Wet Nuns bring the swagger and plenty of smoking atmospherics to the Kazimier, Getintothis’ Dru Ryder takes it all in.
Ball busting duo, Wet Nuns, slammed on the guitar and beat their drums into submission for the umpteenth time in Liverpool.
Yorkshire duo, Rob and Alexis returned to Merseyside with their rip-roaring riffs and filthy vocals, not to mention their delightful banter, which revolved around the former’s dodgy bowels when they last visited these parts.
Nonchalant and oozing swagger, the band call out for more on stage smoke to increase ‘the vibe‘, as they hop through the air like a pair of hallucinating angry hippies.
Their songs, though, rely on a twisted sense of reality and paired with their dark, dirty blues it proves an irresistible combination. Topless and tattooed Alexis packs a very real punch, smashing his drums to smithereens as Rob wrestles with riffs that made heads slam around The Kazimier.
Don’t take them for granted, this was yet another triumph, leaving heads banging and hearts pumping.
