Peat & Diesel

Crescent, York

Stornoway-based three-piece Peat & Diesel first made a name for themselves posting their tongue-in-cheek folk-punk across social media before the release of their 2019 debut album, Uptown Fank. 

 

Formed by friends Callum "Boydie" MacLeod (vocals/guitar), Innes Scott (accordion), and Uilleam "Uilly" Macleod (drums), the trio started out playing songs to entertain themselves. Their mix of folk, punk, and rock -- with Boydie's tongue-in-cheek lyrics about island life -- soon found an audience when videos of them performing were posted online. After a handful of gigs, and the song and video "Western Isles" going viral, their reach soon spread throughout Scotland. 2019 saw them release their debut album, Uptown Fank and they earned the "Live Act of the Year " award at the Scots Trad Music Awards. They next released "Fairytale of Stornaway," their take on the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl's Christmas standard "Fairytale of New York." Peat & Diesel delivered their sophomore album at the beginning of 2020. Light My Byre entered the U.K. Top 30 upon its release and the trio went on their sold-out "That's the Way We Do It" tour in support of the release.

Lloyd Cole

Palace Theatre, Southend

Through both his lauded work fronting the Commotions and his more eclectic solo efforts, Lloyd Cole established himself as one of the most articulate and acute songwriters of the post-punk era. As a songwriter, Cole's literate and quite British lyrical style is wed to a melodic sensibility that's graceful even when he's at his most physical. Musically, Cole's sound has steadily evolved since he made his debut with his group the Commotions on 1984's Rattlesnakes. From the refined jangle pop of that album, Cole moved into a tougher and more direct approach on his self-titled solo debut in 1990, which he balanced against lushly orchestrated pop on 1991's Don't Get Weird on Me Babe. After trying on a harder, more rock-oriented approach on 1993's Bad Vibes, he settled into a lighter yet more contemplative attack on 1995's Love Story that would dominate most of his work in the 2000s and 2010s. At the same time, Cole began creating a body of instrumental work inspired by electronic music, including the ambient textures of 2001's Plastic Wood and the Krautrock leanings of 2013's Selected Studies, Vol. 1 (a collaboration with Hans-Joachim Roedelius); with 2019's Guesswork, Cole started to fuse his lyrical style with his enthusiasm for electronic sounds.

FRANZ FERDINAND

Albert Hall, Manchester

With their sharply stylish mix of rock and dance music, Franz Ferdinand brought a wry sophistication to indie rock while becoming one of the U.K.'s most popular bands in the early 21st century. The Glasgow-based group arrived in the wake of the early-2000s rock revival, with bands such as the Strokes and the Libertines reminding listeners just how refreshing -- and evergreen -- hook-driven guitar music could be. While Franz Ferdinand had a kinship with those acts, their lineage also included the arch, angular post-punk of bands such as Wire and the witty, funky jangle of fellow Glaswegians Orange Juice. From the beginning, the group had a flair for translating arty and unexpected concepts and references into widely appealing music and visuals, whether it was the Russian Constructivism-inspired artwork that graced their early releases or the Howlin' Wolfhomage in the guitar solos of 2004's smash single "Take Me Out." After laying the groundwork for their sound with that year's Mercury Prize-winning, platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated debut album Franz Ferdinand, the band soon branched out. On 2005's You Could Have It So Much Better, they added more detail and nuance to their style, then expanded on the danceable side of their music on albums ranging from the dub explorations of 2009's Tonight to the sleek disco leanings of 2018's Always Ascending. The group continued to embellish on their signature sound in the 2020s, dabbling in electro pop and vintage glam influences on the new songs included on 2022's best-of Hits to the Head.
