Jacco Gardner – Molly Chard had a quick chat to the Dutch singer-songwriter about his latest LP Hypnophobia ahead of a rare gig at the Georgian Theatre in Stockton.

Sleaford Mods – in an extended interview in which most of what they talked about was actually allowed to stay on the record, Lee Fisher talked to Jason Williamson about the duo’s latest LP Key Markets, growing older, not being a dick and Johnny Marr’s beef with the band.

Sweet Baboo – Stephen Black, aka Sweet Baboo, talked to Lee Hammond about The Boombox Ballads and his love of the north east before he played at the Cluny this week.
