It seems that Luke and Dave of speed metal combo Hot Bone never perform without their masks on, preferring – for some sordid reason – to disguise themselves as a fox and a sheep respectively. These two pictures were taken during rehearsals for the Lonely Creatures show at Manchester’s Green Room last Friday and offered merely to show what fine upstanding young men they actually are. It would take too long to explain what Dave is actually doing with that toy lamb but there is a good reason why its eyes have lit up. It was a real pleasure to work with Hot Bone – they were disciplined, quick and easy to get along with. And they reap the absolute whirlwind when they play. All hail the speed metal power duo for they shall lead us into green pastures!
