I’ve always wanted to see Sunn O))) live, but so far it hasn’t happened. It’s not so much that I love their music (although I do), it’s more that I want to see if I can hack it. So many reviews I’ve read, and people I’ve spoken to, have recounted stories of audience members passing out, vomiting or just getting the hell out of there. The Earth-influenced wall of feedback and slow, doomy riffs they create are certainly not for the faint of heart. If you think you can take it, head over to Corsica Studios on Sunday, where they will be performing their ‘Grimm Robes’ album. Or you could hang on for the band’s new album, ‘Monoliths & Dimensions’, which will be released by Southern on 15 May. Right now, though, go and check out their Last.fm profile.
