As Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods release a 10-year anniversary edition of their breakthrough album Divide & Exit, frontman and lyricist Jason Williamson revisits the album that changed his life, the time he threw the bleakest album release party of all time, and how he finally found success in his 40s on his 7th album.    You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 139: AURORA on this moment of human crises, why fame is sh*t and her music husband Brian Eno

Look around and you’d be forgiven for feeling the world is completely broken in 2024. War. Division. Crises. How did we get here? That’s the fundamental question Norwegian songwriter AURORA explores on her latest album What Happened To The Heart?. It’s a project that is technicolor in feeling, and in sound. Host Greg Cochrane went to meet her to talk about activism, conflict and why she and the iconic Brian Eno are like “an old married couple”. It’s a deep listen, for sure, but these are deep times – even if you can focus on the glimmers of light.  You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 138: Glastonbury 2024 Review! Our verdict on Dua Lipa's headliner debut, SZA's sound shambles and Coldplay's weird alien heads

Stuart got the hot ticket. Greg did not. In the field, and from the sofa at home, Midnight Chats does Glastonbury 2024.  Your hosts tackle the biggest talking points from the most famous music festival in the world. Did Dua Lipa fulfill her promise to turn Worthy Farm into a club on her headliner debut? Was SZA's microphone fresh out of batteries? Did Coldplay bring the world together in a moment of communal feeling, or was it a bad acid trip? Did Louis Tomlinson steal a TV from the local Curries? All these essential questions answered, and more. What did you make of this episode.

Ep 137: Yard Act and Rose Matafeo on meeting at Glastonbury, winks from Rod Stewart and Greg Davies’ Desert Islands Discs

James Smith from Leeds band Yard Act met New Zealand comedian Rose Matafeo at Glastonbury festival a couple of years ago when the pair were watching little Simz. Since then, Smith's group has invited Matafeo to sing on their second album, Where's My Utopia?, star in one of their music videos and open for them in their hometown. What better excuse did we need to get them both in a room to discuss the time Rose accidentally put her hand up Jools Holland's back just after Rod Stewart winked at her, the horrible gig that led to James writing the song Rose would become the face of, what Taskmaster is really like to film, and how James and Yard Act will attempt to navigate this year's Glastonbury.  Watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 136: Foals’ Yannis Philippakis on collaborating with icon Tony Allen, his love of gardening and what happens next with Foals

Frontman with one of Britain’s biggest modern rock bands, Yannis Philippakis recently launched Yannis & The Yaw – not so much a solo project, more of an experiment in collaboration. Dial back seven years and Yannis spent time writing songs with one of his heroes, the icon drummer Tony Allen – godfather of Afrobeat and distinguished collaborator with everyone from Damon Albarn to Air. The result is a posthumous project – Allen died in 2020 – titled ‘Lagos Paris London’ released in August 2024.  Yannis goes deep with host Greg Cochrane about his “cross generational” bond with Allen, and the other legendary artists he'd love write with Yannis & The Yaw. Plus, he discusses the evolving future of his band Foals, chats about his passion for gardening and why he’s writing music for some contemporary theatre productions.  You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 135: St. Vincent on her acting debut, an apprenticeship in The Polyphonic Spree and near misses with Steve Albini

Annie Clark has been recording as St. Vincent since 2007, collaborating with David Byrne and Paul McCartney along the way, and proving herself as one of the best guitarists (and songwriters) in the world.  In more recent years she's written a number one hit single (aren't they all) for Taylor Swift, co-written and starred in her debut feature film, The Nowhere Inn, with her close friend Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney, and released her 7th album All Born Screaming in April 2024.  On this week's show she talks with Stu about her early years in mid-00s CULT band (in every sense of the word) The Polyphonic Spree, why nobody liked her film, her close encounters with Steve Albini, and how she got childhood hero Dave Grohl to drum on her new record.

Ep 134: Lynks on ditching earnest music for the life of a masked entertainer and new queer icon

South Londoner Lynks used to make the type of straight-faced, emotional music that all of his friends were making, until one day, for a bit of fun, he decided to adopt a masked drag persona and lean into being an entertainer. His thumping alt. pop songs since have centred around his experiences as a young queer person, with songs about sex with strangers delivered with a bluntness that is matched by Lynks' wicked sense of humour. This is, after all, an artist that also has a song exclusively about how to make a bechamel sauce.  Speaking in April 2024 with Stu before his show in Cambridge, England, Lynks discusses the moment he unexpectedly unlocked his successful new act, how he approached debut album Abomination, what could be expected from his camp, prop-heavy show that night, and why it's more satisfying to make people dance than cry with your music.  Watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 133: Future Islands' Sam T. Herring on his move into acting, his love for Everton football club and his band's ongoing "underdog" mentality

Sam T. Herring’s distinctive growl and spectacular dance moves may still be one of the best known things about Future Islands, but away from the chest-thumping on stage he's a charismatic, thoughtful and humble guy.  Greg Cochrane caught up with him to talk about his recent move into acting (he starred in TV series The Changling last year), the heartbreak channeled in Future Islands’ most recent album ‘People Who Aren't There Anymore’ and why he’s a diehard follower of an average British football team (sorry, Everton fans).  You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 129: GRIFF

It’s surprising to find 23-year-old British songwriter GRIFF’s feet firmly on the ground, given her extraordinary experiences the past three years.  It’s been a steep rocket ride: from bedroom songwriter to a powerful breakthrough performance at the BRITs, and onto the stages of stadiums with Dua Lipa and Ed Sheeran. Coldplay’s Chris Martin is such a fan the duo collaborated on the song ‘Astronaut’.  And so here we are in 2024, and GRIFF is preparing to release her debut album vertigo in July. Not before she tells Greg Cochrane about growing up in sleepy Hertfordshire feeling like an outsider, being a foster sibling and eating chips with her all time icon Taylor Swift.  You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod.

Ep 127: Brian Eno

Surprise! When you get an icon like Brian Eno on the podcast, it cannot wait until our usual Monday night drop. So we come to you early.  Welcome to this special, bonus "Earth Day" (22 April) edition of the podcast. Brian Eno is a trailblazing musician, producer and activist. Working with everyone from U2 to Talking Heads, Coldplay to Grace Jones, he's also deeply passionate about climate action, and is the co-founder of Earth/Percent. Today they launch Sounds Right where a group of huge artists are releasing new music where "NATURE" is the featured artist, and receives credit and royalty. A radically simple initiative. No biggy, but Brian's song is one he originally co-wrote with David Bowie. 'Get Real' features hyenas and some wild pigs.  Greg Cochrane went to his legendary studio in London in March 2024 to record this conversation.  You can watch clips of the podcast online now, just give us a follow on Instagram @midnightchatspod. He also talks about the release of the "definitive Brian Eno documentary" – a new movie premiering in London on about the story of his life. This is Eno, though, there is a twist. It's a generative film powered by AI so will be different everytime it's screened. Plus, he demos Greg some previously unheard music and talks about the geopolitical state of the world in 2024.  Enjoy.

Maybe you were reminded of the genius songwriting of US duo MGMT when their song ‘Time To Pretend’ recently popped up on the Saltburn film soundtrack?

Ep 125: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

Melbourne band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard don't just make a LOT of records (they've released 25 since they started 11 years ago); each one comes with a different experiment at the heart of it. There's the thrash metal record; the collaborative jazz record; the microtonal record; one made exclusively on acoustic instruments; one that plays on an infinity loop. And on and on.  Their latest (if you're quick enough), doesn't feature guitars at all – The Silver Cord is the rock band's synth only album, which we discuss a little on episode 125 of MC, with band leader Stuart Mackenzie. Along with what he remembers from those previous 24 albums, the band's origins on the Melbourne scene, and how on earth King Gizzard will come to end. If it ever will.  Give the show a follow on Instagram and TikTok at @midnightchatspod. This episode was recored in October 2023.

The list could go on. Yet, the former Alabama Shakes frontwomen - and x5 Grammy Award winner - is totally grounded. Not to mention a total blast to hang out with. She spoke to Greg Cochrane from her home in Nashville, where they were joined by her two dogs Wanda and Willie. They spoke about Brittany's love of angling, meditation and ignoring her smartphone; how she's humbled by the admiration from her musician peers; Brittany's love of the her local LGBTQ+ community; whether Alabama Shakes could ever re-unite.  Plus, she shares what must be one of THE great stories about playing a show at Prince's legendary home and studio, Paisley Park.  Recorded in January 2024.
