22nd February 2019

One of the hottest bands around leave their mark on Newcastle tonight with a blistering set of great tracks from their first two albums!

With two of the most sought after records around even before any band has taken to the stage tonight there is a buzz around the merch table. With a rare opportunity to grab copies of High Visceral part 1 & 2 fans are taking their chance, fortunately Psychedelic Porn Crumpets exuberant merch man is only too happy to oblige. The Mysterines take to the stage in equally emphatic fashion the Liverpudlian trio are in particularly fervent fashion this evening with lead singer Lia Medcalf immediately striking as a force of nature with such a powerful and angry voice.

Their short set is a tirade of powerful riffs that have this already heaving crowd nodding along. They steamroller this crowd with such a passionate and exciting set, these guys have an exceptionally bright future ahead of them with a sound as good as this! With the bar already set extremely high Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have a lot to match up to as the quartet file out on to the stage, launching immediately into Gurzle they elevate the previous bar to a whole new level. The band look relatively understated but from the first riff they set a completely new precedent.

Their blissed our hazy riff laden tracks follow in quick succession often being moulded almost seamlessly into one, Buzz and Terraqueous being the perfect example of this. Surf’s Up is an early favourite with its laidback slacker tone augmented by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets signature style, their passion and fervour emanate from their tracks but their demeanour remains one of relative nonchalance as they put on an incredible show without looking like they get out of second gear.

There are rare moments where this breaks though, the first sign of a circle pit in this tiny venue leaves the band with smiles beaming across their faces. As well as when lead singer Jack announced that a number of his extended family were in the room, igniting multiple local football chants which then continued throughout the rest of the set. They continue to astound and excite with riff after riff and the latter part of the set appears to get increasingly heavy as they build up to a thunderous close.

As they announce closing track Cornflake the room erupts one final time, as they power through this epic track with that similar relative ease that they’ve shown all night. This packed out room is treated to an impeccable set by one of the hottest bands around tonight, they’ve taken all that is good about their home country counterparts and distilled it into a seething, powerful, exciting and brilliant set. Psychedelic Porn Crumpets truly live up to any hyperbole tonight and they are certain to take off to even bigger stages in the not so distant future.
