Meeting Fred Durst


Last Friday I caught up with Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit, ahead of the final UK date of the 2014 Kerrang! tour. We talked about building the perfect Bizkit setlist, the two new albums they have in the pipeline (Stampede of the Disco Elephants and The Unbeliveable Truth Part 2) and breakdancing on stage!

Talking of Limp Bizkit, I’m looking forward to heading to Last Resort next weekend – a club night that certainly likes its nu-metal. If you missed my blog from last summer you can check it out here.

Elsewhere, I’ll be heading to the Garage this weekend to catch Manchester’s finest Sonic Boom Six – who I haven’t seen do a headline show in literally years. They totally destroyed the crowd at Warped Tour last November – with Laila performing the last track on top of a security guard’s head! If you like your music heavy with lots of rapping, screaming and breakdowns, make sure you get there early and catch The One Hundred opening things up.

I’ll also be checking out the new Lamb Of God documentary, As The Palaces Bun, which is out in cinemas today.

’40 million records later, I’m still the man’


Whether you’re ‘down with the Bizkit’ or not, and it’s quite possible that you’re not, there’s no denying the fact that Limp Bizkit still being in existence is quite something. This is especially true when you consider that they haven’t really released anything half-decent since 2003, and the clue was in the title when it came to that particular record Results May Vary.

Regardless, their live performances, especially now with added nostalgia, are frankly incredible. Their gig at Brixton Academy in May last year was perhaps the best event of last year, and their mid-afternoon performances at Download and Sonisphere in 2009 provided two of the most fun, and believe it or not, diverse, moshpits I’ve ever had the privilege to run around inside.

This latest track features Lil’ Wayne and with its heavy riff, chest-beating lyrics and hip-hop swagger looks set to become the first moshpit staple since 2003’s Eat You Alive. Check out the video below to see Fred Durst rapping on the toilet.
