Favours For Sailors Split

Yup it's all official and on proper websites, Favours For Sailors have split. I booked the band earlier this month and they said it was on the cards, a real shame. I will remember the band for their indie pop tunes, just real fun, day brightening stuff!

Tough Love are releasing a tape of demos that never saw the light of day, only 100 copies at £3 and can be bought here.

To avoid gushing i will keep this one short...Was at Hyde Park on Friday for Blur, a band who i never thought i would get the chance to see live but thankfully i was proved wrong with this years reunion tour.

The band were on top form on the evening, even in the vast and potentially inpersonal surroundings of Hyde Park it was a really electric night. The band tore through loads of tracks from the obvious Song 2, Park Life, There's No Other Way style material to the less so like a personal fave Oily Water.

Track of the night goes to Out Of Time, amazing vocals, tender guitar and touching sentiment. It just summed up the nights precious feel - you really are seeing one of the best bands ever!...Ok a bit of gushing there!
