It was time for our seventh gig in nine days and I have to admit that I was really struggling. Last thing in the world I wanted to do was make the journey down to New Cross, all I wanted to do was lay down in bed and sleep. But, for the first time ever, The Copyrights were in London and I knew I couldn't miss this historic event. The Zatopeks were also playing a rare London show and it had been far too long since I've seen them so I powered through my exhaustion, with no doubt in my mind that it would be worth it.
The first band on are a new one in the UK punk scene – London's Mean Caesar. Featuring current and ex-members of bands such as Great Cynics, The Murderburgers, Myelin, Pure Graft, Werecats and Crystal Piss, it's clear that Mean Caesar are a band to really take notice of. The five piece took to the stage and blew me away immediately with some great melodic gruff punk. Lead singer Danny Lester has a great presence on the stage as he prowled around the stage and, at times, the floor. The set was short and sweet but did plenty for me to get excited to see what comes next from Mean Caesar. They also filmed a music video on the day of the gig so make sure that you keep an eye open for that in the coming weeks.
