Music snippets – Westival, Creep and Leapy Lee!

Two musical snippets today.

Firstly, I‘ve only just discovered that Nadine Shah, featured on Friday in our Procurement Pub round-up, is playing at my local venue in Aldershot (North Hampshire, England) next Friday as part of the brilliant Westival Festival. This is a two day indoor festival with real grass inside the venue!

We Are The Ocean headline on Saturday, with other really good bands such as Flight Brigade also starring. If you’re anywhere in the region, come along and support a great local venue and see some top up and coming artists.

Secondly, here’ s an interesting musical fact that I have just learnt. Did you know that “Creep” by Radiohead – one of my all time favourite songs – is so similar to “The Air that I Breathe” by the Hollies that the band were successfully sued by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood*, writers of that song.

Sounds incredible at first but if you find that hard to believe, have a listen to this neat version by a band from Bristol, The Moon Loungers. They appear to be a covers / wedding type band, but sound superb on this.

* (More trivia - they were also the writers of “Little Arrows” by Leapy Lee. And we lived in Leapy’s old house near Ascot for many years...)
