A respectably sized crowd filled the Cluny in anticipation of a night of raucous metal with American band Psychostick and Dog Fashion Disco. The bands are clearly enjoying the UK tour, for Psychostick, their first visit over here.
Dog Fashion Disco are a very talented group of musicians with music that shows possible influences as diverse as early Black Sabbath, Faith No More and Slayer. The variation in the music made it more than just metal, with jazz and ska making an appearance in some songs. Not content to just play on stage, Jason Stepp, guitarist, jumped into the crowd to create a mosh pit in the very polite audience. The throng had no choice but to be part of the gig. The many years of experience showed in this performance, and vocalist Todd Smith really has a versatile voice, flipping styles to fit the songs.
