Aereogramme interview MP3

Just bumped into an MP3 of an Aereogramme interview from their 'Seclusion' promo tour. I think I've plugged the brilliant mini-album 'Seclusion' before.
Aereogramme are the rightful heirs to the God Machine throne, in as much that they're not clones but do their own thing. A lazy journalist could describe their sound as a mix between Mogwai and The God Machine. I'm even more lazy than a lazy journalist so I won't even try to describe it. (just check out this mp3 from their site)
Anyway I'm posting this interview as the God Machine is mentioned several times in it. BTW, Aereogramme are currently recording their third full-length album.

UPDATE: Blimey! I forgot to post the actual link to the interview. Without it this is a pretty pointless blog entry! So here we go:

Oh and don't forget to send me your MP3's for the Radio Blog fan edition!!

Radio Blog: fan edition no. 1

The Radio Blog needs some serious updating. I'd like the next Radio Blog to be one with contributions from Sophia fans. So if you're in a band and you want one of your songs in the next Radio Blog send me an e-mail with:
- one or two mp3's
- band name and song title(s)
- website URL (if you have one, that is)
- a tagline to introduce your band ("Death metal marching band from Swindon, UK. Available for all your weddings and bar mitzvahs")

Send it all to: wouterberteloot [at] gmail [dot] com before the end of the month.
