These last couple of weeks have been pretty fantastic for parodies. Here are of seven of the best around.
On Saturday night ‘Bears of Brasov’ played at The Portland Arms on Chesterton Road. The band comprises front-man Jon Smith, who captivates the crowd with his catchy riffs and grungey vocals; drummer Issy Oon, who harmonises while punctuating songs with energetic fills; and James Redburn, the bassist keeping everything water-tight. They joined me afterwards to talk about their music, Cambridge and why they probably should’ve been nominated for the Mercury prize.
That’s not a typo. If you came here expecting songs to remedy you of the Week 5 Blues, then you’ve come to the wrong place. Instead, here you’ll find a showcase of some of the best songs about ‘blue‘ itself. So, sit back, press play, and enjoy seven of the best blue songs around.
