LIGHTNING BOLT

BROOKLYN SOUND TOUR

It’s almost impossible to tally the sonic chaos unfurled at a Lightning Bolt gig with the shared moniker of the band’s two protagonists – Brian.

It’s almost impossible to tally the sonic chaos unfurled at a Lightning Bolt gig with the shared moniker of the band’s two protagonists – Brian. But we can only assume that the lives of these Brian’s has been an acid-laced trip through total aural carnage, the likes of which will possibly never be understood. Don’t even ask us how bassist Brian Gibson found the capacity to design and develop ‘rhythm violence’ game, Thumper. But still, questions abound… “Why??”, “What’s happening?”, and “WHY AM I HAVING SUCH AN AWESOME TIME!??”

In the latest of our hook-ups with Brooklyn ‘yeah we do beer, but we’ll also allow people to lose their minds at insane experimental rock gigs across the UK’ Brewery, we all got exposed to what one Facebook user called “duct-tape shit”, but what any still barely sane person present might describe as the ‘unrelentingly wild’ sonic assault of a Lightning Bolt show.

We can’t blame our “duct tape” user for offering such an assessment, or indeed even assume it a negative review. Up is down. White is black. Left is right, and OH MY GOD I CAN RELIVE IT HERE FOREVER!!!
