The drivetime sessions with @ThePaperSnakes





This week on the Drivetime sessions we were reunited with the paper snakes who have previously featured on the show but have even more exciting news this time around.Th first original song performed by Chris and Paul was the beautifully sombre ‘On my own’ which was followed by ‘Hold on’ which provided an upbeat contrast to their opening track. Finally they ended the session with an immensely energetic cover of the song ‘Monkey Man.’

If you’d like to hear these unmissable tracks from the paper snakes as well as Chris, Paul and Danny reminiscing about their memories of retro recording methods and the upcoming events for the band then you can check out their facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/thepapersnakes/

The session will be available for a week after broadcast at www.radioverulam.com/listenagain by navigating to Wednesday at 5.30pm.
