  • Radio.com Interview

    Lovely interview with Dan Weiss of Radio.com which you can read by clicking here. I had a blast chatting with him and, as usual, acted like a total gobshite.

  • Interview With Best Of Baltimore

    I’ve just done an interview with the lovely Sherryn from the Best Of Baltimore Blog. You can read it in full here. Here’s the intro which is lovely for an egomaniac like me to read: “Is anyone else on the inter-webs excited about White Town’s newest album? I know I am not the only one…
