Live Footage: Steve’n’Seagulls “Thunderstruck” at The Knitting Factory 9/18/19

Steve ‘n’ Seagulls is a Finnish act, comprised of Irwin Remmel, Pukki Kaalinen, Puikkonen, Hermann and Wild Till Hiltunen that has received attention across Scandinavia and elsewhere for bluegrass-like renditions of well-known metal and hard rock songs, including this amazing cover of AC/DC‘s “Thunderstruck,” which has amassed over 88 million streams on YouTube. Interestingly, much like Gangstagrass does with hip-hop, Steve ‘n’ Seagulls make a vital connection between bluegrass and metal and hard rock, reminding listeners that they all essentially come from the same source.

The Finnish act was recently on a lengthy North American tour that included a stop at The Knitting Factory last night with ClusterPluck. Check out some live footage of the band performing their signature rendition of AC/DC, shot from my trusty iPhone X.
