The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 227 – Five Grand Stereo

Five Grand Stereo - band promo shot in a retro style

The London Ear with Chris from Five Grand Stereo

It took two goes but we got there in the end. The gremlins really haven’t liked me over the past couple of weeks, but I was delighted that my chat with Chris from Five Grand Stereo became the first episode of The London Ear for 2019.

During 2018, London based Five Grand Stereo released their album ‘Sex and Money’ and I had Chris on the show to chat about the album. Today’s programme gave Chris the opportunity to play some of the music had influenced the feel and vibe of Sex and Money.

It’s really an album that would sound equally brilliant now or in ‘1975’ as in the title of their new single.

You can find out more about Five Grand Stereo on their website, (where you can also get a Free Download of their David Bowie EP), on Facebook and you can hear the album on Spotify.
