Where they played one of their final shows of 2005 supporting the mighty Capdown with help from their friends in $up. Combining influences from Hardcore, Ska, Punk, and Funk and from bands such as The Blue Meanies, Capdown, Link 80, Primus, Ye Wiles and American Nightmare. The band focuses on songs that sound dark and on social issues that concern them. Weightloss have developed their brand of: Dark Raw Passionate Drug Addled Ska and will take it as far as the petrol in their tanks will take them plus how ever further they can manage to get after that... Foot of a mountain! 2005 really shook expectations of what was possible upon landing shows at The Astoria in London and then at the Bulldog Bash, organised by the Hells Angels! With some hard work and help from the UK unsigned crew Weightloss were able to score these pretty sweet gigs, which in turn were partly responsible for the momentum thats been building since. Fine Wine! In 2006 they stepped it up another perpetual notch in true Weightloss fashion: bending a steamy fresh pile of turd all over their previous accomplishments and scored themselves a deal with Spiky Black Cat Records of London. This set the tone for an eagerly anticipated year ahead! So in April ‘06 having recorded a 2 track single – A taste of what was to come – Weightloss set out on the first stretch of their spring/summer tour welcoming Dave on trombone and our new found friends A Billion Ernies from California to the UK with help from mutual friends The Junglists. What doesn’t kill ya! Certainly the path to stardom was less of a path and more of a rocky road where this bitchin’ gang of fags are concerned.
Nevertheless this year was possibly one of the most exiting and productive years yet - in every sense. Indeed gaining insight into their true natures as individuals and finding out how exactly to cope with such group dynamics has taught them a lot. So, well drunk, well learned and not so well fed; Weightloss are set to come back even bigger and stronger than ever before, and by the time all the Christmas turkeys have made their way back to the waste processing plant at the Thames valley water co. Our thoughts are just noise shall be upon us; boasting 14 tracks, polished with mud and containing their loveliest licks and most luscious lines yet.
Who knows what will happen In the coming months. For better or worse though weightloss have made their mark and should all learn to cheer the fuck up, you’ve done it lads, life Is good, music is paramount! – Enjoy it! That goes for you too!
