A Newport band who are playing on Steve Lamacq’s Going Deaf For a Living Stage at Swn with Jim Jones Revue and Sissy And The Blisters. Rousing and ferocious live, they have anthems aplenty, and if you remember 60ft Dolls, they’re not a million miles away from their awesomeness.
Man Without Country
Pulsating, longing and enthralling, Cardiff based Man Without Country seem to be doing things on their own terms, to great effect.
The Dutch producer’s recent album, ‘Ghost People’, is a hefty feast of deep rhythms, some smart collaborations and enough to bass to clear your head after a weekend moshing. Gonna be a big night.
