Off To See Clutch And Bombus – Awesome

It is incredible to think that 2016 sees the amazing Clutch celebrate their silver jubilee.  A quarter of a century with virtually the same line-up is an incredible achievement especially when you consider that their two most recent albums, Psychic Warfare and Earth Rocker are amongst their very best material to date.

Support tonight comes from the fantastic Bombus, a band I discovered this year at Download Festival.  The Metal quartet from Gothenburg Sweden were one of my finds of the festival, a great band in the tradition of the finest Scandinavian Metal bands.

I will also have the opportunity to discover a new band to me.  Greenleaf are another Scandinavian metal band also out of Sweden.  They have been around for about 15 years but they are new to me so that will be a treat.

To say I am excited for a greta night of hard rocking would be an understatement!

Check back for photographs etc tomorrow.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
