back on form...
He's been lazy of late - barely turning up to the studio, leaving Phil and Mikey to do the hard work of hosting - but Vile reckons he is back with a bang this week. Fresh from being on TV, Gabriella Cilmi drops by for a chat with a audibly bashful Vile (listen how cute he sounds, stumbling over his questions). Then he nips off too a secret location to meet with Black Hearted Press, who are currently living up to their name by brutally slaying members of the royal family (in a comic book. No pampered aristocrats were harmed in the making of Royal Descent).
Finally, he goes underground to get the name of Tidy Carnage wrong, ahead of their show at The Arches and their contribution to Theatre Uncut.
Middlemusic's dynamic duo take care of business while Vile is off chatting to his famous friends.
It is a pretty cool set of people he managed to get this time.
