THALIA ZEDEK of COME & THALIA ZEDEK BAND – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” with THALIA ZEDEK of COME & THALIA ZEDEK BAND “SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day.

SLEAFORD MODS – ‘KEY MARKETS’ Album Review

SLEAFORD MODS are the antidote to the current state of the music industry, defying everything to break through. They’re not 17 years old, nor did they spout from Simon Cowell’s arsehole and the thought of Radio One play listing them is about as likely as finding an honest politician.
