Ready Steady Go!

Tuesday's can be boring in the city of Wolverhampton with every soul crammed in like sardines in the only pound a pint bar in town.
It's time for a change,so a new night 'Ready steady go' start's on the 29th September at Alchemy bar on North street.
Playing the best in Modernist,Psychedelic,60's pop,Motown,Northern Soul and Retro sounds.

The Twilight Sad - Forget The Night Ahead

The Twilight Sad released their follow up to their fantastic debut 'Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters' this week. Entitled 'Forget The Night Ahead' the Scottish group have got even darker and louder. The wall of noise is still their however it's beautiful contrasts with the addition of nostalgic sounding pianos, convention is also broken by 'Floorboards Under The Bed' which starts without an instrumentation just vocals. The lyrics are very dark and as James Graham explained it deal's with things he has got up to in the last couple of years that he is not proud of. A rare follow up that tops their acclaimed debut and moves them into darker territory.

Starlings of the Slipstream

You may have heard recently that Pavement are to re-form for a World tour next year.
This has to be with-out doubt possibly the best news i have ever read in my entire life while scrolling through the pages on Pitchfork website. According to the site their gigs over in the States have sold out with-in minutes,so no doubt the UK show's will do the same.
If you have no clue of the pure genius of the band you should start checking them out as soon as you read this.
Here are a few Videos of the Lo-fi kings
