Metronomy: Midnight Chats Podcast – Episode 08

Joseph Mount talks about European football championships, his love of tracksuits and why he won't tour their fifth album 'Summer 08'.

Joe Mount is a fascinating character, and so is his solo project-come-band Metronomy. Five albums in, and eight years since the release of Metronomy’s second album, ‘Nights Out’, he’s made the sister LP to that breakthrough record, ‘Summer 08’, out next month.

This edition of Midnight Chats took place in a sweltering office boardroom at Joe’s label, Because Music, on the opening day of the Euros. We chatted about the football for a bit before moving onto other important topics of the day, like tennis, tracksuits, Honda internet chat rooms and how by becoming a DJ Joe has fallen in love with ‘the drop’.

Previous guests on the podcast include Shock Machine (James Righton, ex-Klaxons), Kate Jackson (formerly of The Long Blondes), Gold Panda, Cat’s Eyes, Saul Williams, Polica and The Invisible’s Dave Okumu.

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.
