DESERTFEST IS GOING TO GET TRAMPLED BY CATTLE!
Leeds noise rock gents Cattle are bringing their hyper-massive, mind-bending riffs to Desertfest 2018.
Cattle are one of those bands that you really need to see live to fully appreciate. That’s not to say that they don’t also rule on record; everything they’ve put out since their 2013 self-titled EP to their 2016 debut album Nature’s Champion has been utterly brilliant and uncompromising. But when you finally get to see the full omni-musical experience live everything you loved about their records multiplies by a thousand and the music hits you like that cow hit Alan Partridge. Two drummers, fuzzed out bass, saxophone, atmospheric noise and a demented screaming singer combine to assault your senses and leave you with a form of dancing mania. If that all sounds weird, it’s because it is.
All this to say that Cattle are one of the most entertaining bands in the UK right now so whatever you do, don’t miss them at Desertfest 2018. You’ve been warned!
