09 December 2002: Murderdolls + The 80’s Matchbox B-Line Disaster - Rock City, Nottingham, England, UK
Glam Rock is dead, long live Glam Rock. Every generation throws up a bunch of weirdoes who like to get dressed up in sparkly costumes and make-up and this generation is no exception. The murderdoll featuring Joey from Slipknot and Wednesday 13 from The Frankenstein Drag Queens of Planet 13 bring glam metal to the twenty first century.
The first band on were The 80’s Matchbox B-Line Disaster who have been getting a bit of attention from the rock press and I was quite interested to see them live. I have to confess to being left a little unsure of what I made of them. I couldn’t decide if they were supposed to be all drums and bass or if the guitar should have been a bit higher in the mix, I will have to get some studio stuff and see what I make of that.
The gig was a 14’s and over event, quite unusual for Rock City, but it did mean I got a great view of the stage and could get a beer really easily (something else that is unusual for Rock City). The Murderdolls came on to a good reception from the crowd and treated them to a pretty good show, big riffs and lost of swearing. Having never heard the studio stuff I have no idea what the tracks were that they played apart from the last track which is a Frankenstein Drag Queen track called I love to Say Fuck, which was quite an appropriate one to end on. All in all I have to say I enjoyed these guys, deep and meaningful it ain’t but it is bloody good rock ‘n’ roll.
