It's filtered from my view. Can you sum up what the website says?

DisGuys, local to the Reading area, play their own brand of Heavy Rock & Roll with a thumping beat and big harmony vocals.

Review of their last gig:


Scary thing is there are 4 guys in the band and it sounds like they have a chick singer.

From the sound of it, you'll hate them. Nills, Shakey, Debaser and I will love them. Think 80s road movie soundtrack/Van Halen when they were good.

I'll go if between every song we can shout "IT ISN'T THE 80's ANYMORE!", and "GIVE UP THE DREAM!".

06-02-2003, 15:52:55
We can shout that if you want.

They are the kind of band that Sonic Undermind are in Nills' head.

They have the worst name of any band ever.

What he means is "Think 80s triumph-over-adversity,-probably-set-in-a-small-town-or-possibly-college movie soundtrack - Bon Jovi/Poison when they were at their hairiest"

I'm there. :beer:

OK, that's a fair summary of their first song, when I was writing that I was listening to Wish You Were Dead.

06-02-2003, 16:43:48
I only listened to the first song. I'll download the others now...

I remember when...

I wish You Were Dead - recorded underwater and through a mattress? Shite production. Were the drums recorded in a different town?

Nice hair though.

Song is ok, it has definate 80's rock ie classic Iron Maiden doubled guitar riffs followed by Scorpions guitar middle section. As a kid of the 80's I quite like it.

Just one more question - do they sell lighters as part of their merchandise, in order for gig goers to hold them up at the appropriate points?

That was one of the best gigs I've been to. Those mp3s don't do them justice at all.

My cheeks still hurt.

Amazing, brilliant performance

It may have been a little spinal tap, but what really came through was how much they enjoyed what they did, that really made the buzz.

The look of the band was brilliant - when the singer stripped off to reveal that stripey black and white sleeveless top i could have cried.

I also greatly enjoyed the cover of Black Sabbath's NIB and the furry sweatband that that amazing guitarist guy was wearing.

Ah, it was top stuff all round :beer:

Oh my God, it looks like Status Quo resurrected :eek:

07-02-2003, 17:33:32
Status Quo were never even close to being anywhere near as good as the mighty DisGuys. Similar white ladies half-boot trainers mind.

I can feel my stomach churning already :nervous:

We're not being ironic. They were genuinely awesome. On paper I should have hated them. In fact I was convinced I would.
