The following week, Simpson spoke to Wendy James, co-founder of 80’s synth-pop band Transvision Vamp, and now a respected solo artist in her own right. The conversation was followed by an exclusive stream of Wendy’s latest album, Queen High Straight. Next came an in conversation with synth-pop band, Team Picture.
