Upstairs in Tiny Rebel at the 2018 Cardiff Psych Fest, Bob Vylan performed for the proverbial one man and his dog but still gave it their absolute all. Four years on, our homegrown Rage Against The Machine are all grown up and have graduated to Clwb (and a sold-out gig) via a trio of EPs and support slots with The Offspring and Biffy Clyro.

Blunt, in-your-face new album Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life addresses austerity and the cost of living crisis, as well as structural racism and violence. He Sold Guns and Pretty Songs boast belligerent choruses Idles would kill for, Health Is Wealth preaches the value of keeping yourself fighting fit, and the gammon-baiting Take That – on which Bobby Vylan quotes Chuck D’s dissing of Elvis and fantasises about wiping his arse on a St George’s flag and throwing Churchill’s statue into the river – asks “Are you with them or are you with us? Pick a side”. Not a hard choice.
