I saw both these bands at Palmfest 2013 - another Brighthelmstone Promotions event. Both were wonderful that day, and, if anything, were even better on their return on Saturday 30th November 2013. Perhaps it's because, in the meantime, I've got more familiar with their music.
The Dreaming Spires trade in melodic Big Star-esque guitar pop with a slight country tinge. They've got a bag full of great tunes and in a parallel universe are massive stars.
I seem to remember Danny and the Champions of the World were tipped for great things when they first emerged. …
