Sweet 16 with Joe Mount from Metronomy

Skate videos, fudge shops and Battle of the Bands

When Joe Mount recalls his 16-year-old self he remembers a guy who was “pretty great”. It certainly sounded like he was having a great time – growing up in Totnes, Devon he founded the local skate park with his mates, worked in a fudge shop and drummed in his first band The Upsides – who should have gone onto great things. Metronomy did instead.

Recorded in front of a live audience at the Erased Tapes Sound Gallery, London, on 23 April 2018, this is the second episode of our Sweet 16 podcast – inspired by our column of the same name.
