Fuse FM's James Stranks interviewed Beth Jeans Houghton and the Hooves of Destiny after they played in Manchester last month, where they talked about the best places to tour, cheap food and the advantages of LA over most of the UK.
Lazy Habits at Band On The Wall, Robert Foot
Building the ensemble section by section at the start of their show, Lazy Habits made an explosive entrance onto the stage. With the audience having greatly enjoyed the Western folk via Manchester stylings of John Fairhurst beforehand, with one of the first instances of a line of gig-goers doing barn dancing that I have ever seen at a gig being ever present through the hard-edged second half of his set, they were ready for the headline act to take the stage, and they did not disappoint.
Today James Sandford put on his Sunday best and head down to the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital as the Queen unveiled a plaque at it's official opening. Crowds of people turned out and weren't dissapointed as the queen arrived in her car waving to happy onlookers and took to the stage for a quick performance of a specially commissioned piece of music by the Royal Northern Collage of Music and to unveil that comemorative plaque. Here is his breif recording of the action.

Michael Kiwanuka Ruby Lounge
I was delighted to see that BBC Sound of 2012 decided to use it’s powers for good this year by making Michael Kiwanuka it’s deserving winner. He’s exactly the kind of artist the poll should be promoting, not the Jessie Js of this world who probably won’t struggle to appeal to the drooling masses.
