Live – Slug Money at Acapulco Bar

Slug Money, Acapulco Bar Portsmouth, 20th December 2019

We get lots of feedback on Breaking Glass saying that people use the site to find new music so here’s a little early Christmas present for you…

Slug Money are born from the depths of the Portsmouth music scene, a relatively small area which nonetheless boasts several growing festivals and a host of independent venues. With a chaos filled performance split between the stage and the crowd and an assault by a wall of vociferous guitars and drums, Slug Money are not a band you’ll forget easily, or want to. They have an energy reminiscent of early Stooges with some added humour and, as Iggy Pop himself once said, ‘What some people would call antics I would just call a good show’. Despite the disarray, make no mistake that their ability is assured given their past ventures – if you’ve ever chanced upon Melt Dunes, Make Them All Smile or Violet Mud then you’ll be pleased to see some familiar faces back in action. Having already supported the likes of Japanese TV, Flamingods and The Wants, things look pretty auspicious for the band. Keep an eye out for live dates and prepare for your senses to be whipped.

Here’s our gallery from their set at Acapulco Bar on Friday…
