Iain Key’s Indie BrunchLouder Than War writer Iain Key has joined Louder Than War Radio. He’ll be serving up an Indie Brunch between 11am-1pm every Saturday

While unashamedly Manc-centric he’ll be playing a mix tracks from bands and artists who will be familiar to many, and a lot from those who aren’t. You’ll find fresh young talent rubbing shoulders with established and acclaimed acts from the off.

Iain says of the time slot and thinking behind the show, “I remember Terry Christian doing a show on Piccadilly in the late 80’s. It was a great time slot as you’d just be getting over a Friday night out and making arrangements for the Saturday, either heading to town or the match. He’d play a mix of stuff, but importantly always be supporting new talent”.

After managing the band Northside, working with a number of bands during the 1990’s and occasionally writing Iain dropped out of the ‘music scene’ until the pandemic hit, at which point he rediscovered his passion for writing and discovering new acts. He’s now been writing for Louder Than War for around 18 months now with over 100 pieces to his name.
