After getting spaced with Hawkwind, then Blitzed at some club after to 4 in the morning, getting blasted all day in Liverpool to finish couldn’t possibly be a good idea, could it? Originally I’d only planned to stop off for a couple of hours to offer support to the worthy cause of this fundraiser for P.D.S.A., never mind to the organisers and bands in general. However, a last minute change in plans meant I had to man up / drink up and face to prospect of the full session.

A free bank holiday for me gave the opportunity to ram it full three courses/days of entertainment down my neck/ears until I was fit to burst (eardrums). First of these involved a trip to Liverpool which has been coming more on my radar a bit recently with the regular extreme metal shows put on by Whiplash at the Masque, and as it’s a train ride and a cheap hostel away, it really should be visited more. This veritable feast of death/grind/hardcore would be a perfect starter, although it summoned ominous clouds and torrential downpour that turned the streets to rivers and kept everyone sheltering in the venue confines.
