Keele lecturer's debut named one of the Greatest Albums You've Never Heard
The debut album by lecturer Joe Stretch’s band Performance has been named number 2 in the NME’s 100 Greatest Albums You’ve Never Heard.
Released in 2007, (We Are) Performance is described in the magazine by Hurts’ Adam Anderson as “a brilliant album” which has “that inescapable feeling of youth, of unbounded excitement, of danger, and, of course, heartbreak”.
Joe, who teaches song-writing at Keele, has recently released his second album with Performance, Red Brick Heart.
