Mysterious Newcastle rabble Eat Fast first grabbed attention at the start of the summer with a rip-roaring floor show in a Brighton pub, and since then - by way of fuzzed-up slices ‘Fenham Dreadlock’ and ‘Stammer’ - things are are only getting bigger still.

Over the weekend the band made their first ever appearance at Reading and Leeds, on the BBC Introducing stage, and now there’s lovely shiny video footage of the set online for anyone unlucky enough to be absent from the show. Have a gander.

Off the back of releasing their ‘Fenham Dread (Lock)’ EP in May, Eat Fast will play DIY’s Hell Yes I’m Tufnell Enough all-dayer, along with Prides, Will Joseph Cook, Trudy & the Romance, Gengahr, and some very, very special mystery guests. Full details here.
