Filthy Pedro at Offline Club: photos

Offline live music special with Filthy Pedro (album launch party) and Hank Haint plus DJs, Prince Albert, ColdharbourLane, Brixton, London, SW9, Friday 23rd April 2010

The photos don’t even come close to capturing the mayhem that accompanies a Filthy Pedro gig, so you’ll have to take it from me that the night was a whole load of fun.

Musically the band sound like, well, nothing I’ve really heard before.

They feature a punk rock bassist who’s generally more interested in drinking and chatting to the audience than playing the song, a singer who wears a wrestling mask and sings about being kicked out of Anglesey, a permanently confused accordion player and a trained opera singer all combining to make a noise that fluctuates between the most exciting thing you’ve heard for ages and a dreadful noise.

I love them.

Supporting was Hank Haint, an exciting one-mad band who has so much reverb on his voice that you can probably still hear it the morning after. And the week after that.
