Snow Patrol

Wake up, wake up”, Gary Lightbody begs on new track ‘Lifeboats’. We can’t help but reiterate the same plea (only with more fervour). It’s 14 years since Snow Patrol banded together, two years since their last album, and now they’re...

Snow Patrol : One Night Is Not Enough

"Receiving strong support from the Evening Session ", it says here, and if that doesn't put you off, nothing will (haw haw). Sure enough, 'One Night Is Not Enough' hits you like a shot of pure camphor (which you get in mothballs - Laundry Ed) ,...
