Calm Like A Riot


Calm in the light, originally uploaded by ukespresso.

Calm Like A Riot played this week in Wolverhampton's Little Civic as part of Battle of the Bands. They played 4 songs to impress the judges but despite an impressive and typically spirited performance came second. Onwards and upwards!

The other bands were metal so they may have been fighting an uphill battle before they started but the short, sharp and sweet set went down well. Calm Like A Riot hail from Worcester and write/ play all their own songs that are hard to label but have a hint of Rage Against The Machine, a splash of hip-hop and a twist of punk attitude.

Make up your own mind- listen to their music at

NB: I had planned to do an introductory type first post but... "We're supposed to start with these operation programs first. That's major boring shit. Let's do something a little more fun. How about... combat training."
