Cornershop - Tonight's Free Lab Radio

Soon to perform in London Ben Ayres of Cornershop gave us an interview plus a medley of their tracks, recent and classic, he's put together for Free Lab Radio.
British indie rock band Cornershop have been going since 1991, formed by Wolverhampton-born Tjinder Singh (singer, songwriter, and guitar) and Ben Ayres on guitar, keyboards, and tamboura and former members Tjinder's brother Avtar Singh (bass guitar, vocals) and David Chambers (drums).  The band famously burned a picture of Morrissey outside EMI's office, photographed by Melody Maker magazine, and were joined later by the likes of Bubbly Kaur on vocals. The band became widely popular after Norman Cook's remix of Brimful of Asher in the 90s and have released 7 albums and many singles since 1991. Ben discusses what he's been listening to, the band's label Ample Play run with Tjinder's wife and their forthcoming gig, as well as brushing aside common misconceptions about the band. Ample play represent The Sufis, Cornershop, The Paperhead, Izzy Lindqwister, Matsuki Ayumu and more.
