I saw these two bands last night. Important things to note from the night out...
1. Go for a poop before you see these bands as their fans will fill up the cubicles in the gents by snorting coke.
2. Attack + defend do suck as much as I previously thought they did. Dom Gourlay was wrong in his review. They use it on their posters "Drowned in Sound 9/10". Their keyboard player is ok.
3. Neon plastic are competent but their style is just embarassingly eighties, their lead singer is clearly a twat, he seems like a fictional character. Still they can make an ok song so the deserved to be headliners over the pisspoor Attack + Defend.
