This week we hear from Carl Green, who makes up a third of  the Teeside band Head of Light Entertainment along with Simone Silivistris and John Taylor.  They describe themselves as "The New Avengers of left-field pop". Their debut album I Am Liberated attracted the attention of BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson, who featured several tracks on his show.

How long have you been making music?
Not long. We got together in August 2011.

What inspired your latest album?
Fairies, internet stalkers, ageing lotharios, fog...you know, the usual kind of thing.



What process do you go through to create your music?
We shut the door, shut our eyes and imagine something wonderful...



How would you describe your sound?
Surreal pop with lightly smoked tunes?



What would your dream collaboration be?
Oh that's an easy one. We'd love to work with Sparks. Ron Mael is a genius.



Where can we catch you performing next?
We are supporting The South (ex-The Beautiful South) on Thursday 8 March at Durham Live Lounge.
