Discharge Delight The London Faithful

Metal owes a lot to punk rock, some bands moreso than others. At the top of the list must surely be Discharge, the punks from Stoke On Trent who have had their music covered by such bands as Metallica, Sepultura, Anthrax and Machine Head to name a few. It's surprising then that for a band as legendary as this, the turnout in London was quite disappointing. Despite this and the absence of bassist Royston "Rainy" Wainwright, the band made sure that all that did attend went home happy.

Opening the show was The Migraines, based in both Bristol and London. The band is very much what one would think of when it comes to punk bands, minus the Mohawks, in that they have some solid music but are very loose and non-nonchalant about things. They're a good laugh at first but the novelty of their simple lyrics wears off pretty quickly, there's only so many bands that can sing songs about weed before it becomes very stale.
