Our mate and ex-coworker, Ben ‘The Goat’ Ward (bloke on the left), has been in a band named Old Loaves for about ten years now, and they’re latest album, Banks, is heavy as an elephant wearing another elephant for a hat.
Ben (guitar and vocals) and his bandmates, Cameron Reid (Drums and backing vocals) John Strange (Bass and backing vocals), remind me a bit of The Melvins, but not really. Can’t pin ’em down, to be honest, they just sound good and doomy and sludgy and slightly brutal. Anyway, the new album is awesome. Worth a listen. Do yourself a favour, etc.
