Raging Speedhorn reunite original line-up for 20th anniversary show

Corby band Raging Speedhorn have announced that they will be regrouping with their original line up on October 6th for a one-off reunion show at the Electric Ballroom in London.

The news comes following on from a successful comeback started in 2014. Since their reformation, the band have tour nationally and internationally, racking up appearances at every major metal festival in the UK and released the comeback album Lost Ritual in 2016. The band see this reunion as a celebration of their twenty-year career. Drummer Gordon Morison had this to say:

“Really happy to announce that we will be celebrating 20years years or Raging Speedhorn on October 6th at the amazing electric ballroom in London with the original band this will never happen again so if you want to see us smash London go get your tickets now.”

Guitarist Gaz Smith, who left the band in 2008, will be returning with original guitarist Tony Loughlin and bassist Darren Smith. Gaz had this to say on the show:

“Starting Raging Speedhorn with the guys twenty years ago changed my life completely. It was and still is a huge part of me. I’ve never really been one for going back, as far as playing music goes, but to celebrate the twentieth anniversary with a special, absolutely one-off show was just too fun a thing to turn down. It’s going to be amazing. I can’t wait!”

Support is set to come from NOLA legends Crowbar, returning sludge demons Charger and Northants noiseniks Scurge. Jim Palmer, guitarist for both Charger and Speedhorn’s current line-up, commented:

“We’re excited to be able to bring the Fuzzbastard that is Charger to this show. It’s gonna be a mega celebration of times gone by and I for one am looking forward to reliving all those memories for one night. We may even have a surprise to reveal for our lineup. Volume over talent!”

The band recenrtly signed with Undergroove Records, and a new 7” is set for release later this year. The band are currently hard at work on their follow up to Lost Ritual.

Rocked Up has today revealed the first acts which will play its Hootenanny at Rockingham Motor Speedway this summer.

The promoters held an official launch night for the event at The White Hart in Corby last week and have now announced Essex alt rockers InMe, jazz hip-hop trio Flamer Griller and Corby’s King Purple as the first acts which will be playing.

In a career spanning more than 20 years, InMe have toured the world, released six albums, played on some of the biggest festival stages in the UK and supported the likes of Deftones and Biffy Clyro. They are due to release a new album this year.

InMe will be main support of the Rocked Up main stage. King Purple will be playing the YUK tent and Flame Griller – which features vocalists and producers ExP, JND and Addverse – the hip-hop stage.

Flame Griller sold out The Hut in 2016. They have released two albums and have been championed by the likes of DJ Format, Frankie Boyle and DJ Yoda.

Corby rising stars King Purple have previously supported the likes of Dream Wife, Husky Loops and Jordan Allen. They are currently working on new material.

More than 100 people brought early bird tickets in the first weekend they went on sale. They are available now via www.crowdfunder.co.uk/rocked-up-hootenanny-2018 until March 1.

There will also be an extreme sports area in conjunction with Adrenaline Alley and BBC Introducing in Northampton will also be hosting and filming acoustic sessions in its tent.

Rocked Up are expected to announce more of the line up in the coming weeks and months.

You can check out InMe’s 2015 video to Amnesty: Bonsai Forest below.

New Music Friday: Sharkteeth Grinder

The hardcore game is strong across our county, and it doesn’t come any less intense than Corby quartet Sharkteeth Grinder. They – Bobbo Haldane on vocals, Jonny Lewis on guitar, Ross Davison on bass, and David Hoile on drums – begin the year by releasing the feral and furious Volume II EP. Mixed and mastered by Jay Russell at Parlour Studios, it contains four songs of righteous rage to split your speakers apart. New Boots spoke to Haldane for the lowdown on the daily Grind.

How/why did you guys get together to do Sharkteeth Grinder?
Sharkteeth Grinder started out of pure boredom and a passion for touring. Myself, David, and Ross decided we wanted to start a band, so we got a couple of riffs together, found Jonny and Sharkteeth was born. We aren’t in this to try and make it big or to fake our way through the industry, we like to do things real and our way. We enjoy playing shows and we enjoy touring, that’s why we do it really and we won’t stop.

How would you describe your sound for the hard of attention?
Aggressive and mental.

How has the ride been so far: smooth and mercurial, chaotic and hellish…?
It’s never been hellish. That’s one thing with us, we’re all pretty close mates. Don’t get me wrong there has been ups and downs, but only when we’re skint and starving, sat somewhere waiting for load in. It’s been smooth and chaotic.

Why this EP? Do they represent where you’re at right now in any way?
Yes they do represent where we are at right now and we believe we’re a hard working touring band who do literally live on the breadline. Money has been a struggle, meaning we weren’t able to release Volume II last year. The hunger for touring cost us quite a bit of money so it’s been tough, but we have achieved a lot in the past year and have played a lot of shows. We believe releasing Volume II sets us up perfectly for a busy year a head.

What influences what you sing about? Is ‘Scandal’ really about the BBC and the Tories?
Society is fucked up and we like to highlight that through our music. ‘Scandal’ is a prime example of how fucked up this world is. The song is pretty much based on the BBC’s cover ups with Jimmy Saville and other sex scandals that have came out of that hell. The only good thing about the BBC is music, everything else is just bullshit. All of our tracks are based on how shit the Tories have made our lives, because they really don’t care about the common people like you and me. Any establishment/government that puts rich people ahead of the poor and in need should be slung out.

The Great Dictator: black comedy genius from Chaplin with a big message. Why has it particularly struck a chord with you?
Charlie Chaplin was a genius and the message he gives in that speech is pretty much everything we stand for. Also we’re massive fans of a band called The Chariot they’re pretty much our idols and it’s a thank you to their art. They released a track called ‘Cheek’ from the album One Wing which features the whole speech so we just thought stuff it and asked our good friend Jay Russell to make the intro for us.

Give us a quick synopsis of this Corby scene that makes you tick.
For our style of music there isn’t really a scene for it and it has been a struggle getting locals who aren’t friends on our side. But Corby is a thriving scene for other genres and is leading the way compared to some city’s and town’s across the country. Everything Marc Collins has done for Corby’s music scene has been from the heart and he’s got it to where it is today.

What is the best thing about being in this band?
I speak for the whole band when I say this, but touring is the best thing about being in a band. Honestly it’s the best days of your life no matter what anyone says, waking up with your best mates everyday travelling from place to place getting stoned and steaming then playing a gig. My advice to all the local bands that haven’t gone and done it yet is, get off your arse and get out there! You will not regret it, trust me.

Can we have an album please?
Yes, over the next 3/4 months we will be writing our debut 10 track LP.

What’s coming up on the horizon?
We will be touring pretty much every month other than February and October by the looks of things. Also we will be crossing over to Europe for two tours this year in April and then November, so please keep an eye out on all our social media’s to see when we’re close to you and if we are, get to a show.

Volume II is out Monday through the band’s own label/distro Grinder Records on all streaming platforms, 7” vinyl and CD [Haldane: “also if anyone wants to start their own record label, we encourage that idea and will give you the masters of Volume I and Volume II to help get you on your feet”].
