By |April 23rd, 2019|0 Comments

Cheeky boys from across the Mersey, Crapsons are back on TudnoFM and once again bang on form as they smashed out 5 songs live in the studio. Unfortunately I forgot to press record for their opening song Jee Wizz so we join the show about 15 minutes in…
Listen to the whole show (well, most of it) below and hear their forthcoming single Who’ll Babysit The Goths which, is apparently coming out soon on link2wales records!

Roadburn Festival 2019 @ Tilburg, Holland

So I had an urge, an urge to splurge on dirge.  2016 was the last time I was at Roadburn and I was missing it, so the itch in my ear had to be scratched.  There were some cool line-up announcements but past experience showed it was one of the best places for discovering new stuff from the eclectic mix of dark and heavy vibes they celebrate.

GIG REVIEW – Dreadfest 2019 @ Temple Of Boom, Leeds

rotten sound

What is there to Dread?  Last year I combined a day in Hammerfest in North Wales with a trip up to a couple of days of this festival of chronic sonic abuse, this year I dived in soft-shoe first for the full weekend in Leeds.  Leaving Hammerfest behind in some Brexit fashion (as now it in turn seems to be leaving North Wales behind next year too), not an isolationist stay at home but embracing connections to elsewhere.  While I have had some classic messy times and been grateful for great bands on our doorstep my refined/corrupted tastes are much more rewarded by all that is to offer over the Pennines.
