Heavy Lungs – 30th January 2019 – Newcastle Think Tank

On the night that Boyzone played in front thousands at the Metro Radio Arena, I chose to spend my night Watching some proper music instead at Newcastle Think Tank. Following on from supporting Idles at Newcastle Riverside in October post-punk band heavy lungs arrived back in Newcastle to play at Think Tank as a part of their own UK tour, previously playing Nottingham the night before.

Heavy Lungs follow a long line of successful bands that have made the leap out of Bristol. Having only formed in the spring of 2017 they have already supported some big bands (such as pals Idles) and they are carving their own path through the British music scene.

Playing Downstairs in Think Tank’s Underground the rooms barren décor of heavy steel beams concrete and wooden pallet clad walls played the perfect backdrop to the four pieces set which included drummer George pummelling his kit through every song and vocalist Danny ponding on and off stage and more guitar riffs and bass licks than you can shake a shitty stick at.

Heavy Lungs are a great band to see live and if they keep playing gigs at the pace they play their music then I’m sure they’ll soon pick up a big following and go far.

Setlist;

  • Half full
  • Jealous
  • Roy
  • Blood Brother
  • Motorhead
  • Stutter
  • Charmer
  • Bangalore
  • Descend
  • Unfaithful one

Heavy Lungs – 23rd October 2018 – Newcastle Riverside – Review and photos

Heavy Lungs – 23rd Oct 2018 – Riverside Newcastle

Rather than giving Heavy Lungs just a side note in the main Idles review, I thought the quality their performance deserved so much more than that! So here’s a full photo feature on their epic set! They have embraced the opportunity to hit some big venues with pals Idles on their sold-out run of UK shows, check out the Idles review and pics here. They seem like an ideal pairing, and there’s a vast amount of people at the venue for doors opening to catch their set.

Frontman Danny Nedelko has been immortalised in the Idles song and tonight he owns the stage. Stalking it like a man possessed, by the end of their short set he has the audience eating out the palm of his hands, hanging on every word. Very much a striking frontman, as the photographic evidence will show!

Heavy Lungs – 23rd Oct 2018 – Riverside Newcastle

They’re much more straight punk than Idles and really reminded me of early Bad Breeding, albeit a much more accessible and less extreme version, whilst channelling the vibe of PiL.

They’ve just announced another UK tour which includes a stop at Newcastle Think Tank in January 2019. On the strength of tonight’s performance, they are certainly ones to watch and I think I’ll have to go catch them again!
