Blacklisters. The name reminds me that I can’t show my mug in a couple of clubs in Sheffield (it wasn’t my fault). It also reminds me that you can have a sense of humour (although a bit sordid, but that’s cool) while rocking out and scaring a few vicars.
This band consists of Billy Mason Wood (vocals), Dan Beesley (guitar), Owen Griffits (bass) and Alistair Stobbart (drums). We know for a fact that Sheffield (alabama) own Wet Nuns like these fellas, which is already a guarantee of rockness. Add to this the fact that they have just signed with Brew Records and opened for Melt Banana (yeah!) and Rolo Tomassi (fuck yeah!) .
Here’s ‘Swords’, you guys. While you listen to Owen do some cool bass shenanigans, you can check our review of their split 10″ EP (with fellow rockers Castrovalva, Dolphin and Hawk Eyes).
