Premiere: Slaves – ‘Sockets’ (Live At The Scala)

Ferocious live rendition...

Slaves are, essentially, two men against the world.

Little more than drums, sweat, guitar and a helluva lot of ranting, the Kent duo storming the Top Ten with their debut album earlier this year.

A ferocious live proposition, Slaves recently played a packed out show at London's Scala venue. Thankfully, a camera crew was on hand to capture the bedlam – and Clash can preview a clip.

New single 'Sockets' is already an anthem amongst fans, and here it seems to seethe and writhe with a rare electricity. Pushed to the limit, Slaves decide to push back and makes for some enthralling punk rock.

Check out the performance below.
