Some say that love is the greatest force in the universe, but those that think this are truly deluded morons. I put it to you that it is hate, not love, that is the strongest force in the universe. Hate gets shit done. Do you think that Thomas Edison invented the light bulb because he loved light? No, of course not, he invented it because he hated the dark and getting burnt by candles. It is hate that changes the world; hate brought down the Twin Towers, hate instigated the holocaust, hate is the most primal of emotions and one that each and everyone of us faces on a daily basis.

A grey Stoke afternoon extends across the venue, the mood quiet and sulky. With doors open, there are but a handful of people that aren’t a member of a band or a part of their entourage outside The Underground, a favourite venue of Stoke. With this scene all too familiar, there isn’t so much a feeling of disheartening, but just being used to the (let’s face it) dire state of the UK music scene at the moment.
