Kerbdog, Kilkenny's finest metal exports (actually there only ones!) are playing at the Spring and Airbrake on 28th December. Hilariously Wonderland Promotions say they are: 'a heavy metal band from Kilkenny in southern Ireland. Their music has been described as "an unbending alloy of matt-black, titanium-tough metal and shimmering melody.", in contrast to compatriots U2s "fake authenticity" and the "tyranny of soul" espoused by Van Morrison".' Fuck sake guys wind yer necks in!
Also announced is Fightstar (26th March also in the Spring and Airbrake). Wonderland says: "Fightstar have a wealth of decent tunes up their collective sleeves, and come across sounding like Biffy Clyro meets Thursday, rather than Good Charlotte" - Rock Sound... "genuinely impressive slabs of intelligent and passionate heavy rock" - The Daily Star." They fail to mention that Fighstar is Charlie from Busted with a few mates trying desperately to gain credibility and an eyebrow razor.
