Live review: Slaves at Latitude Festival 2014
Proud exports of Royal Tunbridge Wells Slaves caused a stir on the Lake Stage on Saturday.
The raw punk duo blasted through a fun set and even managed to draw a crowd surfer at the festival better known for olives and yoga than rock and roll.
Not ones to take themselves seriously, singer and drummer Isaac Holman introduced a song about the terror of walking their friend Debby to her car – through woods in Tunbridge Wells where it was rumoured that a Sasquatch was living.
And taking a post-punk turn, a spoken word intro to Girl Fight recounted a drunken trip to get takeaway food before stumbling upon said fight and gawping out of curiosity – when the song erupted into a raucous guitar riff.
Towards the end of the set the heavily-tattooed duo of Holman, standing up drumming and singing, and guitarist Laurie Vincent got shirtless and gave all they had left.
