- The Attik, Leicester
Blisterhead headlined a post Christmas punk gig at The Attik to awesome
effect. The band are a 4 piece from Sweden and play high-energy sing-along
punk rock. Their music combines the tunes of The Ramones with the attack
of Rancid. If you arent familiar with one or both of those bands
they are high speed, loud and pack their songs with football-chant style
choruses. Just what you need to shake off the Christmas lethargy!
The pace never stops. From the first notes opener On Parole,
through a high speed Joe Strummer tribute (reaction madness!) I
Fought the Law to B-boys Bop Sweat pours from the glass
and walls of this tiny 70 capacity venue. High much fun with your clothes
Visually them turn out in uniform tonight red bowling style shirts.
This was in fact Blisterheads first UK gig and is part of a tour.
Hopefully they will return and if and when they do, you must catch them.
Preferably somewhere small.
Punk at its roots, at its best.
