Ted and I were absolutely over the moon to be invited onto Kev ‘Legs’ Walker’s radio show this week to talk about and play some of our favourite tunes from the 1990s.
I was sent by Grrrls with Guitars to interview Hands Off Gretel. I’ve been listening to them for a few months, a kind of hats off to my early love of Babes in Toyland and L7.
Together with Sarah Jay Hawley, who you might remember from that wonderful track, ‘Dissolved’ on Massive Attack’s ‘Mezzanine’ Album, they have created a mellow tune and the location fits well with the sundrenched feeling in the song.
They like to mix things up, with the light and shade of the grunge bands, strong melodies with dirty distortion. Beauty and the Beast.
I am sat outside ‘avin a fag, listening to my band storm through a blistering version of Mountain Song at the soundcheck. I am freaking out with anticipation for tonight’s show.
Jon the Postman was born in Manchester in 1959, making him the perfect age to enjoy the punk scene when it broke in the late 70s…
Daniel is a perfect frontman, not afraid to leave the stage area and plant his mic stand in amongst the crowd. Each song bringing the audience closer and closer.
