The Skinny: Finnish ghoul metallers, Lordi, brought their live show to the intimate confines of Sub 89 in Reading recently as part of a full UK tour. Our photographer was on hand to bring you this selection of shots which proved the band were very much more than just a one-hit wonder.

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.
