The Computers at Reading Festival 2011 - review. We want your reviews too!


For a band going by the name The Computers, these guys are far from PC as they spit, cuss and scream their way through a riotous set of infectiously energetic songs and old school rock riffery.

Picture Buddy Holly with a Mohawk and a cigarette and you about have the size of the sound these boys emit with aggressive vocals and deafening drums over 50’s classic rock riffs.

An enthused but muddy crowd greet the band and their songs are received well to much pitting and head bobbing. Live they’re a phenomenon and not something that can be caught on record, sadly.

The final part of their set is performed exclusively from within the enraptured crowd, capping a great show.
