GIG REVIEW – 2 Sick Monkeys, Feral Existence, Emissaries Of Syn, Spam Javelin @ Stö, Leipzig

By |August 20th, 2017|0 Comments


We gatecrashed this gig as our Nuremburg dates had fallen through. Europe is actually a lot bigger than it is on the map! Drove through the day from Podbor in the Czech Republic to land in Leipzig; the New Berlin (I’m told).
Stö is a squat venue; the whole street is a squat. Great set-up and really nice people. Good to see Pete Butler of 2 Sick Monkeys again, and good to see him looking so well. The generosity of the venue was wonderful – free food, free beer, the offer of somewhere to sleep and money for fuel – and us being complete strangers.

A rare review! I’ve seldom put finger to keyboard over the past six months since starting my weekly radio show on TudnoFM. Time is a valuable commodity, and despite seeing loads of gigs, I seldom find the time to write about them.
So without further ado… Let’s get typing.

The Dirty Weekend (Friday) @ Penny Black / Xclusive, Wrexham

“Are you nervous yet?” I asked Elliot on the phone as I approached the campsite on the cusp of the 2012 Dirty Weekend, the first such festival in three years.
“Not yet,” He replied, “I should be, but I’m going to have a shower and some tea and it’ll probably hit me after that.”
Elliot Capper is partly responsible for this year’s instalment of The Dirty Weekend, which thanks to founder, Dave Cox, has had various guises over the annals of time; from the humble haphazard beginning in 2004 at The Dudley Arms in Rhyl, to the Morville Hotel on the Prom and the more audacious Hendre Hall near Bangor and now slap in the middle of Wrexham at the site of last year’s successful Ellfest…
Right in the heart of Chav City!
