SONG FOR TODAY: Six by Seven - Candlelight

An excellent band from the late 90's and early 2000's, I think I first heard Six By Seven on the John Peel show. After finding a copy of their debut album 'Things That We Make', it sounded just as great as it did all those years ago... "Six By Seven were a Nottingham-based indie rock band who consisted of Chris Olley on vocals and guitars, James Flower on keyboards, Sam Hempton on guitar and Christian Davis on drums. Exponents of building, atmospheric drone-rock, influenced heavily by bands such as My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 they found a niche in the industry with a considerable underground following, but despite some attempts to commercialise their sound, this never crossed over into mainstream success."
