I couldn’t pass this one up – going to another country to see a band from across the Atlantic, one of my favorites at the moment. Sure going to another country was actually just crossing the tunnel to Canada, but since the band was Malory, I would have gone to Mexico to see them! Their sound, which blends early 90’s shoegazing (a la Slowdive) with modern mechanics and technology, is instantly engaging. That said, I was really surprised that hardly anybody showed up!
Malory was playing shows in North America this year as part of the Alison Records tour, that included Skywave, Mellonova, and about five other bands. They played in Windsor, Ontario, at a place called The Diesel Lounge – somewhere that Ratt or Poison likely played at the week before.
