XFM Manchester Interview

Andy Spoke to XFM Manchester’s Pete Mitchell on Sunday there. I managed to grab a wee minute of the interview (cheers to Slow Hands at Doves board for the heads up) which you can listen to here. The bit missing is basically just Andy talking about how somebody suggested they should revisit Blue Water for the Best Of. What you will hear is Andy talk about the origins of Andalucia and the band’s plans for the rest of the year.

You may have noticed with the previous blog post, we have a new author on the blog. A big thank you to Madeleine aka BlackEyedAngel at doves board for offering to help out during this busy time. Madeleine has the great advantage of being based in North West England, so will have access to articles like the one she posted about below that I do not over here! The fresh input is never a bad thing also, the blog will only benefit as a result.

To those who have asked about status of doves.net.. Not sure to be honest though I do know the site will have a fresh new look which should be going live any day now, so that may be why the site is down.

Jimi Interview on XFM

Just a wee interview Jimi did earlier this evening, on XFM. You can download it here. Anyone from Leicester listening, sorry there is no gig there. Jimi meant Lincoln. 🙂

Jimi on XFM Tonight!

Jimi will be on XFM’s Razor Cuts tonight chatting with Pete Mitchell. There is a good chance I will miss this, so if you happen to record it, let me know.
