Was watching some obscure music programme last night, on BBC4, about bands signed to the Rough Trade label. There were same great bands – The Smiths, Libertines, The Strokes, Pulp – among others.
This came on at the end and I’d not heard of them before (which makes me feel like I’ve been living under a rock since they’ve been formed for quite a long time). Antony & The Johnsons. They won the Mercury Music Prize in 2005. More about Antony.
Really haunting quite amazing voice and music. More on the band’s website.
