This week's "Intense band I've just discovered" of the week prize must go to the crazy two-piece called...
Lightning Bolt. Here's an MP3 of one of the tracks that captured my attention. It has a bit of melody in it. You see - they are intense, frenetic intense drumming, gargled huge distorted bass. They're like Big Business - only more so... and another two-piece I saw supporting Boris last year and in the Meze in Newport a few months ago - can't think of their name.. Bristol band...
Anyway, back to Lightning Bolt........ here's some music of theirs. Just press the blue arrow to "stream" or download and save the file itself.
Lightning Bolt - "30,000 Monkies"
PS If you click the album photo above you'll go to their Last FM page and you'll see a youtube video of them live. Looks like great fun!!

Wow. It's all I can say about this guy. I downloaded this album and listened to it until I could no more. And then I started again. Something is bringing me back to this music - this beautiful music, this music that aches with emotion - and I want to play it to all my friends - all my friends no matter what style of music they're in to - they will love this - I know cos I've already played it to everyone I can. It seems like just guitar and vocal at first. But there's loads more going on. You need to read the lyrics to really know the level of emotion in this music. I can't cry anymore..
