Belfast Festival at Queen's: Therapy?

Mandela Hall, 15 Oct 8:00pm

Published 26/08/2010

The distinctive sound of Therapy? was first forged 20 years ago: three young men in a dingy rehearsal room, heads down, eyes closed, lost in music, locked into a groove: a fractured dance beat, a prowling bass line, whirring, whining guitar, distorted vocals spitting alienation and desolation through an overloaded PA.

And so began the history of a legendary band that has spawned over a dozen albums delivering monster guitar riffs, huge choruses, anthemic songs and high octane slabs of pure Rock, from Babyteeth (1991) to Crooked Timber (2009) and not forgetting the all-time classic Troublegum (1994).

Support from LaFaro & Axis Of

“Old school post hardcore sounds with just drums, guitars and big chunky distorted bass and Jonny Black mangling his vocals like he’s got a mouth full of drill bits, believe me, it’s a good thing."?‘Alternative Ulster’ magazine on LeFaro?



Axis Of are an Alt/Punk band hailing from Portstewart/Belfast who have made quite an impact with their massive riffs, chaotic live shows and thoughtful lyrics. Debut single Brobdingnagian was released to a terrific reception in a sold out Auntie Annie’s.



Introduced by BBC Radio Ulster's Rigsy.



This event will be recorded for future broadcast on Across the Line.
