No Hens In Sight

Have you played with the ‘Randy Rooster’ yet? It’s an online game by Rooster’s label used to promote them. You have to ‘interact’ with all 10 hens as quickly as possible. Considering that he is the randy rooster – you can guess what I mean by interact. Until today this was my only experience of Rooster.

Another question. What’s your average bassline? You just follow the root notes and play some low frequencies that give a bit more oomph – right? Maybe, but that’s not how it should be.

From Randy Rooster, which uses their new single as a backing track – you are expecting to see a band that will fill your ears with meaningless pop. That turns out not to be the case.

Rooster walk out on stage to a crowd of less than twenty. It’s not surprising – nobody has heard of them and this is their first ever festival performance.

By the time that their new single is played live, you realise that Rooster are a force to be reckoned with – not the pop act that one might assume from their online game. They have basslines that leave you wanting more and energy that would put Battersea power station to shame.


Leaving the crowd in pure awe, the set finished with a man to my side saying ‘they will be the best band we see all weekend’. He might just be right.
