All this hot weather…

…means I’ve not been near a dark’n’heaving music pub! So here’s a couple of reviews from the recent headKASE festival, held right here in Crewe, featuring a Stoke band and one from Alsager:

The Troops of Mafeking were their gnarly, passionate, fun selves. Clearly relishing playing to their growing fanbase, their traditional line-up delivers innovative song-writing. Give It Up is my favourite of their set.

Bleached Wail were outstanding. Their vocals often follow a raucous, bluesy, ‘call and response’ pattern, with heartfelt and personal lyrics. Just like The Troops, they obviously enjoy what they do, Bleached Wail give their absolute all to an audience. And way to reverb The Pink Panther!

Coming attractions

I’m going to be interviewing a local, indie DJ, so you can look forward to hot tips on the newest great bands. Plus further CD reviews to come, perhaps even further CDs to win.
