Faerground Attraction

From: Sheffield, England

Faerground Accidents

Today we take a brief break from the glut of Christmas related songs on the blog (don't worry there are still more on their way) for a late entry to the candidates for the Devil's top 14 for 2014. We Hate Same Things the debut from Sheffield "psychotic pop" group Faerground Accidents sounds like late 60s Bowie fronting the Smiths taking it mighty close to the top of my list of most wonderful things in the universe.

If the recent BBC Music Awards made you worried about the state of the UK music scene then fear not here is one reason to be hopeful and optimistic about 2015.
