Local stoner rock duo ASTEROID have enjoyed a very successful first 6 months as a gigging band, having built up an increasingly large and loyal following in the area, making their regular Ipswich gigs invariably packed out nights.
Musically the bands KYUSS/QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE influenced rock has been developing rapidly also, with a more spontaneous and off-the-cuff feel coming through thanks to this pair’s enviable understanding of each others playing.
There was a slightly smaller crowd out tonight, but considering the gig was all a last minute, rushed affair the amount of people present stands as testament to ASTEROID’s popularity.
Vocalist/guitarist Ryan was on top form tonight, engaging the crowd with a confidence lacking from his earlier performances, creating a great atmosphere and making the crowd feel a part of the show.
This heavy, groove driven set was brought to a close with an almighty mindfucking mess of fuzz and noise which so few bands can pull off without appearing contrived, but comes so naturally to this pair. Look out for them in a town near you when they hit the road this summer, you wont be disappointed.
