Earplug manufacturers across the nation were rejoicing yesterday at the news that elusive noise-pop giants My Bloody Valentine have announced a rare string of UK dates. Tickets for the group’s March 12 Hammersmith Apollo sold out within an hour sadly, but they’ve announced a second date at the same venue the day after. If you have a strong desire for early onset tinnitus we recommended getting in quick. For the uninitiated, MBV are famous for ending their sets with a section they refer to as the ‘holocaust’, which is just as ear-destroyingly loud as its name implies. Eddy Frankel
