An early start following a late eneving getting back from the festival in Portsmouth. Straight to Kings Cross to head to The North. Arrived just in time to catch the majority of The Marmozets. As with their show in Brighton they put on a decent set. My late arrival meant we missed Baby Metal much to Kristina’s enjoyment.
Then we sat near the BBC introducing stage for an hour or two and caught some decent bands including Ducking Punches and Area 52. We also caught Crosa Rosa who singer was trying to be Kurt Cobain, they did have some great home made signs mind you.
Back on the main stage Royal Blood played, for me the performance of the day. Completely solid from start to finish.
Bring Me The Horizon. I just didn’t get it, at all. Circle pits and mental pointless crushed moshing for no apparent reason. The sound was also shite, the band even commenting on it at one point.
We saw a couple of songs from Ghost who seemed pretty decent. I don’t know much by them so will check them out in the coming days.
Metallica, were average. Nothing special at all. The encore was decent and on a par with other shows I’ve seen of theirs but the remainder of their set I felt was missing something.
