Stars and Sons

Click here to listen again to the interview

Stars and Sons are on a mission - and that mission is to play thirty gigs in just seven days! And the first one was on Monday morning here at Phoenix FM's studios.

Sadly, thanks to the wonderful Brook Street roundabout, the band turned up an hour later than they'd hoped which put them on a tight schedule as they were meant to be at Sheffield by lunchtime! So just like the Apollo missions, two of the band - Mike and Luke - ventured out of the capsule and into the rarified air of the Phoenix FM studio while Stuart took on the Michael Collins role and stayed in orbit in New Road, watching out for traffic wardens.

Stand-in breakfast presenter Graham Stannard was on hand to chat to them about their marathon week ahead and we were rewarded with two songs - Out Of View and If It's Good For Me.

The band are now based in Brighton, although frontman/ukulelist Mike Lord is an Essex boy and famously worked at Colchester Zoo.
