"Once again the trek into Tottenham Court Road and the ever personal and intimate Borderline to see German psych campaigners SBE. This is a band that seem to have been around for ever and a band that have been a major part in consolidating the German stoner scene (with Colourhaze) as one of the premier scenes in the world in recent years. So it is with quite a bit of excitement and interest that I head into this one. Also a fair amount of concern as the laid back "I'll get tix on the door" approach encounters a wobble when one website claims it is sold out. As a result I arrive early and my fears are put quickly to rest which however works hugely in my favour as tonight SBE is also supported by two bands that I have quite interested in seeing. Birmingham's Alunah and Stubb! Having seen Stubb once before I was keen to seem them again and Alunah is a band I have seen on plenty of other gig posters so interest was spiked. Bypassing a chilly red stripe at the crowbar (get one after) I settle into Alunah's set. Huge sound, droning heavy riffs and a overall great set which got the HUGE early crowd in the mood. Definitely a band I will be checking out in the near future".
