Catching up with Kids In Glass Houses

I spent most of yesterday afternoon in the company of Kids In Glass Houses here at BBC Wales as they got set to record sessions for Bethan Elfyn's Radio Wales show and Jen Long's Radio 1 Introducing in Wales.

I sometimes forget what it's like hanging out with bands in their interminable waiting periods between gigs, interviews, sessions and other press work. On one side of the room, their guitar tech Jamie, once of the fantastic Cardiff band Douglas, was reading National Geographic and Time, while on the other side of the room Shay was showing Aled something on his phone which causes disgusted hilarity.

Mind you, the mood was good and Aled was up for recording a short interview before they started their session. (Catch him in a few months and the rigours of press work for their third album, In Gold Blood, may have crushed his joie de vivre a little.)

We chatted about that press work, interacting with fans on their Twitter account and fibbing:

You can catch the session on Bethan's show this Saturday at 5pm, and also hear what promises to be a hilarious pop quiz with the band.
