With Live At Leeds right around the corner (this very weekend, to be precise!) Geordie rabble Eat Fast are getting ready to take the city by storm, with all sorts of exciting things - from new labels, to in progress EPs - on the go. Ahead of the city-wide festival, which takes place on 29th April, the band stopped by for a natter about their firework-channelling live set, and a past brush they had with a group of “young radgies” last time they visited Leeds.
That’s not it, either! Keep scrolling and hit play on our Live At Leeds 2017 playlist - featuring a bunch of ace bands due to descend on the city.
You can buy tickets for this year’s Live At Leeds here.
We’ll be hosting, not one, but two stages at Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on Saturday - with the likes of The Big Moon, Dream Wife, Eat Fast, Off Bloom, Trudy & The Romance, and loads more set to play. All the details right here.
What’s new in the world of Eat Fast?
We signed to Cannibal Hymns at the start of the year, so we’re really proud to be joining the likes of Dream Wife and Our Girl with them. We’re releasing our second EP with them around the time of The Great Escape, and we’re currently compiling songs for EP3. No rest for the WKD.
What can we expect from your Live at Leeds set?
The audial equivalent of an extravagant and colourful firework being aimed at your face.
Tell us a story of a past encounter with Leeds.
A few of us went down on Bonfire Night to see Preoccupations at the Brudenell. A few young radgies in the adjacent park started aiming fireworks at the people outside the venue. One of them flew straight past my head. Wouldn’t that have been messy!
