Steg rock from Pensby

Flames In The Fort


The opening night of this years Fort Perch Rocks festival in New Brighton was hosted by The Core and Antipop Records. We were lucky enough to be asked to open the night and although the turn out wasn't great that early on, a fine half hour set was to be played including a rare outing for the steg rock classic Scum Bucket Lover, which climaxed in an anarchistic guitar smash from Mr Glen Eagle. The guitar was later burned in a kind of pagan rock ritual.

By means of a link you can watch a video of this song right here. And below are some images from the night.

Shipped out to The Ship Inn





















As Glassfire closed down a few days before Oxjam, the Popcorn were moved to The Ship Inn, which turned out to be a really great venue. Fallen Industries tended to the sound again, but were forced by the  landlord to turn us down, with which we accordingly turned it back up. Grab yerselves a copy of the gig right here.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, if you want to see a vid from the gig look here.

The One Mic Sessions





















Our good friend Neil Patterson came over to a recent rehearsal and recorded a few songs for us. Considering he only used one microphone and his laptop the results weren't bad.
