|Ok, so I haven't written anything here for a week. Not because I've been lazy (no way, José!) but because there haven't been anything really interesting to write about. The Swedish UK invasion seems to have taken a bit of holiday! Now things are starting to happen again (phew!). Sweden's best (currently operating) rock band are coming to London for a couple of shows. I'm of course talking about Sounds Like Violence! Sounds Like Violence consist of 3/4 the same members as the migty Niccokick (who I wrote about here), but have a heavier and more punk-like sound. I remember buying the first SLV EP "The Pistol" that came out on Deep Elm in 2004 and loving it like crazy, but then I had to wait bloody 3 years for the album to come out! Argh! Fortunately it looks like the wait for the new album won't be that long. Oh yeah, last year's album "With blood on my hands" was great, but it somehow disappeared and SLV didn't become the behemoths of rock that they deserved to be. I would strongly urge you to see them when they come over in October, because when I saw them at Borderline last time around they were here, it was so good I almost wept.
