    Remembering Ewen MacIntosh, here's a few moments of our chat in 2019. He kindly agreed to do this podcast when I introduced myself on the 177 bus in Peckham; we exchanged numbers and he met me at Soho Radio to record this. RIP Ewen.

    From first bands to EE's 7th album, Jonathan Higgs has surged through a path of his own. He talks new album Mountainhead (out 1 March), acidentally nicking a flowerpot while live on Radio 1 and the moment his keyboard crashed through itself during a quiet live moment. Photo: Steve Gullick

ChipperChelseaK ,

So happy you interviewed Dimash!!

I was so surprised to see you interviewed Dimash Kudaibergen! I really enjoyed it and loved how you tried to get answers as to what he does for enjoyment besides music. It’s a question he doesn’t answer much 😆 He didn’t really answer it here either. I love him either way though!
