As 2015 finally got going, London newcomers Puppy took their thrashing first steps with a debut track, ‘Forever’. Not exactly throwback, it still manages to recall the grubby, hook-stuffed peaks of pop punk, nostalgia lining the seams.
It’s no surprise, then, that instead of showing their faces, the anonymous group have put together a montage of rock and nu-metal’s terrifying heyday. Shots from early ‘00s-era Download and Reading & Leeds fests combine to showcase a grim, slightly regrettable but unmistakably of-its-time few years.
All that’s missing is a Limp Bizkit cameo.
