Roaring punk rock energy that was forged in Copenhagen in 2008 and has been mercilessly hammering an exhaustingly relentless rock and roll stake into our brains ever since. Seductive, sweaty, cool and simmering with a blinding fuck you intoxication other band scan only dream of. This years Beyondless album sees Iceage surpass everything they’ve ever done before in a whirlwind of chaos that recalls a wealth of possible influences from the languid cabaret schmoozing of The Growlers, through Swans, Velvet Underground and The Stooges. It feels dangerous, as Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s poetically dark lyricism creeps through songs such as the astonishing Catch it. We already know this is going to be one of the best gigs of the year, see you there.
Mon 3 Sep 7.30pm at the Hare & Hounds, 106 High St, Birmingham B14 7JZ £14.40 www.skiddle.com
