So, I’ve been racking my brain to try to work out the best way to piece together the appropriate words detailing the intense, organised carnage that was last Saturday night inside the walls of The Croxton Bandroom, where a sold-out crowd was bludgeoned for over three hours by some of the best and renowned grind […]
