For the first time in years, the Wildhearts’ set was to feature Danny on bass once more during the encores, something that, naturally, had spiked interest in the fans and by the time the band arrived on stage, the crowd were chomping at the bit.
With this album OVERKILL prove once again that after 30 years they haven’t lost a single step. In fact, they seem to have gained a few. This just might be their best work since Necroshine, and yeah, you can quote me on that. White Devil Armory drops July 22 via eOne Music. Best when played LOUD!!
What a difference a day makes. So sang Renee Olstead in the classic song from yesteryear. The day before the inaugural Ramblin Man Fair, the heavens opened and it looked like it could all be a washout. Then, it’s rumoured, Klaus Meine steps forward, has a word with the powers that be, pointing out that Scorpions “don’t do rain” and the day they headline is an absolute dream. Hot sunny weather, the middle of a beautiful country park in the heart of Kent (The Garden of England), real ale on draught (Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale), a real ale tent and 3 stages containing the best that Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and Outlaw Country music have to offer.
