The Northern Soul Podcast: Affairs
Hurrah! It’s May’s Northern Soul Podcast.
This month Lucy McNamara chats to Manchester-based band, Affairs. From scattered English counties, the group met at Hull University, drawn together by their mutual appreciation of 80s music, art, slick hair, tight jeans and loose hips. Comparisons have been drawn to artists as diverse as Foals, The Smiths, Wild Beasts and Spandau Ballet.
You can get in touch with Lucy via Twitter @Lucy_McNamara or via Northern Soul @Northern_Soul_

@AdamJFarrer I have a cat who is a ferocious hunter and regularly wakes me up in the night by slapping me across the face. She's afraid of cat flaps, blankets, plastic bags, my tummy rumbling, and anything on TV that's not Foyle's War.
