Stereophonics - Chaos From The Top Down

Stereophonics release new single and video for Chaos From The Top Down

Britpop icons Stereophonics have release a new single to hold us over until they finish recording their new album. The track Chaos From The Top Down tells a story from a perspective of a 15 year old boy who has been shot, and is left laying in the road to reflect on his life as he is dying. The lyrics are based on a true story that happened outside of the home of lead singer, Kelly Jones. The song forces us to see troubled youth as more than just a victim. But  rather, children who had ambition, hopes and dreams…just like everyone else.

Best Of Peter Murphy Playlist - Don't Go Away Heartbroken

Spotify Playlist: Best Of Peter Murphy – Sad Eyed Pearl

This weeks playlist celebrates the catalog of the legendary Peter Murphy. This features selections from all of his solo albums plus a few choice Bauhaus tracks. When making the playlist, I fully expected to have quite a few selections from Deep and Cascade. But, I was a bit surprised at how many songs from Unshattered would end of making it. This just proves that it’s good to go back and examine an artists entire catalog.
