Florence And The Machine's Florence Welch performs live at London Airwaves, Friday September 19. The vocalist recently posted a blog on the band's MySpace denying charges that live favourite 'Kiss With A Fist' glamourises domestic violence: "It is about two people pushing each other to psychological extremes because they love each other. The song is not about one person being attacked, or any actual physical violence." Photo: Tim Cochrane
