    Lauren was away, so Nemone took the reins for another bumper week of sessions and interviews. On Tuesday, she was joined by Geoff Barrow of Portishead for a chat about the 20th anniversary of their seminal album, Dummy, and the future plans of the band. On Thursday, the magnificent Barr Brothers brought in their collection of antique instruments, including a double bass from the mid-19th Century, for a live session, and they charmed the socks off of everyone in the studio. In Friday Film Club, Chris Hewitt reviewed Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, and The Million Dollar Arm.
