“People” By Vvolves

“Strange Blood” By Vvolves.



Lucy Rose

We think Lucy Rose may well be the name on everyone’s lips this time next yea. She’s young beautiful and talented, everything we are not, but are we jealous ?  Well actually, yes!  And oh what a voice,  one that  needs to be risk assesed as it could quite literally  stop traffic, Lucy manages to sound world weary and yet refreshingly new. Which of course makes no sense but luckily her music does.

Jonny Cola & The A Grades.

The angular Mr Cola and his A-Grades return with new EP which showcases their refreshing  mix of  “Oxfam glam” (New genre alert  © -Von Pip ) and astute social commentary , imagine if Suede had read Marx ( Groucho and Karl Wink )

The Ep features …
