Song writing, writers block and writing songs for live audiences

Following our first ever episode 001 with Paul Smith of Maximo Park, this week Ben meets up with Maximo's guitarist Duncan Lloyd to talk song writing, writers block and writing songs for live audiences.

We were keen not to totally replicate the interview with Paul, however at the same time, we were interested in getting Duncan's view on some similar topics to get a different perspective on life within the same band.

As you might imagine, this lent itself to a really interesting discussion, with Duncan providing great insights into how he writes songs, with a focus on regular breaks to check the quality. 

The good cause this week is St Oswald’s hospice.
