"Punishing is good"
Elton John

Elton John is seemingly a big Factory Floor, saying that "punishing is good".

Elton John is full of surprises. The legendary songwriter breezed into the Isle of Wight last weekend, performing a showstopping set at Bestival. Rolling back the years, the piano player unfurled hit after hit.

Yet seemingly, Elton John listens to rather more current fare in his leisure time. Speaking to The Guardian, the singer stated that he was a big fan of These New Puritans' new album 'Field Of Reeds'.

In addition to this, Elton John has been listening to Factory Floor - revelling in their often quite difficult fusion of post-punk, industry textures and techno driven beats.

Musing on this, Elton John told The Guardian that sometimes "punishing is good".

Right on, Elton.. right on. Find the Clash review of Factory Floor's debut album HERE.
