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.

Could party rockers Ugly Kid Joe and New Jersey scumbags Skid Row still pack a punch after all these years? Well, a sold-out crowd in Reading were left in no doubt as both bands smashed through hit-laden sets.
Tonight’s poor turnout could be due to the appalling weather conditions that rendered a good part of the UK house bound for six days, or it could be that the Reading metal crowd only make the effort to turn up when a name band comes to town, but whatever the reason, yet another show rolls through the town with little interest from the “scene kids”.
