Actually for me the Swans and Whitehouse were loud, but not as much as the Butthole Surfers in '87.

MIne could be them at the Hummingbird in Birmingham in '87 or maybe that was just cos I kept leaning into the bass bin to get more.

Can't really think outside of that. I think they were spectacularly loud at the time and were referring to the next tour as being acoustic because they became a bit quieter, then actually started using acoustic instruments on the following tour.

Also just reminded that I think somebody nicked a tshirt of mine at the Hummingbird show that I'd taken off and put in a shelf somewhere. Only thing was it was a shirt from my uncle's Kenyan life insurance company so wonder how fast that got dumped.

I've seen MBV, Loop, Swans, Sunn O))), Motorhead etc, but the one that sticks with me as just unbearably painfully loud was a show by a local punk band called Flatpig at the Freebutt pub in Brighton in the late 90s. Also, they were shit.
