Over in Camden the last bands of Nightmare fest are crashing and banging hundreds of eardrums into dust, but across London at House Of Vans things are just getting started for the Crossfire Halloween party – featuring the return of The Motherfucking Cancer Bats! We went along to see what we could learn...
Cancer Bats, live in London
Venue: House Of Vans, London
Cancer Bats return to the Capital
It Wouldn't Be A Halloween Gig Without Some Sort Of Fancy Dress
Cancer Bats have truly thrown themselves into the spirit of things tonight. Giving us a taste of what the little Bats would have looked like when they were trick or treating around Toronto, Canada, the guys take to the stage in face paint decked out with blacked-up eyes and inverted crosses on their heads. A special mention to guitarist Scott Middleton who takes the first place in the costume competition with a gnarly goblin-troll-demon-type thing mask that makes it look like he's coming along straight after shredding alongside David Bowie in Labyrinth.
