The Horrors are a band who wear their influences as proudly as John Rambo wore his blood-spattered bandana, and third record ‘Skying‘ is no exception – though this time the influences are far less obvious.
Coming snarling out of, erm, Southend in 2007, The Horrors initially fused a conceptual sound that was unequal parts The Fuzztones, Sonics, Joe Meek and Screaming Lord Sutch, and while their outré garage rock was enough to put off many an NME reader (the band having been pushed fairly relentlessly by the publication in that inception year), they have subsequently expanded their record collections and scope, as evidenced on euphoric sophomore effort ‘Primary Colours’, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2009.

Foo Fighters brought this year’s T In The Park festival to an epic conclusion last night, playing a set of over 20 songs packed full of their biggest hits to a massive crowd on the Main Stage.
With frontman Dave Grohl declaring his intention to play for as long as possible right from the start, the band didn’t disappoint as seminal rock anthems such as ‘Learn To Fly‘, ‘All My Life‘ and ‘Everlong‘ were all trotted out for a typically bombastic end to the annual event.
