Desertfest London 2015: eight more bands announced

Prepare yourself London, it's going to be dry and dusty in April as Desertfest rolls into town

Once again, Desertfest London fired a crushing salvo of heaviness by adding eight more kickass bands to their 2015 lineup. Floor, Karma To Burn

Steak- Slab City (Napalm Records)

A promising debut...
Release Date: 
4 Sep 2014 - 11:30pm

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but more often than not that idiom isn’t worth a lick of salt. Take this, Steak’s debut album, for example.

John Garcia on John Garcia...

Finally, after many years, we get a solo album...

John Garcia is wide awake and on the ball (well, running some lunch-time errands actually) but it’s 5:30am for me.

Jupiter Zeus - On Earth (Magnetic Eye Records)

Big. Bigger. Biggest...
Release Date: 
11 Mar 2014 - 12:30am

I almost dropped my sausage sandwich when I heard On Earth by Jupiter Zeus - and then when I found out these fellows are from Western Australia, I almost dropped it again.

Monster Magnet - Australian Tour 2014

Your Chance to win free tix to each night of the tour!
Tour Dates: 
03/04/2014 - 06/04/2014

Ahead of their upcoming Australian tour Monster Magnet have just named the full line up of local acts who will joining the space rock legends to blow minds across the country this

Vista Chino, Gay Paris, The Metro, Sydney, 28/01/2014

A mighty scoop of riffs and good times.

The Metro was sparsely filled when I arrived, which was hardly surprising. Sydney is an odd place to visit on a Tuesday night.

Cokegoat - Vessel (Economy of Motion Records)

Nothing to see here, folks...
Release Date: 
8 Nov 2013 (All day)

Cokegoat, huh? Picked a helluva name. And when the band press read that it was some form or another of “death-doom,” I was yet more intrigued.

Red Fang - Whales and Leeches (Relapse)

Beard-rock seems too harsh a term...

Red Fang have reached an unprecedented level of cachet in their relatively short existence.

Tombstoned - Tombstoned (Svart Records)

Do you like your stoner rock half-baked?
Release Date: 
14 Nov 2013 (All day)

What is this, some sorta joke? I suppose I did pick this one out just because, given the name of the band, the review practically writes itself.
