insectthumbIn the upstairs room of a trendy Cardiff bar is not where you expect to find a grindcore gig, but once you weave your way through the beautiful people and venture through the secret door on the left you'll find a damn good little venue, which will most likely have the honour of hosting the first and probably last Insect Warfare gig in Wales.

Masters_ThmbThings were looking pretty ominous leading us to this show, I'd just seen Jesus on Oxford Street (well actor Joseph Mawle anyway), been drenched en route in some biblical proportion rainstorm and now people are talking in the queue outside the Garage like we are about to witness a second coming.

LH_tmbIt's like the nineties never happened in Swansea's Sin City tonight.   I'm waiting for a four-band sleaze rawk show to start and that's Jay Pepper from Tigertailz stood just yards way. Jesus I'm starting to doubt if Britpop ever really happened here.  Then the harsh realisation that this was in fact a gig celebrating Love Hate's twentieth anniversary of their seminal 'Blackout in the Red Room' sent me back down to earth with an age defining bump.
