My camera is bust, so a helpful friend loaned me some equipment as I’ve been without a decent digital camera for a couple of months now and didn’t want to miss out on taking photos at another gig.
Hot Mass (below) are a new local favourite with hazy distorted surfy guitars, gruff vocals and galloping beats. I’m really looking forward to seeing them play again at The Deadpunk Special in May. I like The Cut Ups more and more every time I see them and I’m hoping to get a photo of their lovely faces next time they play in this neck of the woods.
So, pretty gutted Bangers (above) are tbc on whether they are going to be playing any shows for a while. They have been a solid addition to the UK punk scene for years, with great song writing that evolves with every release. They played a strong set and everybody cheered and chanted for more. I hope we get at least a couple more shows from them in the future.
This show encapsulated our local punk scene, attending these shows highlight how much people work together to keep it all going. Thank you DIY Cardiff for hosting another awesome line up giving us something special to do at the weekend.
