If you’re thinking: “hey, I recognise those two from somewhere else” it’s because you probably do. Up until August of 2017 Matt and Tom were two fifths of Baby Godzilla – a band whose sound was only trumped in the insanity stakes by the fact that their name once landed them with a threatened law suit from the Japanese film and distribution company Toho.

Inside, US-newcomers Farro are preparing for a hypnotic set in support of[…]
