The Northern Soul Podcast: The Slow Show
Hurrah and huzzah! It’s time for The Northern Soul Podcast.
This month Lucy McNamara trips down to the Horse & Jockey in Chorlton to chat to Rob Goodwin from The Slow Show. Known for their minimal but epic songs which swell from gentle piano-led Americana to roaring choruses and string sections, this Manchester five-piece have found champions at BBC 6 Music and Radio 2 and have played in Europe to large, sold-out audiences, as well as supporting Elbow.
Also on this month’s podcast, Lucy previews must-see gigs across the North of England and plays great music including Patti Smith, Ghostpoet, Milk and Bone, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bop English, GoGo Penguin and U.S. Girls.
You can get in touch with Lucy via Twitter @Lucy_McNamara or via Northern Soul @Northern_Soul_

@PurpleGooner Phenomenal Woman is our favourite but love the fact the congresswomen in the US are quoting this one in response to Trump.
People shouting 'send her back' at Trump rallies, the future PM waving a kipper around, warnings of a UK recession thanks to Brexit. We've never felt so simultaneously depressed and baffled by the state of the world. Think we'll look at photos of kittens for the rest of the day.
Thought for the Day: "You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise." - Maya Angelou
