For issue 258 of United We Stand, I interviewed United season ticket holder and electronic music-maker Paul Scott, aka Lippy Kid. During the interview, Scott told of his love of the Hacienda, how he started following the Doc’s Red Army, and the recent 6 Music and Mary Anne Hobbs support for his music.
Here is a link to the Lippy Kid website, which contains a free download of the Echoes and Answers album.
For issue 254 of United We Stand, I caught up with Rob Cross, singer/guitarist with Orphan Boy, and former favourite at BUSK at The Garratt. He told me about the Orphans’ recent reformation, and their brilliant new album ‘Coastal Tones’, which i really do recommend. I bumped into the band in town after the United-Liverpool game in September, so arranged to do an interview with them for the next issue now that they were back out playing music again.
I also spoke to Rory Sakalas, a professional backline technician for the likes of Jack Savoretti, The Ting Tings, Echo and the Bunnymen, Courteeners and The XX. He told me about life behind the scenes setting up a stage, touring the world, and watching the football on the road.

Part 2 of the interview with Rory was in issue 255, along with an interview held with Manhester band The Slow Readers Club, who have just finished their winter tour in the year they released their second album ‘Cavalcade’, another great album of 2015.
