...A massive highlight for me was THE HARBINGERS DRUM CREW on the main stage on the Saturday. I stood with Nicki D’Arc (Twistettes) and we watched in slack-jawed amazement at this unbelievable band. My long-time friend Damo has been in Sambayabamba for many years and I’ve followed them around and seen them hundreds of times. So imagine my surprise, when their evil twin took to the stage at Audiosoup. Seriously, if you were to make a supervillain to SYB’s superhero, it would be The Harbingers. Clad in black kilts and dark garb and demonic facepaint, they played some of the most amazing samba I have ever heard. Largely because it was the heavy metal of samba, literally, they incorporated heavy metal predominantly into their sound. They were probably the best thing I’ve seen in ages, inciting me to mosh, dance and skank as they churned out drum and bass, dubstep and metal through a dozen or more drummers! Move over SYB, The Harbingers just stole my heart...
