Gigs in Guildford / SW Surrey / NE Hants July 1st 2018 onwards

June 30, 2018

This updated and expanded UBER-MEGA gig list is stuff that gets the Wild Eye seal of approval, especially if the band or promoter are in bold.

If you look to your right you should see a page marked “Gig Listings on the Net A to Z” where I have linked a couple of local Facebook listings pages that will tell you about even more stuff.

Let me know what I am missing.  Don’t let me know that Reading is not in Surrey or Hants.

Oh yeah… always worth checking out the Boileroom and Aldershot West End Centre websites as well, and what Chris at Jasta 11 is up to – links to right!  And the Holroyd Arms which is putting on more and more good looking shows.

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

July 21, 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.
