Great Escape 2013: John’s Day 2 Evening Roundup

 
By on Friday, 31st May 2013 at 3:00 pm
 

An American Diner hot dog and a chat with the lovely Nina Nesbitt was my treat for the interval between bands on Day 2 of the Great Escape 2013 as I ventured across the Brighton seaside for some rock and roll at Concorde 2, courtesy of Arcane Roots, Marmozets and to a far, far lesser extent, Hacktivist.

Following the release of their debut record ‘Blood and Chemistry’, Arcane Roots have built upon their already formidable stock, gained through endless touring and promotion to become a hearty prospect on any billing. The record ‘Blood and Chemistry’ itself is fantastic, and is chocka block with the kind of anthemic rock music that Arcane Roots are powering out at the moment.

Live at Concorde 2, the guitars are absolutely huge and frontman Andrew Groves and bassist Adam Burton throw themselves about the stage with such force, it’s a miracle that by the end of the 30-minute set that they haven’t collided in anger. Central to the showcase is Groves’ tremendous vocal range, with his piercing falsettos and screeches reaching the ceiling of Concorde 2 before plummeting down to meet us in the pit.

Slow is anthemic in its inception and it’s obvious that this festival season you’re going to hear a lot of it. Maybe not as much as Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, but still, you can’t miss it. It’s huge. The entire set though proves a testament to how the band is destined for a massive 2013 and onwards. The songs are brilliantly constructed, and the three-piece pull those off with ease in the live arena, adding a beautiful bedlam to the proceedings. (9/10)

Marmozets offer up a less refined platter than Arcane Roots. Their music is very raw, with cutting riffs galore. Frontwoman Becca MacIntyre is not cut from the clichéd Hayley Williams or Florence and the Machine cloth that every female focal point is lambasted with these days, instead she hails from the relatively new school of Eva Spence. The kind of madam, who is not to be f****d with, if you get my drift?

While the rest of the band look no older than 16, they shred away through a set littered with wonky time signatures and shrieks. It’s a brilliant kind of catastrophe on stage as the band do look like they met 5 minutes before, but the music more than compensates as belting tune, after belting tune is produced by the five piece who have been garnering some more than favourable reviews from the associated rock press. (8/10)

Now after two brilliant sets of proper rock ‘n’ roll I was presented with the nu-metal sludgery of Hacktivist. A truly vile and awful band that genuinely upset me. Their cover of ‘Niggas in Paris’ by Jay-Z was frankly offensive and their nu-metal bile was aggressive and at times frankly just rude. No grace, no charm and arguably one of the worst bands I have ever seen live. Nothing more to say really, except that anyone saying nu-metal belongs in 2002-ish clearly hasn’t heard Hacktivist and realised that even Limp Bizkit had more going for them than this group. (0/10)

It didn’t get better from there sadly, as I ventured to The Loft for something a little lower key. Instead I was greeted by the tuneless aural assault that was The Weatherbirds. To give the lads credit, they are young and obviously were nervous, but it was a set of monotony, where each song blended seamlessly and regrettably, dully into the last. Luckily, it was only 15 minutes long. (3/10)

To close the night at The Loft were Nightworkers, a band who sported hairstyles from a variety of genres and generations. We had a faux Robert Smith on lead guitar and Huggy Bear’s English cousin on bass, fronted by a veritable Jim Morrison/Tom Meighan collaboration in the form of Jack Moullin. The songs are there, first and foremost, as a live outfit they are really tight regardless of whether their keyboard player Joe Haberfield is available.

Going back to the Meighan comparison though, Nightworkers have everything about them to emulate the Leicester-born, heirs to Oasis’ throne. Frontman Moullin is confidence personified and the lad-rock swagger is there in abundance throughout their short set. It’s all about boozing, broken romance and a bit more of the former and the crowd respond with a minor stage invasion, to which the band reacted well, by joining in the party on stage. (8/10)

After a break to catch my breath after the chaotic scenes at The Loft, it was off to arguably the biggest spectacle at The Great Escape 2013: the return of Klaxons. Now, I never got the fuss about Klaxons when they were first about, sure one of their members is fornicating with Keira Knightley and she’s swanning about Brighton and yeah, 2006’s ‘Myths of the Near Future’ was a top album. But 2009’s ‘Surfing the Void’ was utter bile, bar ‘Echoes’, so why the fuss? The whole ‘inspiring a genre’ is something I don’t buy into at all. However, with an opportunity to catch what the hassle was all about was one I couldn’t resist.

What I was met with was a slap in the face, as the synth-driven awesomeness of ‘Atlantis to Interzone’ hit me smack bang in the face. The set began at that pace and there were no signs of it ceasing, as the new songs which everyone was anticipating fitted seamlessly, into a set of Klaxons at their poncho wearing best.

Five new songs in total were what we were treated to, and if that is the quality that we should be expecting from their third record, then I am definitely in for a telling off. Thanks for proving me wrong, Klaxons. Now do something more awesome. I dare ya! (9/10)

To end the night, it was to somewhere a little more low-key than the Corn Exchange, the Green Door Store, where Canadian rock band The Balconies were closing the evening’s shenanigans. The sound was the opposite of low-key though, as frontwoman Jacquie Neville gyrated and gesticulated about the petit stage. The disappointment was that the band’s bass and guitar monitors were sadly far too loud and drowned out Jacquie’s voice, which on record for the Canadian outfit is the finest part.

However her energy and the sheer brutality of some of the songs were enough to limp along the set, for an extremely LOUD end to day 2 in Brighton. (5/10)

 

TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013: Rock, punk and metal UK artists showcasing at this year’s SXSW

 
By on Tuesday, 15th January 2013 at 11:00 am
 

Please note: all information we bring you about SXSW 2013 is to the best of our knowledge when it posts and bands scheduled to appear may be subject to change.

Carrying on with the genre section of the exclusive TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013 to continue through January each Tuesday, today we’re bringing you the UK bands slated to perform at this year’s SXSW that play rock, punk, metal and every combination in between. (Last week, we brought you the pop and pop hybrid acts list, which you can catch up on here.) Each part of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013 is a handy resource if you’re wondering which acts to catch at this year’s marathon week of showcases, parties and secret shows. But I hope it’ll also introduce you to the solo artists and bands you haven’t heard of, because that’s the most exciting thing about SXSW: at any one moment, you could walk into a bar, a club, a hotel, a warehouse, wherever…and you might just discover the next big thing in music.

What do all these acts in the rock / punk / metal genre list have in common besides being from Britain? Powerful guitars, punishing bass and drums and in most cases, vocals worthy of idolatry. How they achieve this differs from act to act, as you will read and see/hear below.

Belligerence (added 10/01/13) – heavy metal from Portsmouth. I’m finding it hard to find information on them, as there’s another band – also metal – from Prague with the same name…

File next to: Biohazard, Clutch, Pantera

The Blackout – Welsh post-hardcore band who have been soldiering on since their formation in 2003. Right, that means they’ve been around a decade. How many other bands, no matter what the genre, still exist after 10 years? They must be doing something right. Their next album, ‘Start the Party’, is scheduled to be out on the 21st of January 2013. We won’t post the name of their sweary big hit, but John mentions it in his day 2 roundup of Leeds Fest 2011.

Brutality Will Prevail – This Cardiff hardcore band had been signed previously to Alex Fitzgerald’s Holy Roar label and are now with Purgatory Records (sensing a theme here?), who this year released their latest album, ‘Scatter the Ashes’. Expect something punishing.

Touring with: Cancer Bats and Empress in March 2013 (maybe now they won’t appear at some of the dates on this previous organised tour, since the middle of it is smack dab during SXSW).

China Rats – Leeds lad rock. Legend has it that thanks to the tour bus of Bat for Lashes breaking down on the way to this year’s Benicassim, the band found themselves headlining the Valencia festival. Is ‘(At Least Those) Kids are Getting Fed’ a commentary on the North East, or a wider problem across Britain?

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52bv0BorhFM[/youtube]

The Crookes – The Crookes made their SXSW debut in 2011 and when I finally met them in Brighton in May 2012, they were eager to return, so I’m really pleased for them getting another SXSW nod. This time, they’ll have the good time sounds of ‘Hold Fast’ (my top album of 2012) under their belts and I’m sure there will be a gaggle of new American fans of theirs (mostly female?) following their every move. I’ll be catching them as many times as I can, so do come and say hello.

Seeing that I’ve been a fan of theirs since the ‘Dreams of Another Day’ EP in 2010, there is a boatload of Crookes coverage you can read on TGTF, starting here.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TppUoY4zpFQ[/youtube]

Crowns – Coming off of their December tour raising awareness of UK homelessness, Cornwall’s Crowns will bring their fun rock ‘n’ roll sound to Austin. I missed their show at the Cornwall Pasty Company at last year’s Great Escape (really kicking myself over this…I mean, come on, that would have been the ultimate party conversation starter, right?) but I’m determined to catch them on American soil.

Read all of our previous Crowns coverage here.

The Enemy – my guess is that the Enemy are to be the younger equivalent of and will act like Kaiser Chiefs at last year’s SXSW: pulling in a good number of fans for their perfectly good but possibly unextraordinary sets in a post-Oasis breakup world. Since they’ve been around for a while (3 albums’ worth) in the UK, they’re not likely to be high on the average UK attendees’ must-see list, but I’ve never seen them before, so if they show up at Stubb’s, I might head on over.

Read our previous Enemy coverage here.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lupg5BHzH34[/youtube]

Evans the Death – This band already has a Rolling Stone description (huh?): “This London band mixes post–Smiths jangle and early–grunge sludge, as Katherine Whitaker explores varying shades of bad romance. Her raw emotion blends with slashing, whirling guitars to inject paralysis with weird power.” When you see they’ve been signed to Slumberland Records here in America (‘Allo Darlin’ and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart‘s American home), it all seems to make sense…

Sounds like: the Libertines, if they had a female out in front

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX8VcqY8qts[/youtube]

Gallops – why do I feel the need to mention Mogwai every time I hear a proggy band? Wrexham group Gallops aren’t nearly hard enough to warrant the comparison, although with titles like ‘Astaroth’ and ‘Hongliday’ their Blood and Biscuits’ debut ‘ ‘Yours Sincerely, Dr. Hardcore’, you’d not be putting experimental band in the pop box anyhow. (Something interesting I found on the band’s Tumblr: the linked to the Kitsune Maison 11 compilation – didn’t see that coming at all.)

Gallows – they’re punks. They deliver punishing sets at festivals, such as at 2000 Trees last year. And Frank Carter left them in 2011 to start Pure Love. That’s all you really need to know, right?

Hawk Eyes – punishing hard rock from Leeds. Their 2012 album ‘Ideas’ got top marks from Kerrang! and Artrocker so you know where this is going…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1szIsuhqcUc[/youtube]

Nik Turner’s Hawkwind – the current incarnation of history’s first space rock groups.

Heaven’s Basement (added 10/01/13) – a hard rock band who has been soldiering on for quite a while (since 2008) and are releasing their debut album, ‘Filthy Empires’, this year. They’ve supported big names like Bon Jovi and Papa Roach, so is this an indicator of their hard rock prowess? We’ll see at this year’s event.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP1u79wSdDY[/youtube]

The Joy Formidable – what can we say about Welsh rock band Joy Formidable that hasn’t already been said? When you’ve been hand-picked by Dave Grohl as the man’s own favourite band right now, calling them “a killer live band”, ’nuff said really, yeah? The other facts that they are truly some of the loveliest people we have met and are always so happy about our coverage of them? That’s just icing on the cake. I’ve seen them several times now but the only time I’ve seen them at SXSW was on a live stream in 2011, which doesn’t really count, so I’m making it a point to catch them this time around.

Read all our previous coverage of the Joy Formidable here.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_t4s-HX3z0[/youtube]

Kassidy – some have called them the Scottish Kings of Leon, but that’s just lazy journalism. We’ve been following the folky rock hybrid band since their early EPs in 2010, and trust us, they’re way better than the Followills.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMiBIHqeoa4[/youtube]

Read our previous coverage of Kassidy here.

Kill It Kid – wow, I don’t have to write a piece on them, because they placed #10 on our 10 for 2013 list and Martin’s already done for me. Revivalist blues from Bath.

Klaxons – they’ve been around a while. They won a Mercury Prize in 2007 for ‘Myths of the New Future’. Their last album ‘Surfing the Void’ released in 2010 “>has a cat in an astronaut suit on the cover. Sorry, I’m having trouble sounding knowledgeable about Klaxons because I don’t really like them all that much.

Read our previous coverage on Klaxons here.

Little Barrie – ‘powerhouse’ is a word that seems to be following this Nottingham formed, London transplanted trio. But if you’re going to call Little Barrie a powerhouse trio, then surely you mean to compare to the greats of rock ‘n’ roll.

Sounds like: a more radio-polished Cream or at least a band that came out swinging in the Sixties, not in the Noughties

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/25333478[/vimeo]

LostAlone – Derby band who have been described as “breathtaking Queen-style harmonies and classic metal bite” and compared to Muse. How is it possible that we’ve never heard about them, then?

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47rV458G-f4[/youtube]

New Ivory – according to MTV Iggy, these guys from London are the new knights of British indie rock. I am struggling to find a comparison, except maybe they sound like early Arctic Monkeys or Two Door Cinema Club, but not as catchy? (Yeah, I know. Damning with faint praise, aren’t I? Sorry.) Steve Aoki is a fan, having signed them to his Dim Mak Records. I dunno. Maybe they’ll actually sound better in person at SXSW.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHEJaMTQJv8[/youtube]

Orange Goblin (added 10/01/13) – formerly known as Our Haunted Kingdom, on first glance you have to wonder if the new name was for a cuddlier image. So imagine my surprise that this is a heavy metal band! Having put out their first album in 1997, they’re definitely the granddaddies of the rock/metal/punk group, but having changed their sound from stoner/doom to their current more metal sound proves that they aren’t willing to stand in one place musically. A special live album for their devoted, ‘A Eulogy for the Fans’, will be released in March.

Palma Violets – I’ve refrained about writing about Palma Violets from Lambeth, South London, as what I’ve heard from them makes me think of The Vaccines, who came out of an NME promotional campaign firestorm and their #3 placing on the BBC Sound of 2011 poll with loads of fans clamouring to see them at major festivals. It’s 2013 now and look what’s happened: Palma Violets are on the BBC Sound of 2013 longlist. Overhyped band leads to foregone conclusion…appearing as a support act to headliners Django Django on the 2013 NME Awards tour next month sounds like an NME mistake then…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poFXWUTEs1k[/youtube]

PAWS – Scottish three-piece banging out tunes in a garage-y, lo-fi style. It should come as no surprise that they have a strong DIY aesthetic, as they’re great fans of bands like Dinosaur Jr and the Pixies, even having a song called ‘Kim Deal’ in their arsenal.

Sounds like: the Cribs or Peace, if they were from far north of the border.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiDEkoPKCkk[/youtube]

Peace – We won’t waste your time here, since the band have already been tipped on the BBC Sound of 2013 poll. Read our previous Peace coverage, including their 10 for 2013 profile (they placed #5 on this last readers’ poll), here.

Peers – 6music’s Tom Robinson was an early supporter of this Reading band in 2010, the year the young band, then all under the age of 18, played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds. The unsigned band cite Bombay Bicycle Club as a major influence, and if you squeeze your eyes real tight, you can hear Jack Steadman’s impact on singer Matt Thompson’s vocals.

Savages – dissonant post-punk via an unusual package – four women from London. Is it their anti-establishment stance that attracted the BBC Sound of 2013 tipsters? We’ll never know for sure but I guess imitating Patti Smith and looking sullen are the highest form of flattery? They could have at least smiled for the photos on their Facebook…

Sounds like: trying too hard to be a 21st century Siouxsie and the Banshees

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y-cVzbBBQ8[/youtube]

Sharks – usually punk is associated with a lo-fi, scuzzy sound, but this band from Leamington Spa sound remarkably polished, with hybrid punk/pop songs that could have easily slotted in with the music I listened here in America in high school.

Sound like: a grown up Blink-182, or Green Day when they weren’t so political and were still fun

Tall Ships – math rock meets indie rock in an epic way via three high-spirited lads from Brighton. John adored their 2012 opus ‘Everything Touching’ and for a Foals loving nation, it’s a wonder they aren’t bigger in the UK. Foals? Who are they?

Read our previous coverage on Tall Ships here.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JYt3eYDQY0[/youtube]

Tango in the Attic – Scottish band from Glenrothes having Two Door Cinema Club-type guitars with reverb.

File next to: Smith Westerns

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke9eHi6Ze_A[/youtube]

Throne – there’s not a lot known about this London band, except that they’re known to ‘level rooms’ with their bad boy riffage when they appear in the Capital. You have been warned.

TOY (added 10/01/13) – psychedelic rock from a band made up of some members for the group Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong. I don’t feel like it’s really necessary to write about them, considering nearly every friend of mine rates them quite highly. Not really my thing, but I’m pretty sure they will do well in Austin.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcQ2nXDvWDY[/youtube]

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls (added 10/01/13) – I nearly put Frank Turner’s band in the singer/songwriter category, but since his appearances at this year’s SXSW will be louder and more raucous than his solo turn last year at the Xtra Mile Recordings showcase, in the end there was no contest.

We’ve written quite about the man on TGTF, and you can read all of that through here.

Virals – vehicle for Worcester’s Shaun Hencher, who with his live band have most recently supported #5 10 for 2013 band Peace in the UK. Now Hencher’s looking to make a big splash at their American live debut at SXSW.

Sounds like: a cross between Male Bonding, Two Wounded Birds (RIP) and the Vaccines. Get yer sunnies out!

The Virginmarys – Macclesfield will soon be known for more than Ian Curtis, if this trio have anything to say about it. Their sound? Hard rocking, arse-kicking tunes.

File next to: Kasabian, Biffy Clyro

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8ehThdbXJs[/youtube]

Wet Nuns – even with quite possibly one of the silliest names for a band ever, Sheffield duo Wet Nuns had a spectacular 2012, getting attention not only for their silly name but their punk crossed with blues schizophrenic sound.

Sounds like: the evil child borne from Band of Skulls and the Black Keys

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAe5OFCuLxY[/youtube]

While She Sleeps – is heavy metal more your thing? Then I suppose you should look to Sheffield and a band like While She Sleeps for your jollies. Luke caught them last summer at day 2 of Slam Dunk South.

Young Guns – this band has been around for quite a while, but it wasn’t until summer 2012 that they had an American record deal. Radio-friendly, not too hard rock sound made by youngish, good-looking boys in leather: in short, an American label signing coup.

Read all our previous coverage of Young Guns here.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qk3vjIDuy9w[/youtube]

The Zombies – “What’s your name? / Who’s your daddy? / Is he rich like me?” All kidding aside, the Zombies have been around for over 50 years. Fifty effin’ years. They called themselves the Zombies before it was hip to like zombies. Though they’re down to only two original members – Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent – contrary to popular belief, it was they, not Friendly Fires, who put St. Albans on the musical map.

Read Braden’s interview with Colin and Rod from 2 years ago here.

Electronic bands and DJs are up next week. So catch us next Tuesday for the third chapter of the genre section of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013!

 

This Week’s Gonzo – Klaxons have a visit with Alexa

 
By on Friday, 29th October 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

On tonight’s episode of MTV Gonzo, Klaxons spend some quality time with host Alexa Chung and reveal to us some little-known facts. Take this quote from Jamie Reynolds (who also guested as a panelist for Lammo’s Roundtable yesterday evening): “We asked Charlotte Church if she’d sing with us, she said she didn’t know who we were and she had a boyfriend.” Ooh, snap!

O Children from Liverpool make an appearance, as does Andy Serkis…you know him better as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films and even more recently as Ian Dury in ‘Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll’. For a bit of a blast from the past, the recently reformed Suede provide you the viewers their ‘Greatest Hits for a Blagger’s Guide’, while London parody band the Midnight Beast boys point their fickle finger at ‘Pop Divas’. There’s even a performance by hotly-tipped Darwin Deez, playing his brilliant single ‘Constellations’. You won’t want to miss this episode of Gonzo.

Watch this week’s MTV Gonzo tonight at 7 pm on MTV Rocks, with a repeat at 9 pm on MTV.

 

Single Review: Klaxons – Twin Flames

 
By on Monday, 25th October 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

Klaxons‘ latest single, ‘Twin Flames’, is being released today. It’s the second single from ‘Surfing the Void’, following first single ‘Echoes’ (watch the video here) that was released in August. When I first heard ‘Echoes’, I found it very rough and screechy. This time around with ‘Twin Flames’, the feeling is more melodic and as some reviewers before me have pointed out already, ‘Twin Flames is significantly more radio-friendly.

It’s a love song all right, but how it conveys love is a more difficult thing to explain. From a lyrical standpoint, it’s words put deliciously together for the reader to comprehend however they want:

twin flames in our hearts
as we turn towards our very start
twin flames in our minds
when we move emotions multiply…
twin flames in our hearts
as we move you can’t tell us apart
twin flames in our minds
when we move together…

Quite lovely. I’m still not sold on Klaxons’ 2007 Mercury-Prize winning album ‘Myths of the New Future’, but perhaps ‘Surfing the Void’ deserves a listen if you haven’t heard it yet.

7.5/10

Klaxons are touring the UK in November; dates in Cambridge (17 November) and Oxford (18 November) have been added since our original post in late August and have been updated.
