Slaves - De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill On Sea, 11th October 2016 Live Review


In the magnificent splendour of the 1935 Art Deco master piece, The De La Warr Pavillion at Bexhill On Sea, Slaves took to the stage on this their third leg of a major U.K tour. It was practically a home coming gig; Slaves having decamped from their Royal Tunbridge Wells home to travel the thirty miles South to the East Sussex coast. The packed crowd, of surprisingly wide ranging ages, had probably all travelled further but however they'd got there it was to be a journey well worth the effort as they were definitely not going to be disappointment.

Slaves - De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill On Sea, 11th October 2016 Live Review

Slaves were clearly up for a good night, having recently returned from Europe it "was nice to be back with you lovely people". From the opening bars of the first track Slaves were energised to give it their all letting up only occasionally for a little respite. Mixing tracks from 'Are You Satisfied' and 'Take Control' the boys tore up the auditorium with track after incendiary track. 'Hey' started to build a terrific head of momentum before a rousing version of the anthemic 'Rich Man'. Where the gig exploded with more energy than the Hadron Collider however was when crowd pleaser, 'Sockets', was aired with such raw, impassioned, brutal fervour and frenzy that it electrified all before them.

Laurie and Isaac played hard and fast all night, like Killing Joke on steroids they did more than just evoke memories of past Punk triumphs they rewrote the brief. Through 'Same Again', an amusingly pre-ambled and thunderous take on 'Debbie Where's Your Car, 'STD's/PHD's' and a truly unbelievable 'Take Control' the Kent duo took the venue apart. It was a mesmerising performance that quite literally took your breath away; it was tiring just to watch the pair in action. There was only the briefest of let ups to draw breathe as Laurie flailed and spiralled around stage whilst Isaac insanely pounded the living daylights out of the drums.

Slaves - Are You Satisfied? (BBC Radio 1 Session) Album Review


There really is no way you can justify under selling how incredibly fantastic 2015 has been for Slaves. In terms of an appraisal of the last twelve months they have had a stellar year by virtually anyone's standards bar possibly Adele. Since forming barely three years ago Slaves (Laurie Vincent and Isaac Holman) have taken everything in their stride and blown all before them away with their unique, incendiary, 21st Century Punk.

Slaves - Are You Satisfied? (BBC Radio 1 Session) Album Review

The duo from Royal Tunbridge Wells have not so much been a breath of fresh air as a veritable whirlwind delivering a torrent of wired, barely tamed, electrified energy. After releasing their first three singles in 2014, 'Where's Your Car Debbie', 'Hey' and then their breakthrough track, 'The Hunter', Slaves have barely had time to catch a breath. A 'Sound of 2015' nod, 'Later with Jools' appearance, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, T-In The Park, numerous awards, an album release in June and a Mercury nomination amongst others have helped bring them to a much wider audience.

Upon its original release in the early summer 'Are You Satisfied?' peaked in the album charts at a very respectable #8 and went on to appear on many a critic's, and fan's, 'Top albums of the year list'. The album has now been given a fresh lease of life with this latest, much enhanced, incarnation. There are nine extra tracks including R1 session tracks and B-Sides as well as an unreleased track, 'Tricky'.

Jamie T - Rock City, Nottingham, November 2014 Live Review


While the majority of the time support acts at gigs are merely background music, sometimes there can be pleasant surprises. Tonight at Rock City it is one such occasion as there is an interesting prospect supporting Jamie T.

Jamie T - Live Review

Slaves are an up and coming noise band that you wouldn't usually associate with Jamie T. They are two cheeky fellas from London, who came on stage with the biggest band logo signs that you can actually fit into Rock City. When the duo kicked into action, you noticed two things: the noise, and the fact that there are only two of them making all that noise.

Although it was great to see these guys on stage, there was an initial sense of what have these guys got different to other bands like them? Royal Blood have already burst onto the scene to much acclaim, so Slaves need that something extra - and they certainly deliver. Live, Slaves are full of high energy and have a bit of comedy value about them both in the songs and in between songs. 'Girls Fight' was a great short witty number; so short, in fact, that the band's introduction of the song was actually longer than the song itself. Highlights of Slaves' set list have to be 'Debbie Where's Your Car? ' and 'Cheer Up London'. Certainly a band to keep an eye out for.
