I knew it would be worth the trip. It's just a shame that a few more people didn't. I'm talking about the brilliant Maps gig which I was fortunate enough to witness at Fibbers in York last Friday. I always find it quite embarassing when a band has to play in front of an extremely dissapointing crowd. It's safe to say however that the sparce audience did not reflect the sounds produced on stage. Maps were simply sublime. Fed on a diet of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Spiritulized etc. Maps mainman James certainly knows how to create a sound capable of removing paint from the walls. The band release their new single "Don't Fear" through Last Space Recordings on 30th October and have a few gigs coming up. Get off your ass and get to the gig. You won't be dissapointed.
