STOURBRIDGE'S finest were on the road before Christmas and the Base Sessions went along for the ride.

The Wonder Stuff and Pop Will Eat Itself, with help from fellow 90s indie heroes Jesus Jones, sleighed the UK during a December tour which took in Birmingham's O2 Academy.

A team from the Base Sessions caught up with the Stuffies main man Miles Hunt for a chat about midlands music, touring and new albums.

After a week of storming shows nobody on the Sleigh The UK 2012 bill looks set to slow down any time soon. The Wonder Stuff recently completed a new album - Oh No It's The Wonder Stuff, while all three bands have already signed up for a repeat of the pre-Christmas tour in 2013.

During the exclusive interview Miles talks in his usual forthright style about the rebirth of PWEI and complaints The Wonder Stuff has changed personnel too much.

With Oh No - It's The Wonder Stuff set for general release in March, Miles also lifts the lid on how he built feedback from fans into the songwriting process for the new release.

The Base Sessions is recorded and produced by Base Studios in Stourbridge.
