Pete O'Hanlon Chats About How Being In The Strypes Taught Him To Take A Different Approach To Music
As part of a 'That Was Then This Is Now' special, Pete O'Hanlon of The Zen Arcade joined Paul on the show to talk about their first single, and the life lessons learned with The Strypes. This time around, the lads in The Zen Arcade are taking a different approach. They had planned to build up a fanbase via live shows but 2020 had other plans, so when that option was removed they started a podcast and released a zine before they even released a debut single. Pete spoke about the pressure that was there in The Strypes because they left school for the band, so they all felt that they really had to make it work. This time is different however, and not having a big label involved brings a sense of freedom to their decisions. The Zen Arcade were recording music when Level 5 kicked in but they hope to have a follow up to 'Don't Say A Word' for us in the next few months.

Josh McClorey On Working With Weller And Life After The Strypes
This Friday, Josh McClorey will release his second solo single 'Crazy', and it's not what you would expect a Josh McClorey track to sound like. Josh caught up with Paul for a chat about creating music in his shed in Cavan, and what he learned from working with Paul Weller. After being based in a band for so long and writing music collectively, the former Strypes guitarist has found that when left to his own devices and being surrounded by computers, his music has taken on a different sound. Josh also told Paul about how singing became a huge thing when writing his new music because for the first time he couldn't hide behind someone else's vocals or blend in. He said it feels more exposed to be the sole vocalist but he has started looking at it as an instrument. Working with Paul Weller on his last three albums have taught Josh a lot too, he spoke about Weller's attitude to work and how when he's in the studio he never takes breaks and is involved in every aspect of the session. You can look forward to two new singles from Josh this year, and he's hoping to have an EP released early next year. You can hear the chat in full by pressing the play button on screen.

Róisín Murphy Chats About Her New Album And What The Future Holds
Fresh from the release of her fifth studio album 'Róisín Machine', Róisín Murphy caught up with Paul to chat all about the sound of the album, and what the future holds. 'Róisín Machine' was ten years in the making and sees Róisín team up with her long-time collaborator Parrot. While she says you can skip through and pick out certain tracks, the album really benefits from being listened to in one uninterrupted sitting. She's spent lockdown working on the next couple of projects, but Róisín is not sure about music after that. She is very interested in pursuing her fascination with faces and venturing into film. One thing Róisín is sure of is that we will find a way to have live music back again in the next 12 months, and once we're back in the room we'll forget all about what's outside the door.

The Divine Comedy | The McLoone Sessions
The Divine Comedy are frankly a sensation. Their new album 'Office Politics' was released in early June and we were delighted to invite the band in for a McLoone Session. It’s the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album ‘Foreverland’. Neil will play four UK and Ireland instores this June as well as 11 dates this October, including a show at Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre on 6th October. Listen to the podcast of the session by just pressing play! The McLoone Sessions every Wednesday 9pm [audio mp3="https://media.radiocms.net/uploads/2019/07/10165412/THE-DIVINE-COMEDY-SESSION.mp3"][/audio] Neil expertly narrates the quirky and alliterative story of ‘Norman and Norma’, a heroically normal couple from Norfolk to a typically sophisticated and emotive 80’s influenced soundscape. “I didn't want my couple to go quietly into that goodnight, and I wanted to have some reason behind why I chose their names.” Neil reflects. “Then it occurred to me that they might find new life and vigour in joining one of those historical re-enactment societies. The idea of Norman and Norma donning helmets and chainmail and hurling themselves into bloodthirsty medieval combat brought a smile to my face.” Office Politics is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. “It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But Office Politics central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages. “I do try to make normal records,” Neil says with a smile. ”But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.” And for that we should be thankful. Neil Hannon and co also recorded a special version of 'Becoming More Like Alfie' from 1996 'Casanova'. The Divine Comedy will play the following UK and Ireland headline tour dates. Ticket links can be found at www.thedivinecomedy.com October 2019 Sun 6th - Dublin, Bord Gais Energy Theatre Mon 7th - Belfast, Ulster Hall Tue 8th - Cork, Opera House Thu 10th - Glasgow, Old Fruitmarket Fri 11th - Birmingham, O2 Institute Sat 12th - Oxford, O2 Academy 1 Mon 14th - Bristol, O2 Academy Tue 15th - Leeds, Metropolitan University (Leeds Beckett University) Wed 16th - Brighton, Dome Thu 17th - London, Eventim Apollo Fri 18th - Manchester, Albert Hall
