The Charlatans I first saw The Charlatans waaaaaaayyy back in 1990 on a bleak Wednesday night, in Leeds at some tiny little club which housed 1000 people tops. Halcyon days. They'd literally just released 'The Only One I Know' and Tim Burgess was an impressionable floppy haired twenty three year old with mahoosive lips. They oooozed enthusiasm, potential and passion before what has now been a 25 year journey into the glorious world of the music industry. Interspersed in this last quarter century are colossal performances like Knebworth in 96 (Oasis) and a headline slot at Scotland’s T in the Park when they were bang on top of their game.

Bombay Bicycle Club It’s been two years since Bombay Bicycle Club graced Wolverhampton with their presence, and the marked change in sound and pace since their 2011 album ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ was pretty evident tonight, playing a set mostly comprising of their newer, heavier, electro and in parts R&B influenced material from their latest album ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’. Things have certainly evolved for this London 4-piece, with each of their 4 albums carrying the progression of UK indie with them, and who seem to be one of the most inventive indie bands around right now.

Arctic Monkeys It started quietly, overnight. One YouTube upload, one tweet, one Facebook post. The Arctic Monkeys unleashed ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ and took over 2013. It continued on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. Drum beats and the opening of a guitar riff silencing the critical anticipation and hype. The deal was sealed with the unveiling of ‘AM’; Arctic Monkeys were back and ready to be bigger than ever.
