Preview: 1000Mods, The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell and Mountains @ Camden Underworld, London (UK) – Wednesday 20th June 2018

One of the best bands of Desertfest 2017 were Greece’s 1000Mods. They packed out the Electric Ballroom and performed energetically and passionately, becoming one of the bands of the day in the process. A year and two months later and they are back in the Underworld, with two great support acts.

Performing at Desertfest this year, Mountains are back in Camden to bring their progressive, bluesy stoner riffs to the masses. The band’s blue vibes come across on the vocals, especially on ‘Everglades’ from last year;s brilliant Dust In The Glare. Mountains are the perfect band to start the day as they have the riffs and energy to match the headliners.

The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell aka The Shove, are heroes of the scene. Stepping into Desertfest at the last minute to replace Sourvein on the bill, they’re back again to bring more of their old-school riffs and infectious songs. If you love your rock music dirty and old-school, then the Shove are the ones for you.

1000mods are an aboslute killer band and one of the best exports from Greece in recent years. Whether their songs are short and snappy, or long drawn out epics like ‘Vidage’, they clearly are a band who give 1000% with every riff and beat. Few up-and-coming bands have had the imapct of 1000mods and they certainly aren’t a band who go on autopilot. If their Desertfest performance last year was something to go by, this band certainly mean business.

About Jack (874 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
