Blossoms are still on top of the UK albums chart
Last week the Stockport band said they were “made up” over the success of the album. Speaking to The Official Charts Company the band said: “We’re absolutely made up that the album has gone to Number One. From the scaffolding yard to the top of the charts, who’d have thought it? Viva Stockport!”
