Martin Courtney

Interview: Martin Courtney

October 31, 2015 | 0 Comments

Given that he is partially responsible for the dreamy sounds of Real Estate and wholly responsible for the beautiful, jangly strains of Many Moons, his first solo record, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Martin Courtney comes across as a singularly laid back guy. Very little phases the man, clearly, and his unpretentious attitude to work, love...

Midge Ure

Interview: Midge Ure

Midge Ure is a man of few words. But after over forty years in the business, perhaps that’s to be expected: the man doesn’t need to engage himself in idle myth-making.
