Did they air it? I thought they were going to play it (and do interview) around 8:30 UK Time.
Only 08:15 here in UK.

Scratchy phone interview rather than Neil in the studio, oh well.
Here's a download link for anyone else who likes collecting these or would like to listen.

Hmmm, not sure about this. Sounds very much like a mediocre filler track. No tune or chorus. Sounds a bit Jamiroquai!

It's like a bad cover version of Good Times. And what happened to the chimpanzee line? Cut from the edit?

Not able to get to a radio but have they been interviewed already and if yes, any further ‘exciting‘ news?
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

I'm listening in, and will publish a summary once the interview finishes.

I like it, but past the cool funk get lucky vibe, it doesn't go much further than that.

Neil is a very unconvincing hell-raiser, for sure.... it has some tragi-comic appeal as the desperate last hurrah of a septuagenarian!

Neil had some friends over for dinner on New Year's Eve.

Parlophone contract was initially 7 albums (I think we knew this already).

What to expect from Hotspot: 'flavour of Berlin' but mainly 'it's a very melodic album'. Several dance tracks, pretty poppy, but a few tracks that reflect that Berlin 'dance sound'.

How does the writing process change - only technology, it's still 'Chris and I in a room' and 'we really enjoy doing it'.

on 'Monkey Business' - it's a 'groove song'... Chris and Neil were in Austin, Texas - someone approached them, and told them he was 'on Monkey Business, just playing around'.

Song now playing...
