1 year ago / 0 comments

Future of the Left’s show at the Brudenell this Friday was possibly the greatest gig that I’ve attended thus far in Leeds, and I can say that without a hint of exaggeration. Musically, the set was contained a bit of the band’s earlier, electronic-influenced work, but was largely a mix … Read More
