PPY head honcho Joe Coates tells us, “I’m super chuffed to have some real legends and magical musicians visiting, mostly for the first time, and finishing the year as we started it. Great acts, the right (ish, mostly!) venues and a genuine opportunity to see people whom might never have visited our fair city otherwise. There are two Leeds shows here too, Superchunk we’ve been working on three and a half years (I kid you not), it’s their first show in the UK outside London for nearly fifteen years, and John Smith hasn’t played there solo before. So pleased, yes.”
