Live review: Monster Magnet / Orange Goblin / Scorpion Child
Venue: Forum, London
US space lords reactivate the time machine
Kicking off a night of high-grade stoner rock are Texas’s SCORPION CHILD .
Their crisp, clean guitar riffs and Aryn Jonathan Black’s stellar voice pierce through the psychedelic fog as they deliver an animated set that evokes the likes of Zeppelin and Free while still sounding modern.
ORANGE GOBLIN  can barely conceal their glee at supporting one of their heroes. As they tear into their grooviest live favourites, their infectious energy spills over into the crowd as the towering Ben Ward eggs them on in his booming rasp, lubricating his vocal chords with beer between songs.
