Rabidfest 2022: Breaking Down The Bands #7: Footprints In The Custard!
As we’ve reached episode #7 if you’re reading this then you probably already know that it’s feature that serves to introduce the lesser lights of heaven on the undercard below the headliners of Rabidfest 2022 which will take this November at The Bullingdon in Oxford, a two day festival in a night club that can not be missed. So without any further much ado about nothing, let’s skip the deeper introduction and get to the reason that you’re reading this nonsense in the first place. Footprints In The Custard.
“How do you know when an elephant has been in your fridge? Footprints in the Custard!”
That’s right. Manchester Award-winning Party Metal quintet Footprints In The Custard are a band who built their castles in the sand when they named themselves after the punchline of a terrible joke… but when it comes down to brass tacks their name actual sums them up quite nicely. Ever heard the phrase “it was so bad it’s good“? When it comes to their lyrics that ruminate on themes like genitalia, bodily functions, heavy drinking and sexually active bears you might get the picture. They’re the kind of Thrash Punk Metal explosion you listen to and laugh but probably not put on in the car on a first date or when you’ve just collected your Grandparents from the train station. After all, they’ve got cuts with titles like “Willies Are For Weeing“, “Oh God, It’s Warm” and “Don’t be a C***” in their armoury, spreading the love like an STD over a trio of albums and a pair of EPs since their questionable inception in 2017.
Sonically, they specialise in writing heavy yet catchy music to fuel that tongue in cheek humour that makes the likes of Municipal Waste blush so their presence at Rabidfest should not only bring out the Moshers but also the sing-a-long banter as fans find themselves saying things about their Grandmothers that would never be uttered in another other context. Expect elaborate stage costumes, inflatables, bright lights and maybe even a Mankini or tutu as they bring the party with “Barren Fields Of F***s” described as “some audio sauciness” from Jakk Perkins at Second Star Audio (Evil Scarecrow). They’ve shared stages with more bands than we can shake a stick at and have a reputation for a slick live show. Need we say anymore? Get yourself a ticket!
