Standon Calling's tenth anniversary celebrated with a stellar line-up.
Hertfordshire's most eventful music festival Standon Calling is set to return for its 10th anniversary, and a host of new line-up additions are announced as the event draws nearer; including UK festival favourites The Horrors. Though that's not all you can look forward to.
Joining the likes of already announced headliners Little Dragon, The Dandy Warhols and Basement Jaxx are indie five-piece The Horrors, whose last album 'Luminous' (released in 2014) reached number 6 in the UK albums chart, as well as Dingwalls DJs Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge, electro duo Bondax and Scottish synthpop trio Prides.
The singer is joined by Ben Howard and George Clinton on the line-up.
Bjork has become the latest headline announcement for Wilderness Festival 2015, set to hit Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire, UK from August 6th to 9th following the release of her acclaimed ninth album 'Vulnicura' early this year. She'll appear as the main act on the Friday.
Bjork to headline Wilderness 2015
Having released the follow-up to her 2011 record 'Biophilia' in January, the popular avant-garde Icelandic singer is taking to the road in support of it in the coming months. Among the handful of dates so far announced this year, she'll be topping Friday's bill at Wilderness in the Summer, alongside previously announced headliners for Saturday and Sunday, Ben Howard and George Clinton, the latter of whom will be rocking both his bands Parliament and Funkadelic.
A few years ago, whilst working in an especially depressing call centre, I was subjected to a staff training day. Amidst the myriad absurdities, in amongst the management-speak and exercises in which my colleagues and I shouted company policies at each other for no discernible reason, one speech was given which contained an element of truth. It concerned the elusive 'x-factor', that special quality which would elevate us above our fellows and transform us into smooth-talking model employees. A nonsensical term to use in the context of that workplace - any failure to sparkle on the part of me and my colleagues had more to do with being forced to continually justify indefensible company policies to rightly aggrieved customers - but wholly applicable to pop music, as the rise of the ubiquitous talent show of the same name has demonstrated. The lack of an x-factor is what lets down disco-house act Hercules and Love Affair's Blue Songs. It's a solid album, a 'B'-grade album, but no more; it lacks that special something which would transform it from the equivalent of a mid-table Championship team into a side pushing for Premier League honours.
