London's Diesel King have been a regular fixture on London's gig scene since their inception in 2010, but somehow i've managed to miss them until tonight.

Credit where credit’s due; lesser bands would have taken the easy route and pulled out of the event. But Cerebral Bore have rightly earned their status as one of the hardest working bands in the underground today, managing to incite a bigger pit than most bands could muster all day.
