The Masonics. Calling Antwerp!
The likelihood of anyone a) Being into the Masonics (except Dave SKooter Farm) or b) Being in Antwerp, Belgium in three days time is minimal, but you never know. If you are go and see this band. They're brilliant. A three-piece made up of British garage punk royalty. The lead singer is the hardest looking ever. Forget Slipknot or Metallica or any of those others chimps. Without trying Mick Hampshire leaches an air of East End violence. And he used to be in the Milkshakes. John Gibbs on bass is equally menacing. Bruce on drums lets the side down by being a great confused uncle of a smiley bloke. Fantastic drummer though.
