Saturday 24: Pata de Perro (Sheffield Alabama Death March).
Day started out nicely with the Bromheads‘ flashmob in front of the Student Union of the University of Sheffield. A sparse but eager crowd was there, told by organisers that as soon as the band started playing, they had to freeze in position, with poses as silly as they could muster to keep for 2 minutes.
The song played was ‘Friends’ (the very one they played when they got chased out of the City Library twice in April). Afterwards it was time to take the Busker Bus, which arrived not late not early, but exactly when it was expected to arrive. After cramming everyone inside, the band haphazardly started to play ‘Friends’ again.
Dinosaur Pile-Up – The most powerful EP in the universe
The skinny: Some fuckin’ excellent grunge from Leeds.
The review proper: Who cares if grunge seems to be extinct? We’re due for a revival! And hopefully part of this attack of the Seattle flannel ‘n’ sardonic voice combo will include Dinosaur Pile-Up (no relation to Jim Yoshii Pile-Up), a band from Leeds who laid this short and sweet EP unto the unsuspecting public.
