Break The Habit @ The Windmill Brixton 11.04.10

Break The Habit @ The Windmill Brixton 11.04.10

OK ok it’s been a fair while since the eleventh of April but sometimes life gets busy and sometimes I get lazy!  But hopefully anticipation has built to a crescendo point and the server will explode as you download away.  Anyhow Break The Habit are four chaps from Brighton.  As well as being involved with many other bands past and present such as Fisticuffs, The Hotlines, Corrigan and Los Mendozas (or rumour has it) the band members also run This Ones For The Crew records/gigs and Nothing to Prove Records so they’re busy busy boys.
Sound wise they are undeniable (and unashamedly) influenced by Latterman and their ilk but there’s certainly a British touch to them not a million miles away from the likes of Shermer, Circus Act or their good buddies Bangers.
They’re also fairly prolific with three slabs of vinyl out (them being splits with Bangers, Spraynard and the upcoming split with Solutions/Cutting Class).  You can purchase all of these via their myspace but they have also made all of their recorded music available for free on the aforementioned site so get going (and then buy some beautiful vinyl!).
This gig was supporting the god damn amazing Bomb at the Windmill along with Southport, The Magnificent, Serf Combat and Question The Mark.  Check out my rambles about this gig and associated band in other entries.
So without further ado here’s the set list:
The Night Watch
Driving Home
Eerie, Indiana Ashdown
Risk Averse
”Clean Up In Aisle Wales, AMIRITE!”
Subtlety Has Never Been My Forte

Big City Plan @ Retro Bar Manchester 07.04.10

Big City Plan @ Retro Bar Manchester 07.04.10

Big City Plan are the new kids on the block of the Birmingham punk rock scene.  ‘Gifted’ with the voice and guitar (and not forgetting ability to attract screaming girls) of one Lewis (of Shermer fame) as well as Kev from RedCarpetRobots the band were off to a pretty good start from day one.  Now beefing their sound up with a second guitar, their Selly Oak via Gainsville sound of big gruff voices with big gritty guitars is doing wonders for blocked ears all across the Midlands.  This banter filled set is from when the band played with The Dauntless Elite and The Bomb (oh and Serf Combat) last week up in Manchester on the first date of the Bomb’s tour.  Good times were had by all.  You can also download their new demo totally from free via the band here

Set List:

Lewis assures me that they have no song titles so just right click and download the set from here and enjoy!
