Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.
Brody Dalle (born Bree Joanna Alice Robinson on Jan. 1st, 1979 in Melbourne, Australia) is former lead vocalist and guitarist of Sourpuss (1993– 1996), defunct punk rock band The Distillers (1998-2006) and Spinnerette (2007 – 2012). When Dalle got married to Tim Armstrong from Rancid, shortly after she had turned eighteen, she moved to Los Angeles, California where she founded The Distillers. In 2003 she and Tim Armstrong divorced and she decided to use Dalle for her surname, since then she was known as Brody Dalle. Read more on Last.fm
