The Velvet Coalmine Festival is a cultural festival which takes place in Blackwood, South Wales, each September. It features fifty live bands, DJs, film screenings, workshops and much more. Highlights for the 2015 festival which takes place between 1st and 6th September, include gigs with Dub War, Slaves, Commander Boom, Houdini Dax, The Johnstown Flood, the Noses and a massive coup in the shape of US legends The Meat Puppets playing their first ever Welsh gig. There will also be film screenings with Don Letts and Viv Albertine will be doing a Q+A.

We met up with Iain Richards, the driving force behind the event for a chat in the run up to the 2015 festival. We picked early evening on a quiet night in a quiet pub? What could possibly go wrong? Well a birthday party for a start. Anyway --- here is an audio recording of the chat warts and all.
