Well it was only a matter of time.
When the announcement went out earlier this year that there would be an extra All Tomorrow's Parties in February 2005, curated by the almighty Slint everyone who couldn't get down to Camber Sand (and some who could) crossed their fingers that they would play a warm-up show somewhere in the capital.
And, here it is...except it's after ATP.
More of a warm-down gig then, but who the hell cares as long at it's a gig?
The performace, Slint's first London appearance in 13 years, will be at the Forum on March 1. Tickets are on sale now.
