Resurrection - show 152 - 06 Aug 2021

Really enjoyed our chat this week with Amelia Fletcher, currently starring in not one but two band, The Catenary Wires and Swansea Sound!

Amelia has been a big part of the independent music scene since the 1980s, having performed in many influential bands including Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, The Pooh Sticks, Marine Research and Tender Trap.

We chatted a little about the early days and lots more about the current goings on of her two bands.
