6Music

(c) 6Music.


The Distractions were featured on Thursday's Radliffe and Maconie Show on 6Music when they were joined by David Quantick.  Time Goes By So Slow was played after the group's story was told, from TJM's You're Not Going Out Dressed Like That, to FAC12 and Island's Nobody's Perfect (not forgetting the U2 story).  Mark Radcliffe reckoned this show was the first on 6Music to play The Distractions, and Stuart Maconie discussed the forthcoming gig at Paul Heaton's Kings Arms in Salford on 31st August.  The new album, The End of the Pier, was announced before the listeners were treated to the finest Factory 7" record.  Listen to the whole show here for a limited period (The Distractions are on from about 1:55:25):  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b01g9dbh.
