Neds, Twist and The Darkness ALL ROCKED...

Neds Atomic Dustbin was FANTASTIC on Saturday... I really wasn't sure what to expect, but it was cracking. Predictable crowd of late twenties / early 30s aged indie kids, and nearly all male too, but it kicked off right away, and kept going until they'd played everything, ever.

Support came from Twist, a pleasant surprise, they are an ace Brummie all girl 4 piece, and they ROCK OUT and are to be highly recommended.

To complete my evening of ROCK we raced up to the Barfly in time to catch The Darkness - without doubt the best unsigned band around.

I replicated this content here when popex finally shut down in the early '00s. Hopefully this ignites memories (if you find it).
