Starsailor celebrate greatest hits


Indie stalwarts Starsailor return to the Roadmender next week, touring in support of a greatest hits compilation which was released last month.

Good Souls: The Greatest Hits includes tracks from across the band’s four studio albums.

The record kicks off with their three biggest hits Good Souls, Silence Is Easy and Alcoholic.

It also includes two new tracks Give Up The Ghost and Hold On.

Starsailor burst onto the scene in 2001 when their single Fever earned them the title of “Britain’s best new band”.

They were formed at Wigan and Leigh Music College by music students James Walsh, James Stelfox and Ben Byrne.

Later saw the arrival of keyboardist Barry Westhead, who cemented their sound.

Their latest album, All The Plans was released in 2009.

Starsailor play the Northampton venue on Friday, October 9. Doors open at 7pm, tickets cost £19.50 in advance before fees via SOtickets or by calling 0845 4744718
