BE A BODY FESTIVAL: LOOM
Be A Body Festival heads to The Shackewell Arms, with a line-up which has come to slaughter with headliners Loom.
Formed through a shared distaste, boredom, and frustration with new music. Loom showcased their most prominent initial influences via a six-track covers EP of The Jesus Lizard, Bad Brains, Pixies, GG Allin, Misfits, and Warsaw. It aggressively and directly broadcast their intent as a band. They received airplay from Zane Lowe and Daniel P Carter at Radio 1, along with continued coverage and Track of the Week in NME for their singles I Get A Taste and Hate. Leading them to secure a spot on the bill for the Rolling Stones Hyde Park show, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Queen Kwong, and Turbowolf.
Staving off the hype from labels and journalists, wanting to put them in the box of grunge renaissance their self-titled debut album makes the biggest statement. Taking full creative control from the songwriting to production, you won't find any contrived revivalism here.
Presented by Be A Body Promotions.
This is a 18+ event.
