In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

Band of Skulls‘ arresting debut, recorded at Radiohead’s Courtyard Studios, opens with great big dumb riffs then reveals playful wit and restrained soul as it develops.

“Death By Diamonds And Pearls” and “Patterns” are as choppily irresistible as prime Pixies with a dash of T.Rex.

As the trio’s guitarist Russell Marsden steps aside to let bassist Emma Richardson sing, it’s less White Stripes, more Brody Dalle, but momentum is maintained.

“Fires” will scorch anyone whose favourite Radiohead album is The Bends.
