Another fine gig coming to the city of Newcastle, this time it’s Leeds based punk outfit Eagulls.

If you’ve never heard them before, you ought to. They manage to strip away all of the pretension you often find in so called ‘punk’ music, and opt for a very raw, honest sound. The way they approach the music is simplistic in style, but not so in effect. While they take influences from the hardcore punk music of the 80’s, they manage to convey them in such a fresh and unique way. It’s a completely engaging sound and the unhinged nature of it only adds to its charm. Somehow managing to sound raw and brutal, but also delightfully melodic at the same time. I’ve always imagined them as a band that would only ever release limited 7″ singles, building up a small but loyal following and never really wanting anything more than that. It’s quite a reassuring thought.

It’s at the Dog and Parrot and I can assure you that it will be the sweatiest gig of the year. It’s going to be a pleasure to see them play in such a small and intimate space.

Support on the night comes from the infectious tech wizardry of Waskerley Way and local Punk/Emo lads Sunday League.

Dog @ Parrot, Newcastle
4th May 2012. £4.
