Sep 30, 2014, 09:28 AM

Original member of British large ensemble Loose Tubes, frontman of pop group Freak Power and recent X-Factor dismissal Ashley Slater spoke with Chris Philips about a year of contrasting experiences in music.

Ashley speaks about the triumphant reformation and comeback gigs of the Tubes and a frank account of trying his luck on the "brutal" X-Factor with his group Kitten & The Hip.

The normally wry Ashley, famously edgy spokesperson for Loose Tubes live gigs, is still on great form.
