The First Time I Heard My Bloody Valentine

I have an essay in the collection The First Time I Heard My Bloody Valentine (Rosecliff Press, 2014) edited by Scott Heim, which recounts the first time I saw them live (opening for Dinosaur Jr. in 1992). Other people in the book include folks like Bob Mould, members of Slowdive, Pale Saints, God is an Astronaut, Maps, Failure, and dälek. Other bands in the series include David Bowie, Kate Bush, The Smiths, Cocteau Twins, Joy Division/New Order, Abba, Kraftwerk, R.E.M., The Pixies, and Roxy Music, with more in the works.
