JAG - Sorry!
A show for Brickface Press (Liverpool based art/hxc zine)
CASTROVALVA (Leeds // Brew Records // http://www.myspace.com/castrovalvamusic )
Driving rock two piece all the way from sunny Leeds. Imagine the bass lead dirge of Death From Above, mixed with the Off-Kilter ticklings of say, Shellacs more straight forward moments and you're on the right track. It's impossible not to mention Lightning Bolt as well, but Castrovalva contain something far more potent in their delivery. Less artistic musings, and more balls to the wall, heads against the floor rock, these guys will bring you to your knees, before crumbling your puny venue to the ground...
MT. (Bristol // Motive Sounds Recordings // http://www.myspace.com/lifeandtimesofmt )
There are tonnes of bands that do the whole Mogwai / Do Make Say Think / Explosions In The Sky thing... but these guys do it properly, and make it their own. Gorgeous guitar patterns loop through the reverberent drums, to build up from subtle melodies into crashing, thunderous conclusions. Most bands are about the music their playing. Mt., are also about the intensity of which they're delivering it...
A three piece, Mt. are on the near legendary Motive Sounds Recordings and have released and toured enough to make any other band weep. With a live reputation the preceeds them up & down the country, they're certainly not ones to be missed...
