Wildhearts/Groop Dogdrill @ The Junction, Cambridge
The canine openers stole this show without a doubt. The Wildhearts,
despite showing excellent judgement of distortion on their new
material--making it just the right side of unlistenable--appeared to
have 4 drummers and no ears this evening. There's no two ways about
it, they just sounded shit, apart from around 30 seconds when the
sound cleared up and suddenly 3 of the drumkits transformed into lead,
rhythm and bass guitars, before the quicksand acoustics gobbled them
back up. We left.
We stayed for Groop Dogdrill though and what a good decision it was;
sweat-drenched and splenetic blues-based hellfire galore. Obvious
reference points are John Spencer and Quadrajets but they're worthy of
a pigeohole all of their own, get out and see 'em now. There's a new
single in September.
