Interview with Tom Clarke (Ex-The Enemy) (Series 2, Ep 5)

Oct 21, 2019, 11:30 AM
In this episode we bring you an extended interview with Tom Clarke, formerly frontman of chart-topping Coventry indie-rockers The Enemy. Tom is currently recording his debut solo album and gives us exclusive details of his new songs and how a 30-year-old track by legendary post-punks XTC provided his lyrical jumping-off point. He also looks back on the rise and fall of The Enemy and discusses his decision to go public with details of his mental health a few years back. It's a candid and revealing chat and well worth a listen whether you're a fan of the band or not.

Elsewhere, Sarah delves into the Middle Eastern music scene following a hair-raising trip to Egypt and Rick espouses the brilliance of the new Angel Olsen album 'All Mirrors'.
