REVIEW: My Bloody Valentine @ Electric Brixton (27/01/13)

It’s been five years since I last saw My Bloody Valentine live, and I’ve only just managed to recover the last fragments of earplug mined from my brain after surviving their sonic assault at Camden’s Roundhouse back in 2008. Their 2013 return to the UK sees volume levels remain the same (watching MBV is like […]...More
