If you haven’t read Preacher in the past, then AMC’s new adaptation may be a… bit hard to keep up with. The first episode alone was a brutal, blasphemous affair that introduced us to washed-out preacher Jesse, his ex, the nail-bomb-building Tulip and of course, drunken Irish vampire Cassidy.
I don’t go to as many gigs as I’d like to anymore, but even my rare descents into the Camden Underworld have shown me that something weird is happening to Britain’s metal scene. The NWOBHM is making a comeback.
