Playlist: Stornoway


Stornoway are bloody good, aren’t they…
And we bet they could put together a damn fine playlist if they wanted to…

 But oh my! Would you Adam and Eve it!
They’ve only gone and done just that!

Yes, Stornoway’s Jon Ouin has been working away,
putting all his sweat and blood into this mighty fine mixtape, for your listening pleasure

Grab a brew and wrap your ears around this…
