Even Less

Review of Porcupine Tree live at the Palace Theatre, Melbourne, 25 April 2008

It's Friday night. While everybody else is out probably doing something cool, I'm sitting here about to write some piece on the Kant-inspired democratic peace thesis. It could be worse, I suppose; I am at least going to write it while enjoying a shoegazer kick. My Bloody Valentine were always over-rated, really; Ride are where it's at if you want quality shoegazing and I would consider the Nowhere album - rather than MBV's kind of samey Loveless - to be definitive of the genre.

And, of course, I'm also reflecting on where I was a week ago. I think it's about time I put down some detailed thoughts on Porcupine Tree's concert in Melbourne.
