BOOOOOOOM!!! What a tune to open up this show. Enter Shikari‘s stunning rendition of the Game of Thrones theme tune from a BBC Session they did. I cannot take this off repeat when I start listening to it. Indeed, I am a complete and utter geek but I do not care. Loads of awesome music as always so if you haven’t heard this show yet, hit play and do let me know what you think about the tunes.
Maximising my geekness I opted for Nightfall by Blind Guardian to follow Enter Shikari. Local time then with the debut single from Northampton’s Fox Chapel leading into a cracking tune from the debut album by Governor’s Luck (go buy it NOW please and you can also get the t-shirt while you’re at it: http://governorsluck.co.uk/). Swedish sensations Stranded Mermaid stun us with No Bloodshed Allowed before we get a bit dancey courtesy of Apollo Junction. More stunning sounds from Wild Beasts & a new side project for Dry The River‘s Matthew Taylor aka Waylor.
Chris Weston then kicks off the acoustic finery followed by Richie Ros, a fantastic tune from the new Luke Jackson trio EP & a banjo-led beauty from the Sam Kelly trio. To close proceedings something remarkably outstanding from David Welfare.
