FUTURE DAYS (Birmingham The Crossing, 20/10/19)
Went to Brum to see some bands, and can report it was bloody brilliant. Apart from Jane Weaver, whose Sadier-esque dream-pop didn't really seem to fit, every act on the line-up knocked it out of the park, from the "Metric meets MBV" noise-pop of the Claque, to Black Country New Road's post-everything epics, to Flamingods' Bahrani psych odysseys, to Bo-Ningen's unabased noisemongering to the stronking dance party of The Comet Is Coming. Best line-up of the year, for sure.
