Kaiser Chiefs - Nick Hodgson on 'I Predict A Riot', his 'magic piano', doing it differently, and songwriting for others

Jul 30, 11:01 PM
This week on The Boys in the Band Podcast we talk to Nick Hodgson formerly of Kaiser Chiefs, on their rise to becoming one of Britain's biggest bands, the mega hit I Predict A Riot and the massive shows which followed. 
   
From how the band rebelled against the image many of their contemporaries were chasing at the time to how tracks like Ruby came together with the help of his mum and dad's 'magic piano', Nick lifts the lid on the inner workings of the group. 

He also has some standout stories from award shows, their huge homecoming gig at Elland Road, and their appearance at the 2012 Olympics.
