The Skinny: Californian nu-metal stars Alien Ant Farm opened up a three band bill alongside P.O.D and Hoobastank and, as our photographer found out, it felt like they’d never been away. Yes, they were older but they were still as goofy and put a smile on the face of every punter in this sold-out venue in Reading. Check out a few shots from their set here.


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.
