Shutter are pretty meaty but also pack quite a melodic punch , in a Deftones meets Mogwai style. Alamos do angular, sharp, Fugazi-esk tunes. There are links for both in the first post if you care to have an audio gander.

Say 'yes' to Alamos.

I haven't seen them in what seems like an age.

I'm keen to give Static In The City a bash also.

It was a strangely assembled gig. Free Korps verged on absolute terrible at times. Very uninteresting. They sound like an even worse Kaiser Chiefs. Probably unintentionally.

Shutter were quite good - but very generic. Seen it and heard it all before.

Static In The City were not as good as I expected or wanted them to be. But I was told not to judge them on that performance, so I'll check them out again.

Alamos were fantastically loud and energetic as always. Their sound was a bit duff though - the vocals were lost amongst the sheer volume of the guitar. But the songs were still there, and they possess a superb wee drummer.
