Ashestoangels supporting Fearless Vampire Killers and Dead - Cabin Fever Tour - Exeter - The Cavern.
Tonight’s show was at the Cavern in Exeter and this is venue I’ve heard much about but have never been to before either as a punter or on work. And I was immediately impressed.
It had a huge system (albeit completely unbranded from what I could tell) And it sounded great, although something in the arrangement meant that very little sub ended up being transferred to the room, and was sucked up in to the stage, (super sub on stage, almost nothing out front) but this wasn’t too much of an issue once the whole band was playing. Turn the amps up, hit the drums hard, and have fun.
The first band on were The Dead Betas, a crazy heavy party band, who are great fun to listen to, and super tight, and instead of having a second guitar they had a synth and it gave a slightly different dynamic to what you would normally expect.
Ashes were on second tonight and we got the changeover done and dusted pretty quickly. And just went full force in to the set. It was heavy, it was loud, and the crowd were pretty crazy. It just felt right. And with the house engineer, Elliot, jumping on the lighting board, it looked awesome as well.
Dead were the main support tonight, as they’re the tour support for FVK and this is possibly one of my favourite performances of theirs. The mix was great, their gear didn’t break and everything was super on form. Love watching this lot play.
And finally FVK finished the night. These guys bring something new every show and tonight was no different. Some awesome new songs, guitars and bass sounding huge and drums were on point, and loud. This was a really sweet set from the FVK boys, and the night finished on a massive high.
OH MY GOD WHY, WHY DO YOU DO THIS ON A SITE WITH 13 YEAR OLDS WHO WILL ACTUALLY TRY THIS, STOP
Little sister giving my mum a piggyback ride; she is never doing this to me!
Kathleen has super strength…if only she would use her powers for GOOD!
What do we sound like? A bit of an explosive, um, D-Danny Elfman diarrhoea music, I think, that splatters into many different genres. That’s how I’d describe it
They’re the true definition of punk rock. They all live in the same little flat in London. The two singers even sleep in the same bed because they just don’t have any money. They are fully committed to doing this band. It’s not about anything else in life except Fearless Vampire Killers, and that’s really rare, you know, to find people who care that much about their craft
A year ago today I was excitedly preparing for my 1st FVK gig little expecting the event to change my life. Looking like a hippo next to the utterly nommy Laurence Beveridge was one hideous photo too many. I knew I had to have one last go at doing something about it after many, many failures…
A year on I’m over 25% down and my girls are looking pretty trim too cos they don’t want me to catch up too much!
