1990s mainman John McKeown on music: ““Rock n roll, what is there to say about it? How can you discuss a Jerry Lee Lewis record?"”
Frances McKee on how her son supplied her with album title Sunny Moon: “he didn’t know it was the sun and said it was a sunny moon. I liked it. He will probably sue me for copyright in a few years time.” ‘”
Steve Mason aka King BiscuitTime on music in politics:
I used to see musicians on TV talking about politics and think ‘shut the fuck up and make some good music’. “Personally music is my first and foremost thing… I just want to include a little bit of politics in what I do, for me in this country, things are happening which I can’t just shut up about and can’t be apathetic about – so as long as I’m doing it in a way that’s not ramming it down people’s throats..””
Louise Quinn on their ‘fee’ Kid loco too for producing their album: “That’s all we’ve paid him so far!… I mean, it WAS pretty good weed. The cats got stoned off the passive.”
Amplifico’s Donna Maciocia on her hopes for the rest of the year: “Oh and I’d like to have received a call from KT saying ‘Donna, my label are finally going to let you guys come support me on a 16 date tour! Howsaboutit?’”
Miss The Occupier on, well, themselves:
"Loud songs, twisted vocals, pirates and pink gloves."
Jim Gellatly on The Proclaimers, Arctic Monkeys and Glasevgas: “Sheffield accents can play a part in the success on one of the year’s biggest bands, why not Scottish accents."
150 releases reviewed – singles from FO Machete, Data Panik, Liars, Cinematics… albums by Alex Smoke, Hefner, Electroluvs, Grandaddy, Stereolab… and, Andy Reilly on The Fallen Leaf Pages:”The Radar Brothers’ return is yet another wistful, melodic tour-de-force that will drag you from depression to contentment.”"
a shedload of live reviews including:Gogol Bordello, Calamateur, King Creosote, Bromheads Jacket, Jenny Lewis, DriveBy Argument, Buzzcocks….. and Al Nero saw Darren Hayman perform: “Darren closes the set with a sterling performance of ‘The Sad Witch’, which just helps to remind you how many great songs this man has written and after this performance, how many more he’s capable of.”
