After a five year hiatus, brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll have have reunited for a sell out UK tour this month. For the third appearance on 6 Mix, the band - aka brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll - share some of the music they loved as teenagers growing up in Surrey inspired them to make music, including tracks by The B52s, Dead Or Alive, Tangerine Dream and Madness. There's also an exclusive mix from Paul Hartnoll in the last hour of the show made up of records created using 'expensive 1980s samplers', featuring tunes from ABC, Propaganda and Art Of Noise.
