And the centre of the world is …



where Arcade Fire – a regular fixture on the Furillen playlist – will play a gig on 7 June.


I love this band, and I love that they did this … although I have no idea why.

It’s difficult to explain just how dull Scunthorpe is. It’s absolutely nowhere. When I googled ‘quotes about Scunthorpe’, the first relevant hit was a page about garden fencing.

No band ever plays there – except for The Pogues, in 1988.

Nobody visits this town. Ever …

What a brilliant, quirky, insane – unpredictable – band …
