Interview With Emily Capell

Posted on by Steve Russell

SR: I was listening to Robert Elms last Friday and he mentioned a letter and disc you had sent him. He went on to say that he liked your EP and the fact that you were a QPR fan was a good start! I really like the track too. When did you record that Emily? EC: The track that Robert Elms played on his show was recorded at the end of last year. It’s a track called ‘Brixton Prison’ and … Continue reading

Interview With Andy Miller of Dodgy

Posted on by Site Admin

SR: Andy, I read in the local Chronicle that you share a birthday with Keith Richards, have you ever met him ? AM: Sadly no, I have never got the call. I have met some big names, but I’ve never been a name dropper mainly because when I did meet anyone significant there wasn’t much to say about it afterwards….except when I met Stan Bowles. We played in a Soccer 6 tournament at the Phoenix Festival back in ’96 and … Continue reading

Interview With Stephen Lynch

SR: I didn’t realise that you were such a big R’s fan, how did that come about ?

Interview With Kevin Gallen – Part One

Posted on by Site Admin

PF: First question is from jjcolls. Which front men did you enjoy playing with in your time at Rangers ? KG: Well, obviously I would say Les Ferdinand, great player as everyone knows. Great thrill when you’re a young lad starting off in your professional career and you get to play with someone with so much experience, so much quality.

Interview With Mark Lazarus – Part Two

Posted on by Site Admin

SR: Did the team know at the start of the 66-67 season that it would be a ‘special’ one, were the players aware that we would be the team to beat ? ML: I can honestly say that yes, we knew it would be special because of the previous season, when we had finished third. Without sounding big headed, we knew that we were more than good enough for the Third Division. We played some good football, we were a … Continue reading
