A dash of country, a whole heap of psychedelia - the Coral's set in the Word Arena on Sunday evening was a reminder of what great songwriters they are.

Upholding Liverpool's musical reputation, they formed in 1996, and their debut self-titled album was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2002.

Other career highlights include touring with Arctic Monkeys and opening the BBC Electric Proms in 2007 with a certain Noel Gallagher joining them on guitar.

Nothing if prolific, they've released five studio albums.

Fronted by James Skelly, they've had hit after hit - including Dreaming of You and In the Morning - which are still as crowd-pleasing as ever.

Showcasing material from their new album, Butterfly House, there's a real Byrds-y influence going on - especially on latest single 1,000 years.
