The 2018 Indietracks compilation contains 40 songs, with, as far as I can tell, just two of the acts having previously featured on TVV – Life Model, and The Smittens.

Again, this is one I’ll likely return to for future postings.  It’s maybe worth pointing out that, as time went on, the compilation CD was giving space to lesser-known acts, and the festival ‘headliners’ for 2018 – The Lovely Eggs on Friday, British Sea Power on Saturday and Honeyblood on Sunday – were not included.

Today’s offering comes from Worst Place, the opening act on the main stage on the Friday evening, and who, by all accounts, went down a storm, leading to a fair bit of on-line coverage over the following weeks and months.

The four-piece band formed in London in 2016, but judging from what’s on this SoundCloud page, have just six original songs to their name, which is backed up by not too much product being available on the bandcamp page.

There’s also been nothing since early 2019, which makes me think the band is no more, which is a real pity as I quite liked what they were doing. I also came across a video for another single:-

It really does feel as if a lot of young bands, the world over, lost all their momentum when COVID took its toll.
