Not for me! I think they thought they were playing Download rather than Cropredy. I have a very varied taste in music and do like metal but this was just a poor grungy grind with so-called ‘shock’ lyrics being laughable rather than shocking. And what was it with the face paint? Were they 6 year olds? Whilst I winced but companion loved it. She was delighted by the antics whilst I just cringed. Will not bother with this in the future
Surely the face paint was a nod to the full clown makeup he donned in The SAHB

I get that but that was then, in a different (better) band and in a different time

I've already got tickets for Rammstein next year, so it's not that I don't like the style of music.


Elvana are an Elvis impersonator doing a Nirvana tribute set......it has to be seen to be believed, i've seen them this this year.  took me a while to get my head around it, i didn't know whether to laugh or cry but they are tight and somehow pull it off!

sounds like The King

I think there was a terrible booking error/mixup here - my understanding is that a electro acoustic 5 piece folk band called Slim Dogs ended up playing on the main stage Bloodstock which caused an equal degree of confusion as was caused here.  Slim Dogs have however been reported missing and there is some concern that they were ritually sacrificed and eaten by the audience after they finished!

Whatever the reason the reaction round me was amusing to watch - some of the middle class mums in particular were very concerned about some of the potty mouth language  Grin For me this was the low point of the weekend musically but I did manage to prove you can doze through one dimensional thrash metal with sufficient will power and the aid of a few pints of 6X.

I did send pics to my chums at Bloodstock, hoping to lure them down with me next year with some false advertising  Wink

I wanted to enjoy these guys, but just couldn't. Very impressed by the chaps around me who were sleeping/reading/sudoku-ing. I tried to stick it out in the hopes it would improve, but in the end just felt like I should have gone off for a wander.

For me it was about the songs. You can paint your face if you like, hang a skull off your guitar, all that stuff, but if your songs don’t grab me, if they all sound pretty generic, then it’s not for me.

Not fair, and lets agree that here at Talkawhile is mostly folkies, but I thought they were a breath of fresh air, and didn't take themselves or the event seriously.(Language aside which was a shame) Our group of chums had mixed reactions, but overall I liked their set, and put a smile on a few faces.

Yep, thats pretty much how I felt, the bad language was unnecessary,  but the music and musicianship was great! And I certainly wasn't going to fall asleep while they were on !  Cool

Didn’t mind them eventually, but I am an old punk, metal fan!
However I did spend a lot of the time worrying about the occasional language and how Peggy thought they would be a (natural) hit at Cropredy.

Maybe they were in other parts of the arena, but not around me.

However I do think you need the Saturday afternoon thug slot😀
