Welcome to Division's Communication Break Down #10.

It’s quite fitting that we have 3 bands playing on the John Peel Stage this weekend at Glastonbury. He influenced us from the very beginning, introducing us to the likes of Sonic Youth, Napalm Death, Dinosaur Jr, Public Enemy and many more abstract musicians that warmed our ears to boiling point.

I only met the master of all radio shows once, and by total accident. Drenched to the bone from torrential rainfall, I decided to undo some tent ropes and sneak my way underneath for some much needed respite. When I popped up on the other side,
totally covered in mud, I found myself embarrassingly stood next to Mr Peel in a BBC tent, who congratulated me on my break-in mission by shaking my muddy hand. He then pulled over a chair, got me a pint of beer and we watched a World Cup game together. Legend.
More wonderful things have happened since that day as you will see below. If you have projects coming up for Autumn, feel free to give us a shout.
