Hear this tale of yore, grasshoppers, and younglings Of ninjas, fighters, and spiritual distortion guides Who jumped into scene one day, as the manatee spoke Three warriors, like peppers, they came up fierce Three songs, a trifecta, through hearts they pierce Cobra vs Man, Cobra vs Heart, Cobra vs Shaaaaark. Pint-sized ninjas who fought a style not many took In the city of broken Steel … Continue reading 30 days, 30 bands – #21 Cobra-Fist
Picture this: a small cramped practise room in the heart of (well, near one of the football stadiums, dunno which team). 6 musicians, all from very different backgrounds.

One of them introduces himself as Myth and we thought it was a good idea to interview them… Continue reading “Interview : Cobra-fist”
Don’t you hate it when you’re chillaxing and then a stupid shark comes around and steals your girlfriend and you have to fight his minions with uppercuts, elbows-to-the-face and spinning hurricane kicks? And once you defeat it, you have to fight your bro to the death? No, wait, that’s Double Dragon. But might as well make a comparison with a beat-em-up, as the music of … Continue reading Wake up to Cobra Fist
Peace in the Park 2011 was held at the Ponderosa park in Sheffield. The free event included many a local act, with volunteers asking for money for a wide variety of charities.
