First of all, apologies. I’ve probably lost a lot of readers over the past few months who have probably thought I’ve given up this blogging malarkey for something else. I hope this compensates.
Last December I had the pleasure of chatting to Paddy McAloon on the phone for over an hour. The transcript was published here and it went down pretty well. A number of people asked me to publish the audio but I was reluctant. Firstly, the quality wasn’t great, having been recorded using a telephone recording service and secondly, I was a little concerned that Paddy wouldn’t be happy about it. But I have relented and to be honest, I need to get my hits up so I’ve done it.
I’ve done a little editing, tried to clean up the audio and added some contextualising music clips.
Happy Christmas and enjoy!
