Crud World Domination Enterprises give you
(review n pix by neil crud)
Bands must look at the calendar and think that the gig they booked with all that enthusiasm for a Wednesday night in Rhyl in November wasn’t perhaps such a good idea. So they’ll call with an excuse from The Caves book of excuses; page 34 says: ‘The drummer’s wife has given birth to an okapi so we can’t make it.’
Defenestration and Mendes both cried wolf and left Carpet to fill the void.
Y’see, when I were a lad a gig was a gig and just to find anywhere to play was a feat in itself amidst a quagmire of poodle rock shite pub rock bands playing awful Led Zep and Hendrix covers. Nowadays bands even as extreme as Gape, with their brain rattling distortion can pick ‘n’ choose where they play and when to.
I’ve been playing Carpet on myshow these last couple of weeks and they’re ace! It’s a demo they did a couple of years ago and The Secretary unearthed it. They only played one song off it tonight as musically this is a band that constantly moves, its just a pity they don’t seem to do it out of Rhyl that often.
