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.
