In a statement Carter outlined his reasons for the decisions, and his plans for the future.
Tired of conceited bands singing their own praises and telling the world they’re the next big thing? Well, allow us to introduce a band that let their music do the talking. You might not have heard of Filligar but you’ll certainly be familiar with their influences – The Rolling Stones, The Doors and Wilco to name a few.
Filligar might appear to be a bunch of fresh faced American chaps but they’ve actually been churning out albums for nearly ten years, the most recent being ‘The Nerve‘, released in July 2010. During this time they’ve recorded an impressive eight records, bringing a whole new meaning to the word prolific, and demonstrating a work rate that is almost unheard of in the modern world.
US stars the Foo Fighters will headline the final day of this year’s T In The Park festival tonight, following in the footsteps of well-received sets from fellow bill-toppers the Arctic Monkeys and Coldplay.
On Friday night, Arctic Monkeys showcased tracks from recent album ‘Suck It and See‘ alongside well established favourites such as ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor‘ and ‘Mardy Bum‘. The Sheffield band were joined by frontman Alex Turner‘s The Last Shadow Puppets colleague Miles Kane for closer ‘505‘, as a confident performance showed them growing more comfortable with the challenge of headlining major festivals.
Manchester born music fan Jeff Hordley. best known as Emmerdale bad boy Cain Dingle, took some time out lately to chat to Live4ever about which music and bands have inspired him through the years. From checking out his Dad’s record collection as a kid to growing a ‘Mozzer’ haircut, Jeff bore witness to the fledgling careers of future stars such as the Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses, and even turned his hand to DJing around Manchester clubs before his acting career took off.
