500 mile weekend for Resin
What a hectic weekend it’s been for Resin, 500 miles added to the gig miles for this year. Saturday night was at The Snooty Fox in Wakefield, what an awesome venue! Band TShirts from all the bands that have played there lined the walls a celling, awesome sound man and who made us sound amazing, 6 camera video of the whole gig (he forgot to press record because he was enjoying us so much lol, next time we will sort a DVD out!).
Opening up was local lad and the first every follower of Resin on Soundcloud – Dyl McPrice. Dyl put on an awesome solo acoustic guitar set, the dude has an awesome voice. Next up was us, the stage was pretty large which suits us fine, and Mark looked like he was in Iron Maiden with the light rig arching over him. After us was the second gig for Screaming Life, friends of ours who are a Soundgarden tribute band. Although they didn’t rate there own performance we loved it!
The Snooty Fox is an awesome venue, and we can’t wait to come back!
After a short amount of sleep it was down south to London village to play Water Rats near Kings Cross. A venue with lots of character, and probably the best sound we’ve had in London so far. I didn’t catch the name of the opening band, but they were fun to watch, and had lots of energy. Next we played and gave our all, especially for Mareike Wunderlich who she says is our biggest fan, and paid us the compliment of being the best UK grunge band she has seen in 10 years! – Cheers!
Next up was Death Valley Knights who shreadded the place to bits with their thrash anthems. The last band seemed too pissed to stand up, and hadden’t bothered to watch the other bands, so we went home for some rest, after stopping at the UK’s worst service station where everything was shut, and you couldn’t buy a coffee or the pointless crap you can usually buy in a service station.
Here is a video of Poison from the Water Rats gig – enjoy!
