You know how every once in a while, a band comes along that gets that "official" stamp of "BIG things are happening!"? The Beatles, the Stones; more recently the Arctic Monkeys? Well, it's happening again.
There's an inordinate amount of hype about a band that not too many have heard of yet. Some of the terms being bandied about include "Saviors of British guitar rock!". I know we've heard it before, but if you'd like to check it out for yourself, we're starting the show with them. The band is called the Vaccines, and we've got their first single - both tracks - to play for you. Listen and judge for yourself, won't you?
Besides that, we've got new music from the Joy Formidable, Take That (yeah, WITH Robbie Williams!), Elton John (with Leon Russell!), and more. We've also got some old tunes, including a psychedelic set featuring the Mooche and the Action, classics from the Faces and Dusty Springfield, and all our special features :
The Fab Four Freakout : Beatles, with another song they gave away.
