Transcript

Wayne:

This is a mid life less ordinary. And this is season two, episode one. And this is the hazy James.

Unknown:

Johnny was looking a Cessna one on the face.

Trev:

Right. Did you law Were you here? Because why don't I did. We were lucky enough to snag an interview with these guys. They're a new heavy bass blues rock band from Halifax and that was the Yellow Belly blues from the hazy giants.

Wayne:

I think that track is a real ear worm. I listened to this every night after we were having dinner. And the boy just can't stop singing. It's a real way when what I would say is go to Spotify and download the track hazy James Yellow Belly blues from there. So you can give it the full hi fi treatment because podcasts do unfortunately come out in mono. But I still think it sounds cool on Nitro if you

Trev:

does, it needs to be played loud as well. Yeah, definitely rephrase that riff is a killer. He really is. That's the first thing when I heard about Hurley on Planet Rock. I was like that riff is just great. Yeah, and consider the two of them as a big noise for two pieces. There's

Wayne:

a very big noise. It's a very big noise. And now they can say they've opened a show.

Unknown:

Yes, right. Yeah.

Wayne:

Welcome to season two everyone. Yeah, a bit different. Much of the show is the same as always, but you know, just a bit different to kick it off. Yeah, we've got we've got the hazy joins. We've got Alice from the hazy joins, we'll go straight to the interview. So we have Alice with us today from the hazy Jane's the hazy Jane's are a blues rock duo from Halifax. The other one wine very heavy. Yeah. I couldn't believe actually when you when you say to me, but they're a duo. And believe me from the sound. As you've heard they sound more than two people in the band to be fair, don't they?

Unknown:

And that's one of the first things that struck me to be honest.

Wayne:

Yeah, your default is a stage. The other member of the band is Braun. In he's the drummer and you are the vocalist and guitarist Ellis.

Ellis:

Yeah, that's right. Yeah, we're a two piece rock outfit, as I like to describe it, I suppose. From the the beautiful Gulf country of Halifax

Wayne:

named Alice hazy Jane's. I did a Google of it, because I want you to be out with it and everything and No. And I was a bit shocked with what I found. Because I think I could be arrested with some of the stuff that come up on Google when I typed in hazy Jas. I know one of them was it basically, as an IPA brew dog drink. The other one was something a salubrious kind of substance. And the other one I can't even mention I don't think you can I can I ask where the name comes from and why you chose it. You

Ellis:

Yeah, yeah, so basically, me and me and Brahm, very big craft beer, some, and we do tend to have the odd brew dog. So I don't know if we're gonna get sued in the future

Unknown:

sponsorship deal.

Ellis:

We did, we did sort of, I think it was, it was me Actually, I was just down in my face count of charity Jed from brewdog. And, and I thought, Man, this is a really good idea. Why don't we just call us over hazy, James? It's my favorite beer.

Wayne:

Thanks. I'm glad you cleared out but I'm glad it was the most mellow answer out the free

Trev:

to be I was quite hoping he would be like, some guy you POM thing it was

Wayne:

one of them was a bit like that.

Unknown:

Yeah. Really? Yeah.

Wayne:

I don't know how we would have answered that. But yeah, maybe

Ellis:

I maybe should have googled it before I

Trev:

get it out. You don't have to worry about googling things by yourself and Brian cavum. Halifax. Yeah.

Ellis:

No, Brian is from Well, he's actually from his online picker in the area. So North York. But his family runs back all the way to like our they were talking about some of this is completely going off topic now. But yeah, his family goes back to like Richard the third and all the way back to like 156 or something. If you're like a really, really big family line. So I think he'd like part part Norwegian, or,

Unknown:

oh, gosh, I had to beat then.

Ellis:

Oh, we've been asked started playing the guitar in when I was 16. And then by the time I was probably like, 17, I was playing in my first band and stuff like that. And then I eventually went to music college, did a few gigs with another band. And we played a gig in home, a place called O'Reilly's, which is a venue just outside the hole. He was playing in a band called Bigfoot. And I met him there. And they were like, blues, blues rock band, with bronze dad, as the drummer brothers playing the guitar. In fact, in this band, brothers, Daddy's like, is a bit of a genius. Sort of like a bit of a manager for us as well tells us we don't share or not. Everyone needs one of those. And yeah,

Trev:

to be honest, at least that's the good thing because you can be honest with you. Manager that's kind of bats around a BS. Oh, yeah. That's all right. That's right. You know, he's going to be honest with you. He's going to be to be it reminds me of laws doing state where they do have you ever seen that? What you said about what is the Black Album sale? And he's old man was like, sounds like shit. Was it black? Or the air marked up? Wherever one it was? He absolutely kinda laws are extended. And this is what I mean. He can be honest. Yeah, he did. Yeah. Yeah, he did. He might even be loaded, I think which probably deserves it, to be honest.

Ellis:

That's all right. But yeah, Brahms does it have a guru is a big Led Zeppelin father, these, his is definitely helped us come up with some ideas and stuff. And he's been really positive about the whole thing as well. I think it's his sort of music as well. So it does help to have somebody that is honest, balsa are supportive at the same time.

Unknown:

Definitely.

Ellis:

So yes, that's probably a brand new gig. And we've been well, I think it's long overdue. beardbrand playing in the same band together. Because we've always,

Trev:

things are just meant to happen, aren't they? If that makes sense. You know, it just yeah.

Ellis:

We've we've always questioned each other, like, why have we never started doing something together before? We're always questioning each other on it, and it's as far as we can get hung up on it to which we're doing now. It's good. It sounds good. I'm

Trev:

really happy with how it's going. Ellie Mae does sound great. does sound really good?

Wayne:

Yeah, saying that heavy blues rock sound Trevor and IDQ so much. You must have some great influences Ellis

Ellis:

Yeah, I've got I've got quite a few to be fair and bronze similar. So like, I think for me personally, jack White is a massive influence on me. I remember seeing him at Brinks bar of all places. When he first released his first solo record and he was he just blew me away. It's just he's a fantastic artist are these. These uh, it just changes his sound, every single in every single song as opposed to different albums. sighs he's just he's a massive influence on me. And especially mixing with that blues size thing where it sounds, you know, it sounds like he's recorded it off a potato. And he's just like, it just makes it sound great. And I don't know how like today against the system, the

Trev:

icon thing with guitars like that, that is that they kind of a what I love about some, most guitarists that I admire is, you know, insulates them from their tone. Yeah, but they can still sort of change and go with different things and you still notice them. You know, that kind of signature sound, you know, I think, has really got that kind of, and I think, debaters when they first come out The White Stripes. There wasn't a lot of bands would be doing that kind of modern sort of scotch bows. I'd call it a bit Delta Blues style. Really, no one was doing it. Well, they Yeah, no,

Ellis:

no, that's right. That they were they were sort of the first ones especially to make it sort of mainstream as well. So that sort of music. I mean, that really just added something different. And I think that there was not really many two pieces around. Definitely not that I can think of where they've still had that sort of Wall of Sound sound like an army. It was as if a full band is playing. And there were just so many so many catchy lyrics. That was it was still heavy music as well. I think I think he said he just wanted it to sound as if it was live every single time and he only recorded on a like an eight track recorder. You know, I just either he goes a bit daft with the elderly, but the really clever guy. Clever. Yeah. Yeah, yeah.

Trev:

It's funny because that kind of heavy blues rock is it the band I like, died, I listen to quite a bit. I haven't heard that they're still together, a band called Nothing is left Left hand cruiser. And they were to police. And they were very kind of heavy American guys. But it is amazing with that sort of blues rock sound that especially the heavier blues rock, like yourself and left lane crews that they can they can only be two of them. Like they create such a sort of Sonic Boom, if that makes sense. Yeah. I think that there really is.

Ellis:

Yeah, I agree. I mean, before the his agenda was in a, I was in another two piece called, called freak. And that was a lot heavier. And so basically, what I found was with two pieces, not that I know everything about music and two pieces and all that because I'm really I really don't.

Trev:

I do I do. And so you can just talk to me. I know.

Wayne:

He's joking, but unfortunately, I can't on this topic.

Ellis:

And it's just that, I think when it comes to up people can you know, the see the, the music solves their problem. So they can hear the guitar and you can see the guitar, they can see the vocals, they can hear the vocals and exceed the drums. You know, I mean, whereas sometimes if you've got five guitars and two bears, two drums, like just too much sound and carry them back out every single instrument I think that people are, you know, the people that just like to listen to music as opposed to create music and do all that and just want to watch it. That's quite interesting to people like that.

Trev:

But I think that it doesn't know each day. I think what you're saying is well, he's like it's pure, isn't it? Yeah. Yeah, you can you can as you say you can hear where it's coming from. You know, it's not like a kind of mishmash and like to be listened to quite a bit of old prog rock and stuff. As much as I love it. Sometimes you can just sound so eccentric and or they're just they're just their own RC sometimes you think he's groovy and stuff but really, like, just that's I think that's the reason AC DC I like some most people's favorite rock band because it is just that riff isn't it?

Ellis:

Oh, yeah.

Trev:

Oh, I mean, the riff is the key you know? Yeah, I

Ellis:

think me and my mom, work partner boss I don't I leave on the best net. But we were we was in the valley with lucid in AC DC and, and I've never really full on delved into the ACDC thing and listened to all the album's all the way through it's always just been the hit. So you know I'm back in right now that's our thing. But sometimes the the the best songs are like the sixth or seventh or eighth track on the album and the ones that have like the really catchy rest and just that really simple drumbeat. It's just they're the best songs for me. I think that yeah, that I really I agree when you say that about everything they like they're really quite simplistic but they're really really, really really good and most proud of their people seven The

Trev:

last thing I'll say about AC DC to me, because I I'm a massive fan of the built in Scott era, the earliest stuff rather than then I did I dang it. brackin Black is just like a milestone in rock music, isn't it? But yeah, Bond Scott stuff. He had that kind of dirty kind of greasy and coolness about it. I think that dirtiness of it say days he didn't he had that kind of rotted out, sort of uncle, he wouldn't leave your teenage niece with it. But looking at what he did, he had that kind of, and I think a lot of bands that took on that mentor have the ACDC riff of the coal circles of power and that they all have that kind of Grecia that's quite become a bit biker rock, I think. But with your athletes, it's a lot more kind of seven is sort of influenced rather than that kind of greasy. You know, which I think's refreshing, if that makes sense. It really does you know,

Wayne:

and took talking of that as well. I mean, the pressures of actually having to work together during lockdown what how did you embrun practice Ellis.

Ellis:

So Well, like I mentioned I've mentioned before about two days before that's over locked down that sort of like broke away and we started just with on different paths in our lives and all that sort of thing and I was a bit of a I really wanted to carry on doing music and you know, as well I've always wanted to do and all that sort of thing. But I didn't really know what else to do because and I really want to do my own thing and do solo stuff because I'd rather just rock out on stage with an electric guitar and Boston acoustic he was saying

Trev:

you chose the right path there my you really

Ellis:

I don't know if I can do the lobby dad voice if you don't I mean that sounds like I'm taking the pace but

Trev:

I don't think a lot of Ed Sheeran fans listen to his podcast so you can

Wayne:

definitely want to have any Now I know that

Ellis:

I am a ginger mom that well

Wayne:

we got nothing against them nothing again. But But yeah, it must have been challenging LSD is just too short obviously to put something together like yellowbelly blues in the during the lockdown Did you sorry is it recorded in a studio? Did you guys lay down separate tracks or an edited together? How was it done?

Ellis:

So I thought of like wrote the riff and did all this sort of thing where before I met Brian. And I really liked it and the lyrics were there and everything. And then I messaged Brian and said do you want to do fancy doing something and you can even just, you know dip in on a track for me or something like that. He was like now I've actually just about the time will ask you if he wants to do something with me. So I was like Yeah, let's do it. So we basically just spent a month or two sending voice recordings to each other over Facebook Messenger and getting excited about different ideas and I showed him Yellow Belly blues and he was like oh man this is this is really cool really like it really liked the sound. And he sent me like a German tracker and stuff and then we said Should we get like a professional recording and we'd like to do it so there's a studio in York that we we went to we we made sure we was doing all the government guidelines and stuff and there turns out that you know if you're in a professional band and you do earn money in somewhere that you can go and record albeit socially distance regard as a two piece beta two pieces a lot easier to be socially distance and all that I think so. And so it was it was a little bit different than the usual way of recording but we got there at the end and yeah,

Wayne:

music first setlist as opposed to like music before lyrics, obviously.

Ellis:

Yeah, for me personally. Yeah, I mean, every now and again, I'll come with like, a hotline or something like that when I'm out and about but it's usually the music comes first and then the lyrics come afterwards. To me personally, yeah,

Wayne:

yeah. Yeah, sounds

Trev:

cool. Yeah, that is talking about the way you've recorded the track is such a shine because playing live is obviously the biggest thing and like, I can just, you know, I'm really looking forward to seeing you play live. Hopefully you get to London at some point. And we can come up and meet you guys like there and see you play but you know, That's the whole lifeblood of of start in band II. You need that that snatched away from you really, haven't you? So? I bet you're itching to just like because you'd sound great in a nice will. vibrant, sweaty kind of rock club blob banging it out. Right. Exactly. That's, you know, I bet you're really jumping at the bit to get out and do it. You might.

Ellis:

Absolutely Yeah, we've been. We're so desperate to, to get out and do a gig. We've got. We've actually finally got a couple of days booked in. in Sheffield, that the the I forgot the name of it. The links? Yeah, we'll

Wayne:

put the links to that. Yeah.

Ellis:

Cool. Yeah, thank you. We will play there. We just can't wait. We're hopefully gonna do like, we've got like a new thing or retarded that we might, we don't know when to drop it. We're not, we're just going to try and ride on the yellowbelly blues thing as long as possible at the minute and then hopefully, we'll get around to releasing another single and potentially doing some live streams in a venue in yarks. To be honest, doing just doing anything that's partially live will be absolutely fantastic. And we can't wait to just share what we've got. We've got so much more than just yellowbelly loose to share.

Wayne:

It's gonna sit down it's gonna be one of our questions, at least it was like well, if you got waiting, if you've got an album like ready to go near enough, you know, once you get yellowbelly blues right out there.

Ellis:

On the sorry, the the list of ideas and songs that we've got is really quite extensive. We've got quite a lot in there and it's all quite different. It's not all it doesn't all sound like yellow bellied blues it some of it sounds a little bit different than sort of it's a bit more physically so limits a bit more, you know, sort of like even Arctic Monkeys warehouse.

Trev:

Right? Yeah. Yeah, the live thing going back to that it's, there's nothing like live music is there and it's just going to kind of like live Stafford support him wise, obviously, it'd be great to get a nice sort of tour and they're in a dream kind of world man. Who would you like to support like past and present? You know, if you could pick one back that you could learn from? Have a good time with, you know, all of the above my, who would you do? Would you say

Ellis:

to me for I think that the only band that I could ever support that really is I'd have to say the rock concert. I think that there'd be written because they're all all of the musicians within that band of really, really well. educated in the whole music scene and music, business and all that sort of things. I just, I just think that they teach me a lot. As well as probably be just cool. And obviously Jacqueline is still in that band. Era but I'm sure that Brian would probably say Led Zeppelin

Wayne:

talking of Led Zeppelin, I've got something about Led Zeppelin for you guys. I've got the weekly segment called test the guest now elysa and was just hoping you'd like to take part it's all about legs. Good stuff. Test.

Unknown:

Test test

Wayne:

it's a very unique intro there Ellis as you can tell is unique is the polite word. Okay, so it's all just a bit of fun Ellis just four or five questions you guys traders say usually this is the bit where we make fun of trades and get our own back for everything he does to us every day this is a subject he knows a lot about so you know I'm not so you know I could have I should have done is just made up a load of baloney and seen him struggle but I haven't done yet out of India

Unknown:

standard for this show, to be honest, but these are

Wayne:

multiple choice le so you just have a stab if you if you're not sure, but it's all about sampling. So, first question to you, Ellis. In which year did Led Zeppelin make their lie of us debut? Was it 67 1967 1968 1969

Ellis:

Well, I'm gonna say 68

Wayne:

Did you know that or did I guess that?

Ellis:

No, I did not know.

Trev:

He knew all the guests do that. Well, I didn't really know

Unknown:

cola. Yeah.

Ellis:

Robert plump sitting next to me just

Wayne:

sped on your Google any trade that you try and don't have in Robert.

Trev:

JOHN Bonham sitting next to me then I would be freaked out.

Wayne:

question to you into which British thing Recommended Led Zeppelin to Atlantic Records. Was it Dusty Springfield of all people Rod Stewart or Mick Jagger.

Trev:

See the obvious choice is Mick Jagger isn't it

Unknown:

not telling you

Trev:

he's Dusty Springfield, isn't it?

Wayne:

Just got one go on.

Unknown:

I'm just gonna throw it out there and say dusty springs.

Wayne:

I really wanted to give you the other one. No, really? I don't know anything about that. I haven't got any follow up with that. So did you know anything about that Ellis about how she recommended them.

Ellis:

No, but what I did find out Halifax big up to Halifax is one of Halifax on a dusty Springfield's first live shows was in Halifax. Wow. And it was at the at where the mecca bingo is now. But it was

Wayne:

sorry. That was a very respectful

Unknown:

Yes, sorry.

Wayne:

anymore sorry. It's even worse. You've just made that worse. Right question free quickly. Question for question for you, Ellis. john paul Jones once threatened to quit zepplin to do what was it be a policeman? Be a choir Master? Or be a school teacher?

Ellis:

Oh, it looks like a school teacher. I think I think he's definitely a school teacher

Wayne:

is confident it's actually a quiet master.

Unknown:

Really?

Wayne:

Say got no follow up with that. So none of us know anything about so we can elaborate on this one. Unfortunately, there's no sort of follow up. We can't say we got on or if he was ever wrong, like the voice or something. But yeah. I suppose the choir master and a school teacher can be intertwined. Yeah, it's changed over. You know, it

Trev:

might have been being acquired master. I don't I

Wayne:

don't know. You're not allowing the town today. Question 14. In which city did Led Zeppelin play Stairway to Heaven live for the very first time? Was it New York, Belfast or Dallas?

Trev:

Now he is against I don't know this

Wayne:

way. If you were if he was, he's a guest in that time you've taken to answer

Unknown:

rides. Please Dallas.

Wayne:

He said that. He said that is actually Belfast to say no follow up to that. Do you know anything about that? At least?

Ellis:

They said no. But I can ask my

Trev:

older we do know is we each played in every guitar shop in the world. In HP with China guitars.

Wayne:

I say watch just for just for one off test the guest special. I'm going to look for a question out there and whoever answers first about that. Who played the recorder? On Stairway to Heaven? Was it Robert Plant? So you can ask him? john paul Jones or Jimmy Page?

Unknown:

Jimmy Page?

Ellis:

Yeah, I said Jimmy Page as well. Oh, well.

Wayne:

That may not have to give you two is actually john paul Jones called john Stairway to Heaven. So there you go. that knowledge is in your head forever. Now you've taken a test against

Unknown:

john paul Jones head then he was going to be a choir master. He

Wayne:

played lives in the world. Where does he come by RNA recorder. So it's obviously make sense.

Unknown:

You add profile. john paul Jones would have Ed Ellis,

Wayne:

you've you've had a play on Planet Rock. Sorry. Sorry. Planet Rock. Yeah, that's where Trevor sturgeon at is on the show. Can you just tell us a story that come about?

Ellis:

Yes. just pretty much potluck I would imagine. And I was just that on that offer. I had a day off work and I was watching one division, which everybody should watch. And I was just emailing people. I mean, Bundu a lot. We're just sooner the you know, you've got to do all these marketing things. And yeah, just emailing everybody, and just So I've emailed plenty, right? Well, I emailed why I found his email address on Twitter or something like that. And I was just like, Hey, why don't you track here just wondering if you if you like it, and then they emailed me back, I think in like the day after, or something which is present and he was like really like this. Some my family are from Halifax as well. So I'll get this played on the new rock show on Monday night. This was on a Tuesday. And then so he was talking about the following Monday. And then it came to Friday, and I had a I had a text message and a few calls awesome friends. And they were like, they just said you. You saw them on the Planet Rock. And I was like, What? And it was Friday. So I was like, stressing out like, rebrand my brother. Like, everyone started going wild about the fact that was on Polly rock. In fact, you didn't even know it's Planet Rock at that point. And people just messaged us saying, You're on the radio, you're on the radio, it was oh my god. Whoa. And I was at this point. I was like, it was raining and windy. And I was like, trying to take a wheel off a car and stuff. And I was like, What? I'm on the radio, but I'm taking a wheel off like What the hell's going on?

Trev:

And when they make like the movie of you two guys like the Bohemian Rhapsody from that look great in the film, because you'll be like, on the radio, they'll be like, yes, like a montage. You should say that. You said pot the word pot luck, because I heard you on that Friday. And I was actually making a Pot Noodle. When he came on, he said and why it said, these are heavy blues, rock new band, check it out. And I was like, that sounds really good. And then that's how we were lucky enough to get you on here because I obviously shared it on Instagram and new kind of comment and said thanks and stuff. And we've tried to communicate instead. And now you've been good enough to come on here, which is great. And he must really, really thank ya for that. I mean, you met him or

Ellis:

No, I've never met him. Yeah, I've listened to his show a lot. But I've never never had the pleasure of being hated. But yeah, hopefully, hopefully one day I will.

Unknown:

Yeah, that'd be great. Thank him for and that Yeah.

Ellis:

Yeah. I mean, I've been great. we've, we've said it a couple of messages saying thanks for the stuff we're not you know, we're not going to overdo it and stuff like that, as they probably get a little bit late. But yeah, just big up to him for quite as he said,

Trev:

Tommy second that Elisha big up. It's good to get because it's so tough in musicians at the moment are playing live, as I said before, and it's great to see Planet Rock supporting young bands in light, especially with the sort of heavier stuff. Because, you know, I listened to Planet Rock all the time. And I really like it. Oh, yeah, he's a mainstay in my household. And I have to play everything for every everybody. But it's nice to hear something a bit bit dirty under the fingernails, you know, a bit more gritty, you know, rather than Green Day again, you know, but then that's my two cents, you know?

Ellis:

Right, like sometimes there's too many, too many quick details on the on the radio.

Wayne:

Definitely, definitely. Look forward to seeing you on the rising stage. rambling man. Oh, maybe next year? Ellis? It'd be good. Good crowd for you.

Unknown:

It would be?

Wayne:

Yeah. So yeah,

Trev:

I know. I'm rambling man. Yeah. You know, but you'd go by you really would

Ellis:

not be? That'd be great. That'd be absolutely fine. Where is where is

Wayne:

it? Maidstone in Kent issues? No to us. He's only you know, sort of 60 odd miles but for us probably 240 or something but but still. But it would be well worth your time to say the audience would really appreciate. Well, based on yellowbelly blues, you know, totally your music. So, you know, in the rising stage there is exactly for people like yourself, so maybe apply for that LS when you you know, you guys have established yourself a bit more. So, you know, hopefully,

Trev:

you could get what goes to bat so many kind of how do you feel about sort of having an older audience? I don't suppose you really care as long as people listen to you, Dave Ellis? No, I'm

Ellis:

you know, I'm not picky about who listens to us.

Unknown:

I think No. Yeah.

Ellis:

Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

Wayne:

So where can people find out more about the band? Alice, where she links to your various social media and everything?

Ellis:

Yeah, so I think the best place is Facebook, Instagram, that sort of thing. We do have a YouTube channel as well. So if people want to go and follow us on that, then that's a good way of finding out we do actually half the message salesman, we do actually have a mailing list, which is free. And some people will have to sign up for the mailing list. And they'll receive content where before everybody else does. So such as like, I don't know, nurture, and do tickets and all that sort of thing. So if people want to sign up to our mailing lists, then then go for it. Yeah. But I think

Wayne:

think it was good to get up close and personal with somebody we've heard on on the radio Trev Do you agree?

Unknown:

Yeah, definitely. Yeah. Yeah. To be a good thing is you know, it's nice to get a bit of background on him. You know, what their influences are? Where they want to take it The good thing is you are enthusiastic. Yes. They are.

Trev:

You know, in this world of computer music, they just want to play they just want to play in a sweaty club. Get people banging their heads a bit you know, get their arms in the air. Yeah, just just just rock and roll basically

Wayne:

yeah, hopefully as we said we'll hopefully see him on a stage one of our entertaining weekends away at some point so yeah, yeah, to get him on ramblin man or something like that would be terrific would be brilliant. Really would we've set the scene basically for this this season is going to be all about interviewing people when their hobbies or supporting artists in this case obviously music artists what we're saying is you know, musics great all round we've talked about that in previous podcasts but go and support you you haven't come in new bands

Trev:

got to be on it at this moment. That's what they're going to need to get a new deal as soon as this this hopefully is you know is over and stuff with the otherwise you won't get any new music if you don't go out and support them. Go to the venues the venues are suffering if you don't go and go to venues they'll shut down true. And that's not being funny. I love music, but I don't want to sit and just watch bands on a screen for the rest of my life.

Wayne:

No, no, as much as it's nice to have that to accompany everything yeah, you need that you to be straight if you just like what you said earlier described it perfectly for you a sweaty room with lots of half naked men would suit you find that Yeah, well

Unknown:

that is my front room. most weekends. But it's nice to get out. Yeah, exactly. In the sun. Yeah. Rather than have an overpriced,

Wayne:

overpriced pints of law. bloggers and yeah, and all that.

Wayne:

So we've got we've got some great interviews coming up in season two's good fun. Some hobbies you probably would never have thought of taking up but you might after you've heard people talking enthusiastically about him.
