Slowdive set out on a short UK tour to promote their Holding Our Breath EP. Support was from Revolver.
Reviewing the opening show of the tour in Manchester, Simon Price wrote in Melody Maker: “Mercilessly perfect, and, er, effortlessly cool. If you can turn a blind ear to the enormous clichés they deal in, Slowdive can take you higher than the sun. By the time ‘Avalyn’ has destroyed my critical faculties, pearly dewdrops are dropping from the ceiling.”
