Who Saw The Light – Electric Theatre, Guildford, ACM Showcase, 21st July 2017

I like all sorts of music, but I really like heavy music, I really like psychedelic music, and I really really like heavy psychedelic music.  Who Saw The Light could actually be made for me.

They start their set with a properly fucked up version of Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues.  If you don’t know the original put down this blog and go listen to everything McLusky and Future Of The Left have ever done, then come back.

Right, you ready to continue?  Why anyone would consider covering a song so fucking perfect I just do not know.  They get away with it and MORE.  Excellent start.

They scream / growl, there’s metal, there’s hardcore, they get laid back and croon, they play extended pieces which go mathy and trippy and prog as well as psychedelic.  They do it with showmanship, humility, a sense of humour and, most importantly, remembering that it’s all rock n roll.

Fuck YEAH, superb, superb band.

They rock, they fuck with my mind and they put a smile on my face.  Really couldn’t ask for much more.

And Stef almost gave a speech.

All that in 20 minutes.

Who Saw The Light Play the Boileroom in Guildford Sunday 23rd July 2017 and release an ep on the day.
