  • Easter Monday Punkfest

    19 Abr 2006, 23:19 de DiamondDave

    Went up to Gloucester on Easter Monday for what was the last date of this years short Easter punkfest tour, featuring four main bands and local support at each venue.

    A problem at the box office meant I missed the start of first band Murdoc (no, nothing to do with the band Gorillaz), but managed to catch a decent enough chunk of the set. Saw them last year and thought that although they were competant and played good punk tinged rock and roll, they didn't quite have enough to make them REALLY special. It was pretty much the same this time as well. That said, they were perfectly enjoyable for most of their set and deserved more attention than they received (early slot didn't help obviously). Special marks for their obsessions with 80s US pop starlets Belinda Carlisle and Tiffany and their genitals...

    Local punk heroes Demob were up next, rather too shouty/Oi! punk for my tastes but they went down really well with the local crowd.
