Half of Fighting Boredom headed for the Arches Venue last Wednesday for what promised to be a night of metal, psychedelia and general mayhem judging from the band’s names. Read what we thought below.
So tonight has perhaps the most lunatic bunch of band names I’ve seen sharing a bill for many a year, possibly the last merging of titles like this contained the mighty Ozric Tentacles but then that would have been a while back now. I’ve come without the trusty Fighting Boredom photographer so I feel only half here, it’s strange. The word is that Charles Dexter Ward’s guitarist is stuck by Luton on the M1. Anyone who has read anything I have written about Mr Ward and his Imagineers will know my feelings about them and I’m fairly sure that being in a van on the M1 was just a cover story for glitches in the band’s time machine. He may well be stuck by Luton but I doubt the M1 has even been built yet, or humanity as we know it exists, he’s in the primordial forests hunting for the origin of the psychedelic gods.
