yeah for some reason i dont often bother with compilations but trying to listen to a few more lately. slowly want to work my way through the soul jazz records ones. the stuff ive listened to so far has some real good afrobeat stuff and also some hidden gems from the studio one archives.

Top five artists I've seen before they got BIG

- Arctic Monkeys, playing some boozer in Edinburgh in May 2005

- Sleaford Mods playing Glasgow Broadcast in late 2014

- James Blunt playing a tiny record shop in Edinburgh, c2005. Rod insisted that we go.

- Kaiser Chiefs playing bottom of a three band bill in support of The Ordinary Boys at the Edinburgh Venue in early 2004. They were terrible, but I include them because they were at one point very fucking big. God knows why.

- Kasabian playing the Liquid Room in support of their second single, must have been early 2004. I met them beforehand and they were proper gents tbh. Despite how bad they've become, I've always had a soft spot for the debut album.

That must be the first time since 2004 you've referenced that Ordinary Boys gig without boasting about (unsuccessfully) half-inching Ricky Wilson's tambourine.

1, Getting told to fuck off by Ian Brown outside Derby Assembly Rooms

5, Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods actually being a really nice guy off stage.

The Wynd's top 5 moments

- The time our agreed support act pulled out with hours to go. The sound engineer volunteered to do a set of Sinatra covers instead. By himself. He was brilliant.

- The time a drunk guy insisted, loudly, from the crowd that 'we would never make it'. To which I replied: 'You're bald m8'

- The time we played a gig to about 6 people, one of whom was Ray LaMontagne

- The time a random music blogger from England called FruitbatWalton, who we had never met, suddenly became our biggest fan

- The time AndrewBarryNZ played us on his NZ radio station
