This week Nick talks to BBC Radio 1 presenter and podcaster Phil Taggart all about his noughties indie band Colenso Parade. Having quickly abandoned initial dreams of fronting a rap-metal group, Phil and the rest of Colenso Parade soon settled in to an outfit influenced by the sounds blaring out of MTV2 in the early noughties. They went on to record a handful of EPs and embark on prestigious support slots with the likes of the View, Dirty Pretty Things and Richard Hawley. Sadly, as Phil tells us in this chat, they never quite got a record deal, partly due to a near miss in Liverpool. Want to know what on earth this means? Listen and find out!
