As the giant door of the Jager Haus stage slides back, the remarkable Snapped Ankles emerge as only they can, tree loving warlocks!
Their blend of The Fall and motorik fires and swirls around the small stage with a tenacious flair not seen anywhere else at Citadel. The epic ‘Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berling’ rumbles along like the purist of post-punk outsiders.
The vocal on ‘Director’s Nostalgia’ is pure Mark E Smith but, more overwhelming is their sense of Flaming Lips fun. The big riffs roar almost sarcastically which inspire people to dance like no one’s watching and, this, is inherently what Snapped Ankles are all about.
