It's been something of a glorious second wind for a-ha, with their excellent new album Foot Of The Mountain being showered with praise by critics and fans old and new alike.

Akira the Don sat down with Mags and Morten for an amiable chinwag about their return, the influence of Morrissey and Leonard Cohen on a-ha, that Family Guy episode, and the benefits of a good moisturiser.
