Droning on

Dylan Carlson is notable for pioneering drone metal in the early 1990s with his band Earth. If you didn’t know that but still recognise his name, you probably know him as the best friend of Kurt Cobain. (Carlson bought the shotgun.)

I saw him perform at St John on Bethnal Green last week. I ate a bag of Pinballs, as is my ritual. Here is a photo — of the gig, not the sweets.
