Anyone heard of Random Hand?

I've seen them opening for Streetlight Manifesto some time back and absolutely loved it though I couldn't understand a word that was being said in between songs (that accent, it's a bitch). I just wanted to get them a bit more atention because I think they deserve it

Anyways, here's a link I think will please both ska and punk fans:

They're pretty cool, pretty similar to capdown which is good. I like it how they're on sonic boom six's label.

Random Hand are great. The big crime is that they always seem to open for Sonic Boom Sh*t, yet they always blow them away.

Not a hard thing to do, really.

Also saw them supporting SM and was pleasantly surprised. They've got some really great tunes. Couldn't understand a thing he said, either due to bad accent + cold

Yep, you know how it is. Everyone is always jizzing over themselves about SBExcrement, whereas the lads with the talent get overlooked.

I love Random Hand
I went to see them last week in Norwich, funnily enough!
It was pretty cool, they had one of my favourite local bands supporting aswell, so it was brilliant!

It was a pay what you want gig, because they were unable to play the past two shows they'd booked, which I thought was nice!
let these flat chords just break your heart...

I saw them the other night, and obviously, they're not as tight as they used to be, having just lost Dimmers who they played with for years. It definitely wasn't the best I've ever seen them, by a long shot.
I think once they find a drummer that they're used to, and play a lot of gigs with, they'll get back to being awesome though.

The hate for sonic boom six in this thread is immense, I thought more people would like them, i'll just go sit in the corner then. :\

Fair enough, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

In other random hand related news, I saw a photo of them for the first time and thought that they looked like a swedish metal band.
