Forests: not exactly known for being refuges for angry hardcore kids, right? Well, that’s the case until this weekend’s upcoming Offset Festival. As if it weren’t enough that they have a bona-fide legendary band in the shape of The Slits headlining, there’s a hardcore stage over the two days that features a wealth of good bands. And my personal favourite is, of course, Rolo Tomassi.
That’s them bringing their dominance to a clothes shop. Surreal, yes, but it somehow works. BECAUSE THEY ARE BRILLIANT. What’s more, there’s a veritable bundle of free tunes to be downloaded below. Clickety!
Moreover, there’s The Tupolev Ghost, who you really should be in love with by now. Download ‘Giant Fucking Haystacks’ below and feel the force of that chorus. Seriously, it could slay a family of horses. If you’re lazy, just watch this video.
The likes of The Ghost Of A Thousand and The Plight will be doing that whole grizzled punk’n’roll thing that they both do so well, but I have to say it’s Attack! Vipers! and Maths who are most making me wish I could actually go to the damn thing. Suitably, there’s a tune from each to download below.
Enough chat: on with the free tunes. Download ’em and let me know what you reckon…
