Sweet 16 with Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip

Wrestling, pretentious films, sobriety and Liam Gallagher

Hot Chip formed at Elliot School, Putney. For the final episode of Series One of Sweet 16, Alexis Taylor recalls those days the wrestling with Joe Goddard, being down on Britpop but getting Liam Gallagher’s autograph, and staying sober while everyone else drank themselves sick.

Recorded in front of a live audience at Erased Tapes Sound Gallery, London, on 30 April 2018, listen below or via your podcast app.

Check out the rest of Series One, with Joe Mount of Metronomy, Joe Talbot of Idles and Theresa Wayman of Warpaint.

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.
