Qui, Palehorse, Ghold, @ Islington Mill, Salford

“Like giving birth to a child while killing the parents”.  Such was the typically poetic and apt summary from singer Nikolai of the news that dropped from on high like an Acme anvil that one of my favourite bands in Palehorse was calling it a day, while simultaneously releasing a final album.


A full ten years since I had first seen the two bass-ed expansive sludge behemoth in a village hall in the middle of nowhere, (review here) the Londonahs have delivered stunning, uncompromising live sets and dense, hypnotic releases to me throughout this time, and something among all the twisted wrongness was just right.  So I had to get my last dose, and even though I heard of this farewell tour with days to spare all came together to get me to sunny Salford.More
