Hadouken! - 'Every Weekend'

Hadouken! - 'Every Weekend'

The minute the gates opened, they came over the horizon; thousands of them, kicking up clouds of dust and stampeding into the NME/Radio 1 tent like herds of short-shorted wildebeest. Either every teenager at 2012’s Reading Festival had got the...

Album review: Hadouken! - For The Masses...

They weren’t joking. Who knew? When they climaxed early single ‘ Liquid Lives ’ with the refrain “ Drink! Smoke! Fuck! Fight! ”, everyone imagined Hadouken! were doing so with a certain smirk. Wasn’t this an example of the wryness...

Live Review: Hadouken!

Live Review: Hadouken!

Before Hadouken! appear, Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ launches from the speakers, and a group of otherwise-silent 20-somethings start cheering. But when it turns into a pounding remix, they howl with disappointment. Are they lost? This is no...

Hadouken! Leadmill, Sheffield, Saturday,...

Taking their name from a move in the greatest computer game ever – peerless retro beat ’em up Street Fighter II – Hadouken! obviously have impeccable taste in gaming. Heck, NME spent much of its childhood not only playing the game, but...
