Kscope post-progressive sounds

Welcome to the Kscope Podcast, episode 98, in which we share an interview with Gazpacho's Thomas Anderson backstage as the band prepared for their performance at London's The Dome in support of new album Soyuz.

Thomas explains what the tour means to the band, the meanings and concepts behind Soyuz, and gives a clue as to how the band’s unique sound is created. Plus, he and podcast presenter Billy Reeves swoon over the gorgeous singing of Mr Jan-Henrik Ohme, just out of his earshot..

As Kscope gears up to ten years as an official label and 100 Podcasts, we give a clue as to how you can join in the celebrations, and play a spin of an historic release…

Kscope Podcast Ninety One – Lunatic Soul and The Pineapple Thief Special

Featuring alluring interviews with Mariusz Duda, Bruce Soord and Darran Charles.

Lunatic Soul is the solo project of Mariusz Duda, the creative force behind one of Europe’s biggest rock bands: Riverside. Fractured is the fifth Lunatic Soul album; a personal catharsis following the death of his father and of band member Piotr Grudzinski, working through moving on and offering guidance to others in the same situation. Mariusz states that it's the first LS album that can be listened to "in the day as well as the night".

The Pineapple Thief have released their new concert film Where We Stood, recorded at their sold-out London show on the Your Wilderness tour and boasting performances from Gavin Harrison (King Crimson / Porcupine Tree) on drums and Darran Charles (Godsticks) on guitar. The Welsh hardened industrial rockers recently signed to Kscope for their new album Faced With Rage – and our presenter caught both Darran and Bruce Soord whilst on tour together for a chat about both albums.

Plus a track from one of Britain’s most significant songwriters Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema from his transcendental new solo album Monochrome.

In this episode - some big announcements with some big names.

TANGERINE DREAM, the group that invented kosmiche, have a new LP coming out on Kscope. Edgar Froese has, sadly, joined the cosmic jokers in the sky, but he left instructions behind for his bandmates: we hear from Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss on the creation of the new album and the political & societal conditions that helped formed the music of TD and their contemporaries.

DANIEL TOMPKINS, the singer of one of the UK’s biggest Progressive metal bands (Kscope’s TesseracT) invites presenter Billy Reeves to Mansfield in the coal-mining heartland of Nottinghamshire to talk about the disciplines of a professional singer and his new album as WHITE MOTH BLACK BUTTERFLY.

ANATHEMA are in the middle of a world tour but took time out to pick up their PROGRESSIVE MUSIC AWARDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR in London recently. To celebrate, there’s a new video for "Can’t Let Go" – and a video for guitarist/songwriter DANIEL CAVANAGH’s new solo track "The Exorcist" from his forthcoming LP Monochrome, we’ll hear snippets from both plus a snippet of LUNATIC SOUL’s new album, the talented creation by MARIUSZ DUDA , the bassist of one of Europe’s most influential groups RIVERSIDE.

Hello and welcome to the first Kscope Podcast of 2016.

 

PLENTY going on at the label this year!

 

We start with an introduction to Catherine Anne Davies PhD, Simple Minds’ keyboardist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, PKA as The Anchoress for her debut album out now on Kscope,‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ – which is “sneaking big ideas past the listeners of daytime radio” (Q Magazine).

 

Some of the LP was co-produced and written with Mansun’s creative force Paul Draper (Catherine is currently helping Paul with his first solo album) so we’ll hear how the two met - as well as Catherine’s forthright opinions on gender in rock.

 

PLUS a track from the current album from Steven Wilson AND an update on the current Kscope artists on tour.

 

IT’S ALL HAPPENING!
