We at Bad Vibes love bringing bands over to London from all parts of the world. We've had Boogarins (Brazil), Follakzoid (Chile), The Coathangers (USA), and the list goes on. We have teamed up with Rapt Records, to welcome Death By Raygun from Japan as they come down to the UK for their first ever London show at the Shacklewell Arms. They are most excited about us London lot showing them how hard we go at gigs, ''so long as nobody takes a shit behind the amps, or falls asleep!'' Which I don't see happening since their music is quite haunting, almost like reliving Halloween every day.
Death By Raygun claim to ''lay tarantula eggs in your ears'', which gave me the creeps, but after listening to tracks such as ''The Inventor of the Senseless High school Massacre'' that's scuzzy enough to warm you up for the nesting of the tarantula eggs. With plans on releasing a full length album this year on the label 'Number4Door' the band have a great year ahead of them playing shows and spending money on ''crap merchandise that nobody wants, like official Death By Raygun Urinal mats.''
Death By Raygun recommend:
''Pinprick Punishment” are my favourite band right now though, by some distance. It’s like weird hardcore punk. The whole band is really strung out looking and the singer behaves like a glass bottle is constantly exploding inside his ass. Real aggressive stuff.
