Across the snowy wastes to West Yorkshire, travelling really wasn’t that bad and the scenery great. And I wasn’t the furthest traveller as the two main bands from Scotland were coming back from London on this mini-tour, was glad to see they had made it too. As usual I’d heard a couple of their tracks on underground crust/grind compilations knocking about, and they provided plenty of incentive to trek over, in addition to the knowledge that lots of the locals would hopefully brave the elements for the warmth of some blistering riffs.
