Richard Hawley

was a member of britpop band Lonpigs and tour guitarist of Pulp before he had a nervous breakdown. Thanks to a drug rehab and the birth of his first child, the son of a Sheffield’s miner, regained the courage to finally find his own voice and write his own beautful and heart-wrenching songs.

Which song do you listen to when...
you go to a club?
Bob Landers - Cherokee Dance

I don’t go to clubs. Unless im DJing – then you are likely to hear rockabilly; «Cherokee Dance» should be played at all clubs but they wouldn’t cus they’re shit, most of them – except where my mate Andy in Manchester has his club «Star and Garter» – that’s proper.
