The Skinny: Last time Cancer Bats came to Reading they were playing in a tent in a field to 10,000 people. This time the venue is lot more intimate, even hotter and certainly more suited to the chaotic thrash-punk of the Canadian outfit who manage to turn a sold-out venue into one big pit despite attempts to put a halt to the carnage by the venue’s over zealous security.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
