WINTER ROCKS – Sheffield Corporation, 6 December 2014

Stage 2 headliners Goat Leaf could have blown the main stage away tonight, if not with the mass of fans there for them! Then with the deep bass groove laden rock they were playing, the stage was rammed full ready for them to rattle our bones.

Rotherham based, they have great following and I can hear why; their sound mixes foundation-shattering bass rhythms with solid drumming and plenty of driving fuzzy guitar riffs.

Vocalist Jonny Town has been here most of the day taking in the vibe and craic of the festival and is now giving it all back in an awesome performance. Think of the psychedelic sound of 70′s Sabbath and throw in a big slab of stoner rock and you’re on your way to these guys, I’ve never heard a Rickenbacker sound that deep!
