There was a time when Pop Will Eat Itself were a Ramones style fuzzbox Blitzkrieg Bop of a band whose then singer Clint Mansell used to ring me at 8 in the morning looking for help but then they discovered hip hop and unleashed their inner imagination and became big.
They never get the credit for their inventiveness and originality – maybe their modest Brummie nature plus their acting the goat combined to get in the way of their innovative records but they remain much loved.
A couple of years ago they returned with Graeme Crabb joined by the charismatic Mary Byker in a new line up which had an added industrial muscle to their party pounding and live it sounded monstrous when I caught them at Beautiful Days festival. This London gig will showcase their harder sound and political edge and is a chance to catch up with a band who influenced bands like Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy and spawned many others.
