Roadkill July 3rd

Heavy Leather Promotions proudly presents ROADKILL, your monthly dose of Grindhouse Grooves, Leather Clad Licks and Roadhouse Rock. This month we’re showcasing some of the best stoner, doom and grunge that the London live music scene has to offer, it’s gonna get awful heavy.

“London’s best and only 100% pure garage night.” – Time Out London

With headliners Cold in Berlin
Powerhouse London doomsters are long time collaborators of Heavy Leather, but we’re welcoming them to their first ever Roadkill headline on July 3rd. Blisteringly distorted guitars and thunderous drums provide a dark backdrop to awesome gothic vocals. They’ve just released their third album on Candlelight Records to critical acclaim and they’ll be taking charge of Aces basement to show us how it’s done.

With support from Sewer Rats
Heavy Leather favourites and newest signing to FLUFFER RECORDS, Grimsby based Sewer Rats continue to blow us away at every show. Stoner jams and fast, overdriven blues with stomping beats. Heavy grooves, classic riffs and twisted, psychedelic rock n’ roll with vocals to match Lemmy himself.

And special guests Deathbeams
These guys massively impressed last November when they first played Roadkill, Deathbeams infuse hard-as-hell rock with otherworldly vocal crooning and smother it all in layers of guitar feedback and 90s grunge dirge. Not to be missed.

With very special guest DJ sets from our partners in crime – RAW MEAT.

Respect for Artists

Last night I found it quite appalling how we treat our Musicians in this country for the second time in a row, patrons talked loudly over the artists on stage, if you want to go out to just talk go to the pub. In the states people respect their artists, one artist on stage started saying anything she wanted no one took the blindest bit of notice I went up and spoke to her afterwards and she was used to it over here.

Last time one artist yelled shut up at these two women shouting loudly next to the stage, several of us joined in and they moved. it’s not rite!

Trouble is though it’s the same with any art form, people just think it’s theirs just to take, it’s like photography, respect for the craft and skill has all but completely dissipated, my mentor summed it up.
” Lots of people take great shots, but they have no idea why or how, when they true to recreate it they don’t understand why they can not do it “
