Those Damn Crows & Massive Wagons from Steelhouse Festival
Steelhouse Festival in South Wales couldn’t have been more unlucky with the weather this year. After the hottest UK summer in years the weather broke, and broke hard! Gale force winds and torrential rain were so bad that they threatened the running of the whole event.
Massive credit must be given to the organisers for battling the elements and keeping the Festival alive, and a special mention to all the hardy rock fans who hung in there to enjoy some great music.
Sundays schedule went out of the window due to weather delays and missing bands, but eventually the rain eased off enough for us to rock!
I was there to see two of Earache Records finest. First up were local band Those Damn Crows. Their goal? “To write great songs, play great shows and become another successful Welsh export”, and on this viewing they are doing just that. The weather wasn’t going to stop them from delivering a great set of hard rock that the soaked crowd loved and sang along to. Their debut album ‘Murder And The Motive’ is out in October and will be well worth a listen.
Next up were Lancaster rock outfit Massive Wagons. Again, despite the weather they played a great set led by their whirlwind of a frontman Baz Mills. New album ‘Full Nelson’ was released in August and charted in the Top 20, its great listen to it.
