Goodbye, Mint Club

March 7, 2019

I need to stop going to gigs on acid. Well, I don’t, because it’s brilliant, but I probably should when I intend to review them objectively because it makes everything sound so completely different. Tunes sound four dimensional. Mixing on acid is either awesome or impossible. But anyway, I digress… I’d not actually even been … Read More
