It will stagger you how much of your life you’ve wasted on the motorways. Perhaps the M25 is your Moby Dick. The circular ring road that traps London is a hellish experience full of broken dreams, broken down cars and gleefully swallows up the tattered remains of any evening plans.
Thankfully, we’ve got some sweet relief for you. Our friends Franc Moody have taken the trouble to craft a diverse musical journey around the M25 – no delays. Here’s what the pop group told us about the playlist.
“This is the ultimate compilation for enduring the inevitable M25 gridlock and post-Service Station comedown. A list of tunes custom fitted for a band of 6 wedged into a van with high emissions and low chances of getting moving any time soon. Everyone on this list hails from somewhere near the great M25”
And if you like that Franc Moody’s superb debut album is out now, features a unique blend house, danceable pop and a whole lot of fun.
Franc Moody’s tour dates are below, with tickets available here.
Village Underground, London (Oct 16)
Exchange, Bristol (Oct 18)
