Cool as ice this one chaps! I think it was live exactly 12 years ago this month! #enjoy

And as an extra treat this week there’s a Q&A with the fabulous Rita Ray over in The Spotlight!

Kele (Okereko) is back with his follow up to the folksy ‘Fatherland’ album and this one’s hitting all the buttons. Politics, funk and soul! Chuck in some serious old school Bloc Party where darkness meets disco and boom you’ve hit ‘2042’. It’s grabbed us by the whatnots here at HQ and that’s ‘What The Frequency is Kele’! Link to a full review from the legendary New Musical Express can be found on our news page along with much, much more!
