Wilson are here to fuck shit up, so you better get on board.
Normally, when we get emails about new bands they all say the same old boring shit. But Wilson's email was different. They play rock 'n' roll like someone's set their legs on fire, and the only way to put it out is to make the crowd so drunk they spill their beers all over the galloping flames. We're streaming their brand new album 'Full Blast Fuckery' right here, and you should really listen to it right now, loudly.
"Wilson is not an internet band. They’re five dudes in a van with beards and big dicks- working harder than your parents," the email began. Good start. "But instead of giving their all as stockbrokers or auto-mechanics or assistant branch managers their job is to destroy your party." What, MY party? "Forget debates about the music industry, about download analytics, mp3 singles, and the 'charts'. Screw genres. All that has nothing to do with music." Couldn't agree more! That shit is dull.
"But when that Wilson van cruises into your town that shit is REAL. Real MUSIC. Real LIFE. Real LOUD. Real SWEATY. And real fucking FUN." Well, my shirt's already off.
Our coverstars Neck Deep decimated the Lock Up stage earlier today at Leeds. Read what we made of their set and watch frontman Ben Barlow rap for us (yeah, really) on our live blog. All shots by Carla Mundy for Rock Sound.
In less than 24 hours, the gates will swing open at Reading & Leeds and the biggest rock festivals of the summer will be underway. These are our predictions for the weekend (with some ludicrous suggestions thrown in for good measure, natch).
