My TEMPLES FESTIVAL 2014 Experience

This is the second (and final) attempt at reviewing the weekend because the original draft reached 1,250 words by the time I covered Electric Wizard – the headliner of the first night – and I know no-one loves music enough to read an essay.

Top 10… Anticipated Songs To Hear On the Melvins ‘Endless Residency’ Dates.
