Coachwhips are kicking the fuck out of the UK: eyewitness accounts here and here, and there's even an 8/10 album review in this week's NME. If you still haven't heard them, listen to 'Made A Bomb' here.
Ah, I think we forgot to say, but the opening band this Sunday (in the absence of Bristol's Steveless) will be the mighty Gindrinker, described thus: "Doom-metal guitar, improv coronet, and the liver-swollen bile of The Fall circa 'Hex Enduction Hour' takes shape in the hands of glowering Cardiff publicans". This will be their third gig. Come give it up.
