Stage 2: SUNDAY 11
Pop begins here.
It’s hard to recall a time before we knew Nothing Can Stop Us or Only Love Can Break Your Heart, or Avenue, or He’s On The Phone, or Sarah Cracknell’s smile. Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs and Sarah Cracknell have been described as “London’s musical laureates” and “perhaps the only band to capture the teeming variety of the capital.”
Pitchfork described the sound of 1991 debut Foxbase Alpha as “an imaginary year-round summer.” The Guardian brought up their “consistently wonderful songwriting.” and declared the band a “national treasure”. Nine albums, sixteen Top 40 hits, almost as many Top Of The Pops appearances.
