Matt Berry: Midnight Chats Podcast – Episode 11

For our interview podcast Stuart Stubbs met actor, comedian, writer and musician Matt Berry to talk about night terrors, Toast of London and his latest album 'Small Hours'.

You might well know Matt Berry for his roles in The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh or – a personal favourite – Garth Merenghi’s Dark Place. Or maybe it’s Toast of London for you, a show he created, wrote and starred in as Stephen Toast, the narcissistic actor cheated by the world of showbiz.

Berry’s first love was music, though, and he also releases records via the Acid Jazz label, inspired by his childhood heroes Jean-Michel Jarre and Mike Oldfield.

He releases his fifth album, ‘Small Hours’, on September 16th, influenced by strange dreams, which is one of the subjects we talked about for this episode of Midnight Chats.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
