3 Chords Festival - Penzance
Molly Bloom played an amazingly diverse mix of styles, from gypsy punk to Sabbath-y doom but the sum total of the ingredients was a really captivating and motivating set, fully of strident energy. Will be searching out some of their stuff for sure.

Last week my copy of the new Molly Bloom CD, All Pressure , arrived in the post. I had been overjoyed by their performance when the opened the main stage on Sunday at Foad Fest, and so I was really looking forward to this. It's awesome. A mix of ska, punk, folk, and power metal with classical guitar and passages on the flute, this is one of the most interesting and appealing albums I've ever listened to. The songs are just beautiful, and the musicianship is superb. “Mistress Winter,” the catchiest tune I've heard in a long while.
Listen to them! Listen to them this very instant! They were really, really good. It takes balls to open a day of extreme metal with a flute.

Molly Bloom threw a heap of exotic ingredients into the mix, blasting out a unique folk / punk / medieval / metal sound that sets them apart from the hordes of bands intent on being the next Sabbath, or whoever. Playing cheekily with various genres to drive out their own special sound.
Subversive and truly original sounding they are a wicked party band and would really suit a festival environment

To spice things up, the Ladybird Tent host their final act, Molly Bloom , a band with a fascinating line-up (flute, classical guitar, drums and bass). As Molly Bloom are especially unique it seems churlish to compare them to any other act, but there are hints of New Model Army and Jethro Tull poured into a bucket of prog and grunge with a gypsy folk and reggae seasoning. It's exciting, powerful stuff, as the motoring mix of stalwart fans and animated newcomers lap up the dexterity of the guitarist and the snarling melodies of their singer.
