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.
