Call of the Wild Festival add Those Damn Crows & Hands Off Gretel to Kilmister main stage!

Those Damn Crows & Hands Off Gretel added to Kilmister main stage at Call of the Wild Festival.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Lincolnshire’s Biggest Rock Festival, Call of the Wild, add, arguably the hottest british breakthrough rock band since massive wagons took the UK by storm, Those Damn Crows to their Main stage. Recently ripping up the UK alongside Stone Broken, the welsh rockers, who are signed to Earache records are delighted to be a part of Call of the Wild’s inaugural year.

Those Damn Crows have been brought in to replace Aussie rockers Massive who are very disappointed to have been forced to withdraw due to circumstances beyond their control. While making every effort possible, Massive reluctantly informed COTW organisers that they were now unable to make the trip over in May.

With the sudden and very unexpected announcement last week that Digital Criminals had called it a day, and with immediate effect, ended the band, COTW booker Raz White was quick to snap up another fantastic band who have created quite the buzz about themselves over recent months. Hands Off Gretel drink deep from the well of 90s grunge. A riotous tangle of bubblegum riffs & rebel girl swagger, COTW remain determined to bring the strongest line up of bands to all stages.

Call of the Wild Festival takes place at Lincolnshire Showground between 24th – 26th May & includes The Wildhearts, Hardcore Superstar & The Virginmarys headlining main outdoor KILMISTER stage. Rocky Shades’ Wrathchild, Speed Stroke & Witch Tripper headline the Cloven Hoof stage. Syteria, Ducking Punches & The Human Project headline the Badlands Festival stage.

Over 60 bands covering a vast array of genres; Rock, Punk & Alt-Metal.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
