Camden Rocks Festival Review - Bring The Noise

After Ginger’s set at Proud Galleries, plenty of fans stick around to discover what ex-Wildhearts bassist Danny McCormack will bring to the table with his new band The Main Grains. The Northern four piece begin with their single Unscrewed, which sets the pace for the rest of the set with classic-sounding punk rock riffs and a sing-along chorus. It’s a formula that serves them well, and those in attendance seem to agree, with heads nodding in approval as the band unleash further tracks from their debut album Don’t Believe Everything You Think, including I’d Rather Be In California and the high-energy She’s a Catch. Guitar solos are littered throughout, giving lead guitarist Ben Marsden the chance to showcase his shredding skills, and a cover of Teenage Kicks (which also features on the album) is a fitting hark back to the days when punk rock first established itself in the mainstream. It’s still early days yet for this band, but we look forward to seeing more of them in the future. 8/10
