I do not know where I was in february 1989. I was 11, what did I know about Music so far? But in Amsterdam, the 24th Feb 1989, it was a fucking blasting night at The Melkweg venue, because My Bloody Valentine was on stage, touring to promote Isn't Anything LP. The tracklist performed is simply awesome, fiercely beautiful. And the last track, Lovelee Sweet Darlene, is one higher step over the original recording (blending The Cramps, J&MC and a surf version of Ramones), a massive sound tsunami.
And I still think that Colm Ó Cíosóig is a fucking underrated drummer, human metronome/drum machine. Wild beast. Maybe, only Simon Scott of The Charlottes era could pair with him, in my usless opinion. My Bloody Valentine never been only Kevin Shields, I believe: if you see their live shows, it is soon clear they are all pieces making a unity. Perfect. And thanks for sharing.
