    Blerghhh, didn't know they'd broken up! Feel privileged to have seen them twice. It could be the 8 billion basses they had, but they were a total force live. Lump in the throat powerful. Melodious, clear-sounding and yet bone-shatteringly loud at the same time. The kind of tone that transfixed you live. Big loss! Time to spin Distal on repeat again.

    \/ maybe they could even get radio airplay then. which would be good. I mean, I can imagine Opener or Interiors playing on the radio.
