About this deal
But Sheffield singer Hawley admits he took quite some persuading to let Adrian Dunbar sing his songs in the new series. In our interview, he also explains that, like Ridley, his heart also belongs to a local music venue… the under-threat Leadmill in Sheffield.

The nitty gritty of how the Leadmill is in this situation is morally repugnant to me. That somebody can buy the land underneath you, throw you out of the business you have built up for 40-plus years, and not only that, but actually thieve your business from you? That is wrong with a capital WRONG. If they get away with this, what is next? They are predatory. Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms.

vinyl (MUTE 362): "Born Under a Bad Sign" (single version) / "I'm Just Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail"Im so into that song. Reminds me of xmas, i dunno why... when u realize nobody's there waiting, no special person to hug u when ure sad. Its amazing how Richard voice's is enough to make the song. I’ve been playing there since I was 15 or 16. Phil Mills, who owns the Leadmill, told me I was the musician who had played there the most by a considerable margin. Thinking about all the times I’ve been there and it’s mental. The breadth of things that I’ve done in that one place. Before we start talking about venues, we have to talk about music as a concept. It isn’t as vital as food and shelter and oxygen and water. But it is the only thing outside that list to me, and I think to a lot of people, that is vital. To hear a piece of beautiful music that moves you is such a vital part of the human experience. To hear it in a beautiful venue, a great place like the Leadmill, is just amazing. I’ve been fortunate to have that experience as a punter and playing on stage. So to have these places stripped away from us because of the current situation with those bastards in power is maddening. Because they will be gone. History tells us that any government, no matter how bad, will fall eventually. Which gives me some hope.
