‘An intimate, socially-distanced seated show with level access’, according to Mystery Jets on social media.

Finding the positives from a year such as this one isn’t easy, but Mystery Jets can look back on 2020 as the year when their sixth studio album A Billion Heartbeats finally got its release.

And they’ll end it with a gig very much in a 2020 setting on December 19th at the Clapham Grand in London.

Album Review: Various Artists – Brits & Pieces

Posted on 30 Nov 2020 at 8:41am

Brits & Pieces is a new collection born of social media.

Here is an album which proves that anything is possible with passion, enthusiasm and hard work.

Nearly two years ago, a 90s indie fan set up a Twitter account with a view to sharing memories, merchandise and anything else from the decade.

Primarily centred (but not exclusively) around Britpop, Marc Rossiter’s feed quickly became a treasure trove for fans of the era, especially through his wealth of personal photographs of luminaries from the era.

As the account gained more and more followers, new bands were recommended to Rossiter and, inspired by the Shine series, he took it upon himself to release a compilation album of independent British artists.

Now, with the tracks having been mastered by Nick Brine (engineer of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and The Stone Roses’ Second Coming), the CD is available to purchase from Rough Trade, with all profits being distributed to the bands equally.
