They're more of a thing than ever, obviously. Despite the quality of their albums plummeting recently, it's difficult to argue with their popularity - Tet says Brixton Academy wasn't sold out last year, well I can say if it wasn't sold out, then it was damn close. Plus a top 20 UK album, and massively popular with the BOA crowd.
After attending the awesome Brutal Assault fest last year, I can't see my self heading back to BOA anytime soon, and this fun but safe and bland booking hasn't changed that.
