And “who would’ve thought it?!” Yes, quite right Cormac, who would’ve?! It’s been a long time since the Irish trio graced the stage but the fans still flock in their herds to see if they’ve still got the magic.

At the Barfly in Camden they prove that they do. They churn out their best hits to chants of, “UK Tour!” from the audience and are bombarded with cheers before, throughout and after the set.

Crowd-surfers break their glasses and almost their bones as Kerbdog rock as much as middle-aged men can rock on a Saturday night in London.

Middle-aged or not, it’s clear that Kerbdog are still very much in demand.
