HKBO en Showburner

The Hong Kong Blood Opera

You know how Hadouken! think that because they shout a bit and use guitars but – gasp! – also use drum machines and technology they are in some way upsetting to old people? Yeah, if they were Mexican like this lot, Britain might well have actually crumbled. Brilliantly disjointed, pounding, riffing, screaming, sung & rapped high energy lunacy that will sound so much like a fucking train in your head when live that you may – quite literally – die. Anyone who opens a track with “This is how we motherfucking roll / Making people go apeshit”, while sounding like a cross between Duran Duran, Iron Maiden, The Hives, early Beasties and that drunk Scottish tramp you know who shouts at aeroplanes have got to be worth a punt, right?

Pretty kickass, huh?
