BlackWaters – Oh my word, Blackwaters are awesome and should go really far! They hail from Guildford and are apparently only 19 years old. They have a stage manner of a band of more mature years, especially their captivating front man, who has an element of Lydon about him. They are best described as being just like up-and-coming Bristol band IDLES meets sub three minute 1976 punk rock. So any self respecting punk needs some Blackwaters in their life. Their best tracks are ‘Down’ and the anthemic Oi Oi style ‘F*** Yeah’.
Influences Fidlar, Dead Kennedys, The Clash, Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, John Cooper Clarke, The Ramones, The Velvet Underground and Palma Violets.
