the loopy popcast

Sister-track to the album Booster8. Recorded and mixed at Valley Studios in Winchester by Ben Startup.

Published: Sun, 01 Dec 2013 22:51:00 GMT

Recordings and interviews from the Booster8 sessions featuring the official launch of Fiat500 as a sister track to the Booster8 album.

We hear about Ben's house arrest in Angola and climb aboard a song he created for his two boys. We bite into Harry Hill's cake and we think about the great first names we have in the band - excluding Tom's of course. Felix hates the editing process and we welcome Dom to the band. We hear from trumpeter James Price and saxophonist Ed Kershaw. We pay tribute to former drummer Giles by singing about his old car. We hope he likes the new album.

Thank you for listening.

You can download Fiat500 from any of our online spaces.
