Ramblin' Man Countdown - The Pineapple Thief 21 July 2015
No surprises we guess as we continue our pick of the bands over the three Ramblin' Man stages this Sunday. Yes we gave a massive hint yesterday that we would be heading towards the Prog Stage to hopefully catch the end of Knifeworld's set - so the next band on our list has to be WRC favourites The Pineapple Thief (our Vid Of The Day) who are on stage at 3.35pm. The WRC actually saw TPT's very first gig at The Whitchurch Festival twelve years ago but they were actually formed in 1999 by founder and chief songwriter Bruce Soord as an experimental bedroom project! TPT have pursued a distinctive and idiosyncratic path over the years; always evolving, always progressing, but never forgetting that the most potent weapon in any artist’s arsenal is the lovingly crafted song itself. Widely hailed as one of the most powerful and invigorating live rock bands the UK has produced in a long time, TPT have refined and redefined their sound over and over again since those tentative early days. Recent albums like Someone Here Is Missing (2010) All The Wars (2012) and their latest Magnolia (2014) have contributed hugely to their reputation and renown, garnering frothing plaudits from the rock media and drawing in fans from across today’s vast alternative music spectrum.
