There was another reason to celebrate the November 5th in London besides being Guy Fawkes Night – the RoJo Rage Tour hit Camden Town. SKID ROW and UGLY KID JOE, the finest “youth gone wild” and “least wanted” of America, were about to set their own brand of fireworks on the Electric Ballroom stage.
Australian rockers DEAD CITY RUINS completed the package, warming up the crowd for half an hour. Loud guitars, sharp beats, high-pitched cries and long curls waving fiercely back and forth… Sadly I only caught the name of two songs, “Broken Bones” and “Damn My Eyes” but I can tell you they were all 110% rock’n’roll attitude. Not exactly something new or extraordinary, but good enough.
It wasn’t their first time there and they surely had a handful of fans screaming along. “Help us out coming back by buying anything on the merch stand”, incited Jake Wiffen close to the end. Not sure if that plea worked out, but I believe many would like to see them again.
