how do you feel about your music being used as incidental background music to TV programs. Do they have to ask your permission, and do you always say yes, or are you a bit selective about it.

Last week Dom Joly used a whole bunch of really cool 80’s tunes on his World Shut Your Mouth show, including Heartbroken, and I seem to remember that Steve McDonald had Perfect Skin playing on his radio while getting ready for his stag night a year or so ago on Coronation Street. Did you think you finally cracked peak time TV entertainment ???

A – I don’t think we have to be consulted. I think we actually made it onto Coranation St sometime in the 80’s, I think playing in the cafe, which was very exciting.
