Tonight I was joined in the studio for a second time by three-quarters of Political Hesitation (l-r Alex, Conor, George). Since their first appearance on the show back in May, they’ve recorded a new EP, from which we heard a selection of tracks tonight, and started gearing up for plenty more gigs. Their next gig is at Chinnery’s in Southend on November 21st, where they’ll be supported by Defy, The Penny Antics and The Red Steves. Head over to their Facebook, Instagram and Bandcamp pages for more news and to hear the EP!
