This was the final track on Radio Horror (And what a way to end the show eh?)
Nightporter are a Newcastle-based band that have toured all over the UK. They combine the best elements of Alternative Rock, Psychedelia and heavy Post Punk to create a blistering wall of sound of their own. Think Killing Joke going toe to toe with The Doors while Joy Division sticks the boot in and you have the NightPorter sound. It’s the dark end of the street, part melody, part menace but overall very infectious.
We’re a very big fan of Nightporter here at Erebus Horror and we hope to feature many more of their tracks in any further shows we might do (Once we’ve won our legal battle of course)

The fifth track to be played on Radio Horror
Located in Manchester, the band is also known as the ‘original’ British Heavy Metal Band.To quote their website they are Unique. Quirky. Different. Blending and melding disparate styles and influences into a new, unique cohesive musical powerhouse. Thus emerged, without fanfare or bluster, without hype or hysteria – one band to rule them all in the crossover period that was post-punk, post-NWOBHM, pre-grunge, pre-numetal – that sound, that energy, that force, was Hell’s Belles.
Awesome band with a great sound! They’re sure to go far.

This would have been track number four on Radio Horror.
Unfortunately we don’t have much info on Machination except that their electro-sound is compelling! As far as we know they formed at the end of 2010. That, and the fact that it’s just a vocalist and a synth player makes their feat all the more impressive!

This was the third track to be featured on Radio Horror.
Never A Hero are the more unique of bands that we’ve experienced so far. First of all they have a great sound which brings up the question of WHY AREN’T THEY WORLD FAMOUS YET?! Surely a band of this calibre should have hit the big time by now? Let’s make it happen horror fans.
Another unique aspect of the band is how they wear morbid-looking masks whilst on stage and they also perform wearing straight-jackets. Not a bunch you want to meet in a dark alley…
But of course we just had to muse… How do they play wearing straight jackets? Have we been mis-informed? Or is their level of greatness far beyond our understanding. We need to go see these guys live to clear it up (Anything to get a few free tickets eh?)

This would have been the second track on the opening night of Radio Horror.
Dick Blake is obviously one of the great storytellers of the music world. Abduction, UFOs, alien sex and a little green baby is the story of Alien Love Child. What more could you want?
A website would be nice…
We’ve got that as well! www.alienlovechild.co.uk
