Fucking hell, this gig was amazing. The four bands were absolutely killer, the atmosphere was fantastic... I don't know if it could have been better. Cheers to everyone who came out and participated in the mayhem, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Massive thanks to all the bands too, most of whom who travelled a tremendous distance to play. A great bunch of guys all round who really love what they do and more importantly do it perfectly. I'd have any and all of them back at Reanimator anytime like a shot.
Sekhmet were a very good warm-up, I wasn't really sure what I was expecting from them as I hadn't bothered listening to them but they got the old juices flowing.
Gama Bomb...... what could you possibly say about them? Quite simply fucking fantastic. Great songs, great guys and a brilliant stage presence. I never stopped laughing at not being able to understand a word Philly was saying. I told him after that he sounded like Brad Pitt in Snatch!
Oppression ran Gama Bomb pretty damn close, they were so, so good. The singer had a sort of child-like exuberance that just seemed infectious. It infected me into buying a CD and shirt anyway.
SSS weren't really very 'me', I'll say. Went down well though. It was probably my favourite Reanimtor so far and you did yourselves proud again, guys!
I had a brilliant time last night, although my headache this morning is quite debilitating! I've got some good photos from last night - when I can sit at a computer for long enough without my eyes hurting I'll upload them.
Definitely up there on my list of favourite Reanimators!
