Podcast :: Under The Bridge #9: We Should Have Gone To University, So We Did

Ian and Jamie Lenman (formerly of Reuben)

“I could go for a lefty, but that’s just messy” – Ian Critchley

After another ‘lost episode’ (one that should have featured guests), here’s episode 9 of Under The Bridge. This week we had a bit of a Reuben theme to our episode. For the ill informed, Reuben was an alternative rock band from Surrey that split up in 2008. There’s a campaign to get their song ‘Christmas Is Awesome’ to the top of the charts this Christmas and we’re fully behind that. Also this week: We announce a new ‘worlds nicest man’, we tell you why NATO canceled an Arcade Fire gig and tell you about a bunch of cool bands touring the US.
