Start the Music! 005 – Alan Hempsall

Episode 005 – Alan Hempsall

This episode it’s all about punk and post punk in this weeks fascinating interview. We have two great American bands and two tracks from our guest Alan Hempsall from the UK band Crispy Ambulance. If you have seen the indie movie/biographical film CONTROL about the life of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, you may recognize his name. This is a long episode folks, we’re getting close to an hour territory. I promise to talk as little as possible.
