- Uber Rock Slugfest 4 Live Review
Slugfest 4 : Sunday - Abertillery, The Doll's House - 31st July 2011 Written by Gaz E Sunday, 07 August 2011 05:00
Appearing next, without fuss or headlines, are Goat Leaf. This band feature a guitarist named John Hodgson who some of you may know (but all of you should know) as Johnny H, guitarist with the incredible Warrior Soul. He should not, of course, be confused with the Johnny H from Uber Rock who decided he would rather go on holiday than watch twenty five awesome bands thrill hundreds of awesome people at the best ever Slugfest. But I digress. Goat Leaf released the excellent 'Colorscene' album earlier this year and, in bringing its fuzzed-out stoner-esque grooves to The Doll's House, they impress upon everyone in attendance that they are one of the finest acts to ever play at this festival. Vocalist Jonny Maycock has sex pest facial hair and, well, a sex pest's tracksuit top yet his performance is up their with the lunatic best; a perfect voice for this fine ear candy and a suitably crazed onstage persona. Goat Leaf have brought a piece of the desert to Slugfest and everyone here is happy to get sand in every orifice. A class act.
