OUT TODAY – Gobow – Hector

No need for a Parental Advisory sticker on this new single from Wrexham’s Gobow, a Public Health Warning would be more fitting. If Hector was an earthquake it would render Richter redundant. It is like a confused storm; Hector is warm, cold, sometimes beautiful and also absolutely ferocious.

The deadbeats and the dispossessed crawl out for a final Christmas Kick Off before the day our lord Jesus Christ was born to save us all from paedo-priests, crazed religious psychopaths and the human race in general (thank you Jesus – you’re fired!).

Orient Machine
Gigs of this sort of – bubbling-under-the-NME-radar – size in Chester and Wrexham are a step up from what we are accustomed to down the coast. That is for varying reasons and these things tend to come in waves… The North East of Wales is currently dripping in quality bands and people eager to see them live, hence the need to travel on occasion to see bands of this ilk and hence the number of people crammed into The Compass tonight. These said artistes do wander into the badlands, but it’s a bit like Russian Roulette as to whether they’ll get an audience or not, and in some cases they’ll turn up and there’ll be no gig at all!

The band got me in as their ‘manager’ (the buggers) – this meant I had to gee them up, move them along and generally take the flak for them being late!!
