It’s testament to the weird sort of quality Truckers Of Husk have that even though they’ve been around the gig block a few times now, every show feels like an event in its own right. (Note to good bands: play less gigs? Maybe) Anyway, this evening will be a bit more event-y than usual, being as it’s for a Genuine Good Cause and all. The most recent Truckers appearance, as the other slice of bread in the Les Savy Fav/Young Legionnaire shit sandwich six weeks ago, showed them nailing their twisty heaviness best since playing with Line Up Mark 2, the extra keyboard and guitar layers reinforcing the highly strung math rock jinking, with Kelson’s grumpy stormtrooper act puncturing any twiddly posturing. Heaviness you can dance to, like a drunk Spirograph.
Following sold out shows at last year’s Swn Festival and a place on the bill supporting Les Savy Fav, Truckers Of Husk continue to tear through Cardiff’s live venues by bringing their unique calypso-infused-math-jams to CAI. Support comes from Hunters, who look to build on the momentum gained from their Adam Walton session recorded at the tail end of 2010. Opening the night are Denuo, hot on the heels of a Radio 2 approved support slot with the Manic Street Preachers at Blackwood Miners Institute.
All proceeds from this unique event will go to the Down’s Heart Group (www.dhg.org.uk). ‘Sold out’ are two words that seem to follow Truckers Of Husk around. Get your ticket early to avoid disappointment. Go on, it’s for charidee after all.
