Adele‘s big-selling album ‘21‘ is back on top of the UK Album chart, replacing last week’s no.1 ‘4‘ which drops one place. The Horrors‘ new record ‘Skying‘ scores a more than respectable debut at #5, while Foo Fighters‘ ‘Wasting Light‘ stays in the top ten (#8). Elsewhere, Arctic Monkeys‘ ‘Suck It and See‘ drops to #15 and Bon Iver‘s self-titled second album is at no.33.
‘All thing’s must pass’, a Beatle once sang. A harsh reality it may be, but occasionally there is some good that comes from the demise of something special. In this case it is the end of Far From the Dance and the birth of Sons Of Mischief.
The band from Huddersfield, England, comprises three of the former members of the now-defunct Far From The Dance; lead vocalist and guitarist Alec Townsend, bassist Jake Miller and drummer ‘Rocker‘ Thom are not giving up the gun just yet, moving forward under their new guise with ambitious intent. They’ve distanced themselves from the prog rock influenced sound of their former band and taken on a new direction that draws its inspiration from Britpop bands of the nineties.
The trio are now gearing up for the release of their debut EP this autumn and will be touring extensively and no doubt getting up to a bit mischief to spread the word.
Suede frontman Brett Anderson has confirmed the band’s plans to record an album following their recent reunion, but has insisted any new material will only see the light of day if they have full faith in its quality.
