Shoegaze reboot live in London.

Slowdive reunited this week for their first gig in 19 years (not including a secret show at Sonic Cathedral the night before) at Village Underground.

FACT was in attendance and can confirm that hearing ‘When The Sun Hits’ live for the very first time is a transcendent moment indeed, as confirmed by a video that has just surfaced. YouTube user John Moore has edited audience footage from the performance and matched it with a decent quality audio bootleg courtesy of the @slowdivedb fan database, mastered by Andrew Rose.

Watch it above, catch up with Slowdive’s FACT mix and if you’ve got no idea why this is all so exciting, go straight to our Beginner’s Guide to Slowdive.
