Blossoms were back in Stockport last weekend for another headline gig at Edgeley Park, showering their hometown crowd in the hits which have taken their two studio albums to the top reaches of the UK charts and made gigs such as this possible. With more than able support from the likes of The Blinders, this one might just have been their greatest night so far.
The Blinders were playing one of the highest profile shows so far after the release of debut album Columbia and a visit to South By Southwest in March when they spent some time with Live4ever.
“For those that haven’t had the pleasure of entering their ‘alternate world informed by reality’, it’s a wonderfully immersive place, not only because of the political allegories which are rife throughout but because of the imagery surrounding courtyards, kingdoms and older hierarchical societies managing to find the perfect balance between whimsy and social commentary,” our feature reads. “’That’s exactly what we wanted to put across’, Heywood informs us.”
“’We can’t think of a better way to enjoy our music. We’re not here to say something or change people’s minds on matters.

It’s there if you want to see it but it doesn’t have to be. Just tap your foot if you like.’”
