“It’s like a divorce. You can be as friendly as you like but there’s always a bit of an energy,” says erstwhile Kaiser Chief Nick Hodgson of his interactions with his former bandmates. Nick was the drummer and principal songwriter of indie music behemoths the Kaiser Chiefs, and in 2012, more than a decade after founding the band as a 23-year-old in 2000, Nick decided to bow out to concentrate on other projects, before embarking on a solo career. Describing what it’s like when he sees the other Kaiser Chiefs, Nick elaborates: “It’s a good energy, it’s quite exciting. It’s not like being friends with a normal person who’s your friend.

Courteeners

Posted Oct. 31, 2016, 4:30 p.m.

"People don't want us to fail anymore, which is kind of nice." Liam Fray is considered and introspective when ruminating on the early days of fronting the Courteeners. The Manchester band had a quick ascent from their first shows in 2006, and less than 2 years later Fray was on magazine covers and attracting tabloid attention for his antagonistic remarks towards other bands.
