Amidst growing personal suspicion that - despite Stokes Croft and all its related awesomeness - Bristol wasn't perhaps as 'buzzing' as I'd previously seen it in my mind, up step Holy Stain and blow that silly suspicion away with an almighty wall of noise.
Through driving tech-y drum beats and layers of guitar - ranging from intricate and plucky to heavily distorted, droning, and in your face fuzz - the Bristol four-piece give a bloody good go at the shoegazey post-rock sound. Given that, it was probably a little bit silly to miss them play a free gig the other night.
