Carl Byron Batson caught the London leg of their UK tour at the O2 Academy, Islington. In his own words:
“I thought it was just another mundane metally Islington multi band bash with watered-down beer and a biker rally type of crowd. You know the scene.
Things were OK until Massive Wagons took the stage. Now I just feel dirty, used and unable to leave the house.”
