Josie Long from 'Brain Gandhi'

This week Nick talks to the wonderful comedian and broadcaster Josie Long! Josie talks about four teenage bands - three of which even involved actually playing music. From abortive attempts at piano, clarinet and trumpet, we hear about how Josie went on to emulate the stars of Bassist Magazine, performing in band with names that ranged from the problematic to the bizarre, playing in bohemian warehouses and attempting to recruit South-East London's best teenage guitarist.
