It was yet another busy week for Team Laverne, although Lauren herself was caught poorly for some of it. Nemone stepped in to bring us a live session from Carl Barât & the Jackals on Tuesday. He talked about juggling that project with the newly reformed Libertines, and played two tracks from the Jackals’ record. Lauren was back for a chat with Karl Hyde on Thursday. He took the opportunity to announce Underworld’s tribute to house legend Frankie Knuckles – a cover of ‘Baby Wants to Ride’, with all proceeds from the record going to the Frankie Knuckles Fund. We had an exclusive first play of that track. Rounding off a busy week, Nemone hosted a session from former Doves members, Jez and Andy Williams, and their new psych-rock project, Black Rivers. The brothers talked about scaling down for their new release, and clarified some things about Doves’ “indefinite hiatus”.

This week, the multi-national and multi-talented All We Are stopped by to play tracks from their debut album. They told Lauren about coming to terms with the fact that three guitarists is two too many in a band of three members. Horrible Historian and author of ‘A Million Years in a Day’, Greg Jenner, dropped in to blow our minds with some incredible little facts about the stuff that we take for granted, like potatoes and punctuation. Empire Magazine’s Chris Hewitt gave us a rundown of this week at the pictures, reviewing the Martin Luther King film, Selma, and the Wachoska Brothers’ latest effort.
