We delved into a matter of rock royalty for the themed playlist and pulled on our plaid shirts and suitably grunge tees to celebrate what would’ve been Nirvana front man and 90's icon, Kurt Cobain’s 46th birthday. Nods to Sonic Youth and the Meat Puppets were no surprise but we paid homage to his first full length in form of London based [and Lauren Laverne’s new favourite band, no less] Bleech…and what more of an excuse do we need to welcome Kathleen Hanna back on the airwaves as the original muse for Smells Like Teen Spirit having scrawled something similar on his bedroom wall.
Putting a much needed spring in our step with her hand claps and joviality, Laura Mvula releases her summery single ‘Green Garden’ just on Monday which almost certainly necessitates a play out. This week also saw the return of Vuvuvultures ironically entitled ‘Stay Still’; a definite one for the dance floor.
