Coming on stage like a "punked up" Faces with a slice of Zeppelin and Jimi on guitar, the Metro Riots' swagger is hard to ignore and fast to impress. Brutal and dirty, these sneering South London bluesmen recently ram-raided their way into support slots with Dirty Pretty Things and The Charlatans. A bowel-trembling live prospect, mixing Delta blues with a cute line in messy punk riffs that is sure to leave you 'dazed and in love' – NME.

"We sing our version of the blues. We're influenced by the likes of Leadbelly, Blind Willie McTell and then The Stooges, New York Dolls, even Oasis." – DAMO
