TOMBSTONE ALL-DAYER

11 PARANOIAS

THE STAR & GARTER, MANCHESTER

STAGEFRIGHT

EDITED BY KEZ WHELAN

Seeing as we arrive slightly too late to catch Conjurer opening up the proceedings (though we’re sure they were as ace as they usually are), it’s up to Wigan trio Mower to prime our eardrums for the tinnitus inducing day that lies ahead, and their meaty, fuzzed-out sludge is more than up to the task. Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard prove themselves to be more than just the worst (or perhaps best?) band name ever, with some pretty hypnotic, glacially paced riffs. It’s just a shame that persistent microphone problems render Jessica Ball’s entrancing vocals, arguably the most sonically interesting aspect of the band, inaudible for the majority of the set. Thankfully all the sound issues seem to have been cleared up by the time Ten Foot Wizard hit the stage, and the band’s vibrant Southern swagger is infectious, eliciting widespread boogieing from the crowd.

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are certain times in history that will always remain special in your heart throughout your life. People often talk about the first time they have seen a certain band and I am no exception. It’s been a blessing to have had the opportunity to see so many bands in my life and, if pushed, I could recount many. After a number of false starts to actually see Neurosis in a live setting, I remember finally getting the chance to see them for the first time at Dudley JB’s with Today Is The Day (featuring Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon) and Voivod (with Eric Forrest). The hall was cavernous, certainly not overly busy in terms of punters, and yet the sonics that blasted through the speakers that night could not have sounded any more apocalyptic. Truly jawdropping and, frankly, life-changing. I know I am not the only one who has experienced similar and for that reason, it is a pleasure to celebrate Neurosis’ 30th anniversary with a cover feature that covers the band’s continuing career. José Carlos Santos has excelled himself as always in producing a fantastic article with Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till and I truly hope you love reading it. Elsewhere it’s always a pleasure to chat to Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower and now of his new band Memoriam – please flick to the news pages to read about the new band now! And of course, plenty of other cool-as-fuck bands to read about and enjoy. See you next month! Adios DARREN SADLER
