What Is It With Wolves…?

Just a short piece that starts with a question…

What the fuck is it with bands and wolves?
I just don’t get it… Have I missed something…?
Martin White (via twitter @MartinW) brought it up a couple of days ago when I added new Abergele band White Wolves to the link2wales listings; and it is a subject I did bring up at the turn of the year when Joy Formidable released their second album ‘Wolf’s Law’ amid canine orientated bands barking from the woods of North Wales and beyond.

Hardcore in Prestatyn? On a Wednesday night? What madness is this?! Now don’t get me wrong there are events going on in Prestatyn all the time but not of this quality. After all this has Bastions as its headliner on a warm up gig before their 14 date European tour with Battle For Paris. Certainly it was a cracking line up formed by the new boys in Dirty Vultures Promotions.

Murky midweek mayhem, with an excellent line-up presented on the doorstep by the newly founded Dirty Vultures Promotions. Their previous connections to funtimes at Speakers Corner in Colwyn Bay had enabled the persuasion of this return (close to) home for the much travelled and currently disparately located Bastions. Having seen the venue many times passing on the train as it is right next to the station it seemed ingrained in my memory but when inside and seeing the pretty decent set up in there I figured I may well not have actually been there before. There’s not the best of turnouts for a gloomy Wednesday but vibe is still good.
