“It’s been 17 long years since Boss Hog last had an album to tour, so Friday’s show at Hackney’s Oslo was an event not to be missed…

“Noise-core aficionados of all ages were in attendance, reflecting the extraordinary longevity of a band that’s been bursting eardrums and ripping up stages since 1989.

Sirens heralding their presence, the band tear into the excellent Wichita Grey from last year’s comeback EP Brood Star and it’s raw power all the way from then on.

Songs rip by at breakneck speed, the band stretched to the limit, yet just about managing to keep it all together.

A whirl of energy, frontwoman Cristina Martinez dominates proceedings, constantly criss-crossing the stage as she belts out her vocals.

Menacingly seductive on record, live she’s a bubbly, joyous presence, all smiles as she takes time out to introduce the rest of the band…

Then all too soon it’s all over and ears ringing, we scuttle back out into the freezing February night.

Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait another 17 years before they’re back this way again.” – Matt Catchpole / essentiallypop.com
