Invasives - 101 Damnations @ The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds on 14th April 2012 (Part 1)

Hanson Brothers (Sudden Debt Tour) at The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds on 14th April 2012

WARNING!!!! This video includes a drunken hair related insult.

A welcome return from the legendary Canadian Wright brothers and Tom Holliston (Nomeansno)
Only 2 shows in the UK – After their killer last performance at the Brudenell as Nomeansno – the Wright brothers and Tom Holliston are coming back to the Brudenell to kick some serious arse with their Punk Rock alter ego’s, “THE HANSON BROTHERS” Ramones worshipping, Hockey crazed, High energy Puck Rock !!!!!!!!!

A trio from Vancouver BC formed in 2001 and consisting of 2 brothers Byron and Adam Slack (Vocals/Guitar/Bass) and 1 Hans Anus (Drums). The sound these fine “young” lads create is a stripped down Punk Rock devoid of cliches and Rock & Roll frippery. Super tight! Excellently crafted Punk Rock Songs! Your new favourite band.

Snotty, Anthemic, 77 worshipping Punk Rock/This dirty Rock & Roll band has more hooks than a Fishermans Tackle Box! Probably the best Punk band to come out of the UK in years. Check them out on Damaged Goods Records. Go see “Waiting for Nightfall” their new video on youtube.

Their sound has been compared to The Replacements, Billy Bragg, The Clash, Alkaline Trio and maybe someone being sick. If you are American, the music sounds English. If you are English, you have never heard of this band.

Leeds new Super Group playing their first gig at the Brudenell

At first Beards’ sound might point to freethinking post punks such as The Minutemen, Units or Delta 5 but the songs wrestle it out through the full gamut of noisy punk-disco, progressive time signatures, moments of majestic AOR, Post-hardcore angles and chaotic Beefheart-esque stomps, successively waylaying any ideas of progness or punkness along the way.
