Rag'N'Bone Man (aka Rory Graham) has a holler like hot buttered rum. Loaded with disparate and cross generational influences, the sound of Rag'N'Bone Man is both hugely idiosyncratic and massively moving. He combines a purity of spirit with his unique brand of acoustic hip-hop soul into a force which is entirely his own. He is the real deal.

In the early Noughties, you could not escape the sight or sounds of these infectious modern-day punks. Whether dancing at Indie clubs, reading the NME or tuning into Radio 1, The Libertines were everywhere. Top 20 hits like 'Time For Heroes' and 'Can't Stand Me Now' were on heavy rotation and they gained a somewhat obsessive fan base. But after just two short 'n' sweet albums (2002's 'Up The Bracket' and 2004's eponymous 'The Libertines', both produced by The Clash's Mick Jones) it was all over. So what became of the likely lads? Personal problems and battling demons saw Peter Doherty and Carl Barat split up and go their seperate ways with various solo projects and forming new bands. But time is a great healer and they patched up their differences to reform in 2010.

More than 10 years after their bitter split, the Pixies reunited in 2004 and have continued to tour and produce new music. They had an enormous influence on alternative rock music, despite their relatively modest commercial success. Their intensely dark sound, often referred to as 'post-punk', pre-dated the huge mainstream success of the grunge scene that they clearly laid the foundations for. It certainly wouldn't be exaggerating the importance of the Pixies' in the late 80s and early 90s to ask whether seminal tracks such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' would ever have seen the light of day without their influence. Founding member Kim Deal left the band in 2013, shortly before the band released their first new music in nearly a decade. Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering continue to tour, with Paz Lenchantin - whose CV includes A Perfect Circle, ZWAN and The Entrance Band - stepping in on bass since 2014 and is now the band’s official bassist.
