Glastonbury 2015 Retrospective - Sunday's Highlights and Lowlights

Sunday's Highlights 1. Patti Smith - Horses Patti Smith's set on the Pyramid Stage was one of the highlights of the whole weekend.

Those in the vast crowd in the summer sun were privileged to hear a true legend at her acerbic and erudite best. Show More Summary

The Elephant In The Room

Ook and the Elephant From: Bolton, England In a long and not very celebrated history of really bad band names Ook and the Elephant is not quite in the same league as Dumpys Rusty Nuts and Toad the Wet Sprocket. However, take a listen...Show More Summary


Vant From: London, England Parasite from London newcomers Vant sounds like The Strokes with any hint of insouciance replaced with a punky intensity and a rocket up their arse. It's a ballistic missile aimed straight at the bland city trader music that drips from the mainstream radio stations like bin juice. Show More Summary

Sound as a Pound

Ezra Sound From: Another planet The idiosyncratic punky Fly Eye from the mysterious Ezra Sound is easily the strangest track I've stumbled upon this year. It's an odd little Kafkaesque tale of an eye turning into an insect and flying around the room and it sounds like a chaotic uncontrolled Cramps sharing studio space with the Ramones. Show More Summary

Tones Deaf

The Graveltones From: London, England via Australia Never Let You Go from London based antipodean duo The Graveltones sounds like the missing link between The White Stripes and Royal Blood that musical archaeologists have been searching for. Show More Summary

Bang On

Flash Bang Band From: Brighton, England I've been following the ascent of Brighton's fun loving wonky pop meisters Flash Bang Band since they first introduced themselves to my ears in 2009 (Jumping Jack Flash, Flash Bang Wallop). I'm glad to hear that six years since they first featured on the blog they're still in fine fettle. Show More Summary

Faith Healey

Healey Island From: Cornwall, England The End of History from Cornish based left-field electronic musicalist Greg Healey, aka Healey Island sounds like a lo-fi downbeat Divine Comedy. It might be a couple of years old but it's recently...Show More Summary

Sharks Attack

The Sharks From: Brixton, London, England The Price Is Right from The Sharks is catchy old school punk rock that'll give your ears a good old clear out. It sounds like The Damned having a fist fight with the Lurkers in a phlegm flecked pub basement. Show More Summary

Fresh Sounds 6th June 2015

This Charming Woman

Flo Morrissey From: London, England Delicate as a porcelain angel London singer songwriter Flo Morrissey serves up melodies so sublimely subtle you don't realise they've captured your soul until you find yourself humming them days later. Melancholy never sounded so beautiful. Listen Visit Flo Morrissey - Facebook : Website See Flo Morrissey Pages of Gold
