Killing for Company
The Thekla, Bristol - June 12th
Entry: £7 adv
The new anthemic rock band from ex-stereophonic Stuart Cable, playing major festivals this summer, including Download, and The Who at Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
Stuart says "The music is different to what I did with the Stereophonics. It's heavy but really anthemic. I can’t wait to get back up there and thrash those drums!”
Loci wield music writhing with energy and intent. Aggressive alternative rock offset by dreamy shoegazing; a sound that ambushes the listener with both brute force and siren-like seduction. This is music with edge, with dark intelligence and a sarcastic smile.
Four social misfits realized their only chance of integrating into normal society would be to form an unstoppable, grooverama, metal fest of a band – then, and only then, would they be accepted…. Their maddog image portrays their inbred, redneck characters to perfection – their lyrics reflect their no-nonsense attitude and their chunky, groovy, metal riffs can rip your head off from 20 paces!
