Explosions In The Sky Cancelled, But Panther's Attack
Just came home from work to find out that both th Glasgow and Manchester Explosions In The Sky gigs have been cancelled, due to adverse weather conditions in the USA preventing the band getting a flight. I'd been looking forward to this for a while, so this was a real kick in the teeth.
This is what we'll be missing:
My disappointment has been tempered somewhat, by the arrival of a cd (in my mailbox) by a band with the excellent title of Panther Attack.
I'll admit to not knowing to much about this Seattle-based band. But, judging by the initial impressions of their "Martyr Bonus" CD, that will change in the coming days. The video above makes them look like a harder-edged Tortoise.
