Chad Valley and Pet Moon musicians explain Blessing Force

Help

Blessing Force has made an indelible impact on the Oxford music scene since its beginnings in late 2010.

Under the stewardship of Yannis Philippakis of Mercury Prize-nominees Foals, several new bands appeared to spring up in the city overnight.

The ethos behind the collective was explained by Andrew Mears from Pet Moon, and Hugo Manuel from Jonquil and Chad Valley, ahead of their BBC Introducing gig in December 2011.
