After being cryogenically frozen for the past six months, I have now been thawed out and am ready to present the long-awaited "part two" of Leo Hoek van Dijke's exclusive interview with a certain Mr Mick Quinn...
If you've forgotten all about it, here's a quick recap: Leo interviewed Mick on 07 November 2005 before Supergrass's show at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. Previously you could only read Part One
of the interview, but now you have the added bonus of Part Two
which completes the interview.
Apologies for keeping everyone waiting so long, and many apologies and thanks to Leo.

There's good news and bad news tourwise, the good news is that the Danny and Rob will definitely be back for the Japan and North American dates, they were only otherwise occupied for the European dates. Bad news is that there will now be no Australian/New Zealand tour as was rumoured in October.
Starting the new year as I mean to go on, I've added four new articles that I've had lying around for a while. I will hopefully get around to having the second half of the interview with Mick transcribed soon.
