''We don't want to jar people too much. We'll have a few fast ones, then we'll smooth it down a bit, then bring it back up. It'll be a good set.''
''I didn't play any music for about a year, until the end of 2009. I was sick of it really. I had what I suppose you could call a burn out, almost a mini break down. I don't want to get too dramatic but it was very stressful being in a band. It's always stressful being in a rock & roll band, especially that type of band, we didn't have any money and we were touring non-stop. I just couldn't face it, I couldn't pick up a guitar until it became impossible not to and that's when I got back into it.
''When I did start playing music again it was just for my own benefit, to finish all my songs.''
''I did it step by step. If I'd planned out what I was going to do it would have happened quicker but I thought 'let's play some songs', then 'let's record them', then 'let's release them'. That's why it took so long, plus I have a job and the people I'm working with have 9-5 jobs, so we had to work on the record in the evenings and at weekends.''
Jamie has a full time career as an illustrator and cartoonist. He is currently working on a series of children's history books for publisher Bloomsbury.
''I've finished two, I'm working on another two and there are five more in the pipeline,'' he says.
''I've been doing Doctor Who Magazine for ten years. The current issue contains my 100th strip for the magazine which is quite a milestone.''
And his verdict on the recent anniversary TV episode?
''I saw it in the cinema in 3D. I thought it was great - lots of good stuff in there, a cracking story.''
