THE TICKETS HAVE BEEN WON! BUT YOU CAN STILL BUY SOME HERE: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/122815

We have been raving a lot about the new Miracle Fortress album, Was I the Wave, for a while now. It really is one of the better, if not best, albums of the year with it’s dream pop landscapes infused with echoes of Krautrock and post-punk.  We are even more excited by the prospect of finally getting to see them live since it’s definitely a rare occasion; they are only playing one London show and we probably wont have a chance to catch them for another couple of years due to Van Pelt’s commitments in Think About Life. Luckily for you, the Mint readers, we have two pairs of tickets to their London show at White Heat! All you have to do is answer this question:

Miracle Fortress frontman Graham Van Pelt is a member of which other band?

Send your answers to marcus@mintmagazine.co.uk with the title ‘Miracle Fortress’

The rest of the line up looks pretty solid too and Mint’s one and only Tom Slater designed the flyer! Here is the facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140774646014166

And here are some videos:

I Ching are also very good and you should check them out but they don’t have any videos for us to embed…
