Bleech, Kulaks, Local Girls – The Square, Harlow

First time seeing Bleech, a band who I’ve been playing since their demos first surfaced online a few years ago.

I made sure I got down early for Local Girls’ set too. I interviewed both Bleech and Local Girls in the Square’s brilliantly large green room which has a great Pete Frame-style family tree of Essex bands in a big frame on the wall – something I could have read all night.

The Local Girls set was fantastic and there was a second support band, Kulaks, although I don’t remember a lot about them! Bleech were as good live as they’ve been on recent record releases, so it was great to see them in such a small venue. Sometimes a three piece band don’t quite get it right live – but you can see from the videos that their live sound is as beefed up as it is on record.
