STA is now Ten Years Old

Public Service Blogcast Episode 45

This episode: unquestionably one of THE bands of 2009, Ritzy, Rhydian and Matt aka The Joy Formidable present tracks from both their record collection and their 'A Balloon Called Moaning' album. If you've failed to catch them live this summer then we ask 'How?' as they've played every festival going with the Festival Republic Stage at Reading/Leeds still to come and in the autumn they support Editors and Passion Pit. Plus they have pioneered use of the innovative Music Glue website as a means to promote their self-released album; if you don't own it here's how you can.
