Wildhearts: Old Man Ginger On The Nu-Generation
“I managed to catch both Psycho A Go-Go and Dog Toffee’s sets [last night in Milton Keynes],” said mainman Ginger on his official website – www.thewildhearts.co.uk – whilst talking about his band’s recent warm up shows for this weekend’s Distortion festival in Nottingham. “Psycho were brilliantly sleazy and have one of the most eccentric frontmen since Eddie Tenpole, while Dog Toffee rocked in a ‘Supersuckers brawling with Groop Dogdrill’ stylee. Fantastic stuff. You really must check out both of these bands for sheer entertainment. In fact, they should get out on tour together and take their frenetic brands of rock ‘n’ roll to the starving masses. You just don’t get enough quality these days to ignore talent like this.”
Metal Hammer pays tribute to The Wildhearts 10th anniversary with a massive six page retrospective in our August issue (which is out now).
