Inner City Live with Doves + Johnny Marr + The Coral + The Twang

Doves

Half way through Doves’ set at Inner City Live, Jimi Goodwin surveyed the soggy crowd in front of him and praised the stiff upper lip of the British festival-goer. So he should; and for two reasons: Firstly, the people in attendance had turned up in spite of the weather, when a duvet day was the […]
