Xrayhorse 9 – Buffalo Bones, Wot Gorilla?, Death Rays and Dead Sons

Unprofessional behaviour gets you to Bristol for free

Note: The following excuse of  a review covers the  Children for Breakfast show at the Harley where the following bands played: Killing Fields of Ontario, No Kids, Mount Eerie. This is a verbatim transcription of a text conversation between the reviewer and his co-editor. Both will be fired shortly if they don’t change their behaviour. Apologies to bands and organisers. The show was good, it’s our reviewers who are shit.

Thanks

The Management.

From the desk of Quintana “Quinto” Haberno:

Coeditor supremo diary, Sunday 4th of April: I woke up in a strange place (Bristol). I was in Sheffield last night. How I ended up here? Why do I have a red sweater that smells of elderberries? And why is my mobile’s screen smashed up to bits? All good questions and because of a court injunction I can’t disclose all of them…still. I get into an internet café and I get in contact with a fella I write with.
