Belfast legends Slomatics are hitting Glasgow once again. Bringing new meaning to the term ‘heavy’ since 2004, their catalogue includes the unholy trilogy of A Hocht, Estron and Future Echo Returns. David, Chris and Marty are currently working on a new album to follow last year’s acclaimed Totems collaboration with Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard. Absolutely crushing live and with a load of new songs - you don’t want to miss this.
Glasgow’s own psychedelic doom lords Headless Kross add to this killer line up. Formed in 2011, they’ve been bringing us monolithic slabs since the release of Bear. Their new album Projections II is almost ready to roll - this is the second part of this trilogy. On the Desertfest London line-up and supporting Bong in Glasgow in May, they are also playing Kozfest in July. Grab the chance to see them any time you can - you won’t regret it.
Reformed for one gig only – the mighty El Bastardo from Cork City. Formed in 2002, they released the split single Died at 30, Buried at 60 with Slomatics in 2005 and the album Versus You (aka Chinese Democracy MK II) in 2010. Rising from the slightly alcohol tinged ashes for one night of carnage.
