Corby rock trio Skirt – Liam Finan, Alex Huxtable, and Leia Cameron – have an EP ‘Is It?’ out in a few days time, and today they share the video for one of the tracks, ‘Easy Tiger’. New Boots quizzed them, and here are the [cryptic] answers.

Who are Skirt?
3 best buds from Corby tryna do some special things

How did you get together?
Mad story actually

Tell us about the ‘Is It?’ EP, and the launch shows to accompany it.
It’s our baby. We love it. A fusion of all our preferences, no two tracks the same. Fast and loud when deemed appropriate. EP release weekend begins the 30th March with a hometown show followed by date in Kettering then finished with our biggest headline to date at The Cookie in Leicester. We’re bringing along Luna Rosa, King Purple, Fatmate, and Drinsipa plus others to support our release and we can’t wait because they’re obviously the best bands about, and it only seemed necessary to get the best. That and because we love ’em all.

You seem to work hard, playing plenty of live shows. Is that where the band come alive, the stage?
As much as we enjoy playing live, wouldn’t necessarily say it’s where we come alive. Would like to say we share that quality when it comes to writing and recording

How ‘Sarcastic’ exactly are Skirt?
It’s just a song we have x

How does Corby inspire you?
Inspires us to get the fuck out

What’s the last album you bought/streamed?
The Garden’s new records are wicked

What’s the plan now for the rest of the year?
Wear skirts and write songs

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….

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.
