Originally formed in Cornwall, indie four-piece Haven rose to prominence in the early '00s after moving to Manchester. After a string of Top 30 hits and international tours, along with an appearance on Top of the Pops which they admit to still watching daily on YouTube, they split in 2005. With the band reuniting this summer to celebrate the 20th a…
 
Here at Demo Tapes, nothing fascinates us more than someone going solo from a band - particularly if it isn't the frontman. So we were delighted to get Ed Cosens on the show, on the week that the Reverend and the Makers guitarist released his brilliant debut solo album, 'Fortunes Favour'. It's an entertaining trip down memory lane with one of Sheff…
 
Lost Artists is a new occasional feature for Demo Tapes, where we shine a light on criminally under-rated artists from yesteryear - and find out what happened next for them. First up, we've got an interview with Theoretical Girl, aka Amy Sharp. TG emerged as part of the same late '00s Southend music scene as The Horrors and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly…
 
The Long Blondes were one of the most important indie groups of the '00s - great tunes, whip-smart lyrics filled with endless Easter eggs for eagle-eyed listeners and a fashion sense which inspired a generation of music fans. However, the triumphs of their brilliant albums 'Someone To Drive You Home' and '"Couples'" were followed by the tragedy of …
 
We're excited to bring you a bit of a Demo Tapes exclusive this week as Luke Pritchard of The Kooks and his wife Ellie Rose sit down for their first extended joint podcast interview. The pair released their excellent joint album 'Duo' a couple of months back so we wanted to find out all about it, whilst also hitting rewind on their respective music…
 
Legendary music journalist John Robb was the first person to interview Nirvana in the late ‘80s.

John recounts…
 
Behind every great movie - even the silent ones of the early 20th century - is a great soundtrack. On this episode we celebrate our favourite film soundtracks and also find out about how they're put together with writer, director and all round good egg Laura Jean Marsh. Laura is currently in the post-production phase for her love letter to the '00s…
 
This week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of The Strokes' debut EP 'The Modern Age' - so what better time to get band producer Gordon Raphael on the show to talk all about New York's finest? *If you want to skip our prattling on about why we love The Strokes, you can hear the interview at 27:55. It's good prattling though* Gordon gives us…
 
Noughties North London rockers The Holloways formed with a simple premise, outlined in their Top 20 smash and signature song 'Generator': making the music to make you feel better. However, underneath their calypso-pop indie sound and raucously fun live performances was a darker side. Frankly, few bands before or since have suffered as much misfortu…
 
Turin Brakes are a British indie institution so we were delighted to get singer Olly Knights on the show to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the folk heroes' 2001 debut album 'The Optimist LP'.

Their bassist Tom Greatorex joins the show this week to tells us about BW's beginnings, how their debut gig inspired fellow Leodensians Kaiser Chiefs to write I Predict a Riot and why he thinks Yorksh…
 
When we heard someone was making a movie drama about the guitar scene of the mid-'00s we couldn't have been more excited - not least because it sounded like the film version of this very podcast! That someone is writer, director and star of 'Giddy Stratospheres' Laura Jean Marsh, and she joins the show to talk to us about her inspirations for the f…
 
Young Knives recently returned with their first album in seven years, the brilliantly bonkers 'Barbarians' - and we've got them on the show to tell us all about it.

The Orielles have released one of our favourite albums of this (or any) year in ‘Disco Volador’, so we were delighted to get all three of them on the show to tell us all about it. The Halifax indie trio explain their intergalactic inspirations, how the planets aligned when they formed the band a few years back and how they’re planning to turn ‘Disc…
 
The Paddingtons were one of the leading lights of the London grot'n'roll scene of the mid '00s - despite being from, er, Hull. Singer Tom Atkin and bassist Lloyd Dobbs join this week's episode to reminisce about the raucous squat party gigs that helped them make their name, what it was like being feted by Pete Doherty (and slated by Liam Gallagher)…
 
Demo Tapes is back on the podcast airwaves after an extended break! And who better to kick off Series 3 than one of our most popular previous guests, Tom Clarke? The former frontman of chart-topping indie-punks The Enemy returns to the show to talk us through his debut solo album 'The Chronicles of Nigel', a concept album that sounds like nothing e…
 
How do you go from being one of the musical sidekicks to the world's most notorious rock star Pete Doherty to a psychotherapist to the stars? This is the question we put to sometime Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek in this episode. Adam invited Rick down to his clinic in central London for a good old chinwag about his unusual career change and some …
 
You may not know the name but you will definitely know the face.

Now a filmmaker, he talks to us about his latest documentary, focused on alcoholism in the music industry. The film feat…
 
Up in Smoke I made this podcast as a demo tape for a contract position at the National Institutes of Health Intramural Research Program. Since the position involved telling scientific stories I interviewed Jeff Ballin about the Vaping and some of the dangers that have become associated with it. Additionally, we talked about the new methodologies be…

Rick and John also reminisce about …
 
In this episode Sarah sits down for an interview with The Twang frontman Phil Etheridge as the Birmingham band prepare to release their new album 'If Confronted Just Go Mad'. Given the Brummie baggy rockers have racked up 15 years in the music scene, there's plenty of ground to go over and Phil pulls no punches. Heralded as the best new band in Bri…

Elsewhere, Rick and Sarah examine the '90s/Britpop revival engulfing modern music and look at both sides of the coin - was it a scene worth…
 
Sufficiently Advanced This podcast was produced for a position at Cyberwire as an audio editor. Since it was a tech company I decided to focus on emerging tech, which for this episode was self-driving cars. Still threw in some sociology and philosophy because how can we talk about tech without talking about how it affects our society. All music was…
 
With Reverend and the Makers having released their Best Of album this week we've got frontman Jon McClure on the line to look back over the band's career, reflect on their recent career resurgence and, frankly, settle a few scores. "I’ve never really told the true story of our band the way I did on this podcast," Jon explains and it's an unmissable…
 
The Prologue Notes This news podcast was produced for NPR and Slate applications. I decided to cover an emerging news story and to give it the historical context that is often lacking in television reporting. The major difficulty was deciding which events to summarize and how short of a summary should they be. In my reporting I tried to go for an u…

Pride and After Pride This demo tape was made for the National Center for Transgender Equality. This is less of a podcast and more of an audio essay since the position was for a storytelling trainer rather than in podcast production. The audio essay was written by Luci Lyons and describes their life experience. All music was composed by Kevin MacLe…
 
It's Not Just Propaganda I made this demo tape for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). The primary mission of the USHMM is to educate people about the Holocaust and to try to prevent future genocides from happening. Since part of the position was that of researcher, I searched through the USHMM digital collection to find primary do…
 
Wait... why is this a bad thing? This podcast was made about the Kashmir controversy that was going on during August 2019. The Quincy Institute is a bipartisan think tank who's mission is to produce policy papers to American military intervention overseas. I decided that covering a U.S. foreign policy crisis would make a good impression. In this po…

We're hitting rewind as usual, but doing something a bit different this week - and talking through our own musical memories.
