Meet&Greet;

There was a huge turn out for their in-store set at Fopp in Manchester, and by huge I mean, if anyone else joined the queue, they would've been turned away. The whole crowd went crazy when they played 'Orthodox Man', the atmosphere was so elated. After the set (of about 8 songs or so), was the meet&greet/signing (I got my Kanken and the NME magazine signed), and they were incredibly lovely. After waiting behind until everyone left, the guys let us have a mini-photoshoot with them (which was an amazing experience). If you've never listened to Blaenavon start with 'Alice Come Home' it's a beautiful track.

NME only rated their debut album 3/5 stars, despite it being worth the full 5.
Read a review of their album on 'The Line Of Best Fit'.
