Kingston Fighting Cocks
March 6th 2010
Rising from the ashes of the much-loved hardcore heroes The Steal, Mark (vocals) and Dave (guitar) are back with Jaffa (drums) and Mike (bass) and their new band Pacer. Taking their name from a basketball term I think (Indiana Pacers anyone?), they're influenced by the likes of the Descendents, ALL, Bouncing Souls, Iron Chic, Guildford Heat/UK basketball and ridiculously awesome looking tubby funster cats! This was their first ever song at their first gig and they're clearly loving it, as was the crowd. I can't wait to the demo that's on the way too!
On a side note, Mark's art is part of an awesome Art Is Proof 'All My Best Friends Are...' exhibition/pop up shop of art, screen prints, books, zines and more for the next ten days in East London so get down there, check it out and pick up a bargain.
