Friday's done and the chat was fun!

The HP Chatroom had a storming first day with appearances from Jinx Lennon, Kíla and Carbon/Silicon's Mick Jones and Tony James.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Aug 2008



Jinx Lennon kicked off the chat yesterday chez Hot Press, with a bit of banter, spoken word microphone rants and a lovely song with the wonderful Ms Paula Flynn.

Mr Lennon was closely followed by Kíla's Hogan brothers, who talked to our own Adrienne Murphy about their Main Stage show that day, which featured a custom-made backdrop, Brazilian dancers and an amazing acrobat show – check out our pictures here.

And the closing act of the evening was punk legends Mick Jones (The Clash) and Tony James (Generation Ex, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Sisters of Mercy), who now perform as Carbon/Silicon. A packed tent greeted the pair, who were happy to chew the fat with Mr Stuart Clark, and stayed quite a while afterwards for fan photos, handshakes and an extra rock 'n' tale or two!

As we type, Josh Ritter and The Stunning have joined the tent and are adding to the chatmosphere (sorry), with Elbow on their way shortly, and many more to follow this evening.

More news when we get it, and plenty of photos too. Plus, check hotpress.com in the coming weeks for chatroom videos with all the questions, songs and stories from three days of nattering fun!
