Legendary Providence noise rock duo Lightning Bolt are preparing to tour European festivals this summer and are reissuing their first four albums on Thrill Jockey.

Fuzz Clubs split series has become essential buying recently, with number five in the series featuring Texas Psych godfathers The Black Angels and Italian Psych rockers Sonic Jesus and for number six they’ve really surpassed themselves, inviting two of the greatest noise rock bands on the planet – New York City’s A Place to Bury …
