My Bloody Valentine 2020

My Bloody Valentine 2020 – 200 x 270cm, oil on canvas

I saw this band play many times in London during the nineties, they were incredibly loud, but what I enjoyed was trying to decipher which song they were playing while all the strange sounds coming from the amplifiers permeated the concert hall, at some point it would always fall into place. I do remember the track ‘You made me realize’ having a 10 to 15 minutes middle section of pure noise, something like an out of body experience happened to me, at the end of the track Colm Ó Cíosóig would be collapsed over his drum kit.
