Demo Tapes

Reverend and the Makers guitarist Ed Cosens talks going solo (Series 3, Episode 15)

Here at Demo Tapes, nothing fascinates us more than someone going solo from a band - particularly if it isn't the frontman. So we were delighted to get Ed Cosens on the show, on the week that the Reverend and the Makers guitarist released his brilliant debut solo album, 'Fortunes Favour'.

It's an entertaining trip down memory lane with one of Sheffield's most unsung musical heroes - Ed talks to us about how he needed to find the confidence to strike out on his own and the high points of his 16-year career as the musical driving force behind RATM.

He also reminisces about being in Alex Turner and Matt Helders' first pre-Arctic Monkeys band Judan Suki and also being the "yin to the yang" of best mate and RATM frontman Jon McClure.

Also answered on this episode: what do you get if you cross Liam Gallagher with Gail Platt from Coronation Street?
