Punk Rock Factory. Possibly one of the more fun — and funniest — bands on the live music circuit, the foursome from South Wales brought The Sausage Factory to O2 Islington on Sunday night for the London leg of their ‘It’s Just A Phase We’re Going Through’ tour. Supported by the frenzied Adam and The Metal Hawks, whose incredible covers and originals alike have gotten a hell of an impressive following of their own, and DJ Matt Stocks (dressed as Gene Simmons!) providing some suitably Halloween-y between-set music, the night was as bonkers, barmy, and brilliant as anyone could ever want. Plus, they might not have had PR.UK cosplaying as the power rangers this time, but they brought Jason Paige on to sing the Pokémon Theme live on stage — what could be better?
