It has been over a year since we had Martin Creed in session, so let's pull up a pew and chew the cud this evening.

The Turner Prize winner has been busy recording and playing live since he was last in Marc's company. His debut album, Love to You, was released early July on Moshi Moshi. He teamed up with the Nice Nice Boys (Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand and Andy Knowles from Johnny Marr & The Healers) to record his 40 minute ode to love and hate songs, and we love it round these parts.

It's going to be a fantastic session tonight, the writing's on the wall!
