Kingston The Fighting Cocks (K Fest 3, Day 1)
May 14th 2010
First off, a huge apology to the awesome Serf Combat (myspace.com/serfcombat). I was working late and only got to the Cocks towards the end of your set, by which point the room was already too full to get to a good place to film from. I'll catch you next time for sure guys.
After Serf Combat, who ruled as always, were Brighton pop punks The Hotlines. I think I've seen them once before and I wasn't too impressed but I was happy to be proved completely wrong as they blasted through an uplifting set of infectious pop punk with nods to the likes of The Ramones and The Queers, with an added surf twist and Beach Boys influence infused in there too. The four-piece released their self-titled album last year on Devils Jukebox. They've also got a couple of split 7"s out with Italy's Radio Days and one of their influences, The Queers.
As far as I can tell from their releases to date, this song is unreleased. Hopefully it won't be for much longer!
