Top 5 “V” Artists
The Vs. The name of Kingston’s Jr. A Hockey team. Also the final letter on the ‘8’ of a telephone keypad.
Most importantly, the starting letter of a surprisingly decent crop of late-alphabet letter artists!
5. Velvet Underground
I still haven’t fully bought into the magic but I’ve come around enough for them to merit a Top 5 spot.
2. Verve, The
Not to be confused with Verve Pipe, The (who had the hit single The Freshman). Part of an absolute Golden Age of music from the UK.
1. Vines, The
Nirvana clone with a Thom Yorke-ish singer? Hardly! Highly Evolved is one of the stronger debuts of the 2000s, one of the ones from the early days of the project that I frequently revisit.
An album that shares its title with a George Orwell novel & at least one other ‘V’ are on deck this week, enjoy!
