Snedds is a freelance pop culture writer, podcaster and self-confessed nerd from Scotland. He's also the owner, founder and editor at "The Head Scratcher" and a host of "The Scratch Cast" podcast.
For the third Scratch Cast interview, Grant and Snedds have the pleasure of catching up with Jak and Welshy from the genre-bending punk band WACO. We ask about the band’s brilliant new album Hope Rituals and Jak and Welshy open up on their interstellar idiosyncrasies and a whole host of other topics including their charity singles, how positivity influences their music, what they miss about gigs and whether we’re alone in the universe. We had a proper laugh chatting to these guys and hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did!

For the second Scratch Cast interview, Grant and Snedds are joined by the inimitable Van Tastik (aka Chris Fallon) ahead of the release of his excellent new single "Hangman" (available now). VT talks about his particular style of music, his nomadic lifestyle, his influences both inside and outside of music and much more besides. It was an absolute pleasure talking to such an interesting artist. Thanks again to VT for talking to us for so long and we hope you enjoy the interview!
