The Who At Glastonbury 2015 Is Going To Be A Triumph - And Here's Why

So now we know. This morning (May 6) it was announced, after months of speculation, that The Who are to headline Sunday evening at Glastonbury 2015, with Paul Weller taking up the slot before them. For joyous fans of the mod legends, the only question now is: "can I fit a tent and 42 cans of cider safely onto the back of a Vespa?"

Radkey In The Studio: The Missouri Trio On Recording Their "Dark, Awesome" Debut Album In South Yorkshire

If you think for even one second that recording in Sheffield means the debut album from American garage rockers Radkey is going to be laced with saucy Jarvis Cocker-style poetry or bleepy Warp Records beats, then think again. “Obviously, there’s Def Leppard,” says bassist Isaiah Radke when asked about the local influences he and his brothers-cum-bandmates Dee (guitar/vocals) and Solomon (drums) have soaked up. “They’re actually awesome,” he adds, suddenly serious.

Soundtrack Of My Life: Ride (And Beady Eye) Legend Andy Bell

Make no mistake: the return of Ride is 2015's most exciting comeback so far. The band, who played their first shows together in 14 years last month, inspired everyone from The Horrors to Deerhunter across their four studio albums the first time around the block, earning them a reputation as highly influential shoegaze pioneers.
