The Gaff, Holloway Road June 5th
A very weird band indeed, hailing from New Zealand this 3 piece mix up strange influences and ideas creating a sound like Primus jamming with Mayhem.Great harmony vocals to death metal screams, jazz rhythms and power metal bass, its all there and makes for great listening if you are open minded.
Impressive rock trio who make a big noise, blending style and substance with equal measure.Catchy songs and big riffs go down a treat with the audience.
They pretty much bill themselves as a punk band, so thats what i was expecting, okay so they dont look punk but there is a touch of Dead Kennedys about them.
What we get is 40 minutes of pure entertainment, punk fuelled energy but with more than a hint of heavy metal, some great songs made to jump around too (that includes both singer and bassist who managed to fall/jump off stage).They also threw in a Jesus Lizard cover!
Playing without a doubt the best set i have ever seen from them, tonight they were on fire.It was a huge set full of amazing musicianship great vocals and Kit's swearing in between each song!
Highlights include "Drink,Fight,Fuck" , "Dont be Cruel" and the set closer "Asphyxiate " which finished with the dropping of trousers from Ben, Kit and Akis to reveal 'Mallory Fucking Knox' upon those sweet (and hairy - Hi Akis :) cheeks.
