Artist: Hooded Fang

Song: Dead Battery

Recorded at Double Double Land ("C.R.E.A.M. All Ages" - Day 2), June 21, 2015.

Hooded Fang - Dead Battery

Created as an alternative to a concurrently-running large corporate music festival, this weekend of events at DDL included kid-friendly all-ages vibes (so much so that there was even a colouring book on offer) over two afternoons. Sunday's show felt low-key and casual and included sets from Ken Park, Lido Pimienta and Petra Glynt. The afternoon closed with Hooded Fang bashing out a series of their new songs — the core sound of which comes off like a break from a disco 12" cranked up to double speed and then rocked over with precise abandon.

[Anyone wanting to celebrate the current rhythmically-driven incarnation of Hooded Fang should hasten up to Mercury Social Club on July 17th, where the band will be playing on a spectac double bill with Darlene Shrugg.]
