08:00pm Bad Breeding
10:30pm fin du concert
The set was a bit short, but good.
Rascals from Leeds who, on their self-titled debut, generously dish out furious post-punk that reminds one of the ’80's and Killing Joke, Echo & The Bunnymen and Joy Division.
Eagulls’ rather gross video clip for single ‘Nerve Endings’ (filming the rotting process of a pig's brain as the ‘story’ and putting up with a police raid after a concerned passer-by happened to see the sight!) and a sharp but hilariously written open letter (in which they complained about the unprecedented influx of beach- & hipster bands) were what brought them into the spotlight in Britain… Their impressive head-butt of a debut did the rest.
“Not to be confused with the American band The Eagles” is to be read on their Wikipedia page. Well, listen to their first issue and there will be a great desire to go burn down the Hotel California personally.
On new single ‘Burn This Flag’, newcomer Bad Breeding (moulded by the keen rock & roll of the The Kinks via Hüsker Dü to Black Flag) furiously fights the complete hopelessness and unemployment that is the scourge of regions like their hometown Stevenage. Post-punk with a message!
