Let's Get Up

When you first hear Leeds based band Dinosaur Pile-Up you can't help but get excited. Like when your Mum used to give you a whole fifty pence piece and you would run as fast as your legs could take you to the corner shop and scream to the little old lady for every sherbert flying saucer under her roof. OK, well that's how excited I got. Without mentioning names, there are some really awful new music floating around at the moment but DP prove how much worthwhile talent is getting ignored. Frontman and multi-instrumentalist Matt Bigland is proving he is the full package both musically and lyrically with a voice to smack you back into T-Rex's giant jaws.

I was lucky enough to catch them on a short visit to Leeds in a tiny, half empty underground clubnight and they completely confirmed everything I have just said. Energetic, powerful and leaving the crowd wanting so much more...and that was only their first show. Someone pass the flying saucers please!

The lovely people at Fake DIY put DP in their Class Of 2008...and rightly so! Check out the interview with Mr Bigland. Class Of 2008 DP Interview
