Soundclash 2011 – Round 1 Week 1

January 5th, 2011 saw the first sets of round one being performed by bands at Soundclash. However, 3 became 2 when Victory Beat pulled out due to their guitarist leaving the band on New Year’s Day…Happy New Year Victory Beat.

This meant two remaining bands had a 50/50 chance of winning the round, bagging £100, and entry into the semi-finals. First up was Morning Glory, four cheeky chappies from Worcester with a suitably named band. It was clearly visible that they were enjoying the experience, as were the audience. New to song writing, there were some credible tracks plus an excellent cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. Influenced by the likes of Blink 182 and Avenged Sevenfold, this alternative based group were a solid opening act, and no doubt we will be hearing from them in the future. And yes guys, we know where Morning Glory comes from…

Their rivals for the night were The Death of Johnny Alpha. If Romero made music instead of zombie films, then this can only be described as the creation. From their zombie walk entrance onto stage, this band never failed with their energetic stage presence…not bad for dead guys. A completely different style of genre to Morning Glory, the audience was treated to ‘Zombie Rock’. With notable tracks including firm favourite All Hail The Elephant Man, the energy from stage was as infectious as a virus to the observing crowd. With treats from both bands, the actual winner was really going to be a tough call.

To find out week one’s winner, and to listen to the backstage interviews, check out the podcast. Soundclash is live every Wednesday from Cox’s Yard, and covered on Stratcast from 8pm.
