Podcast 108 – Mansun 'Six' interview with Paul Draper

The “stupidest album ever released by a pop group” according to chart-topping singer-songwriter Paul Draper, is his own sophomore effort ‘Six’ from his band Mansun. Hear Paul’s memories  of a sprawling literate-prog meisterwerk  paid for by The Beatles’ label; The Doctor from Doctor Who, the world’s leading glass orchestra, and Eric Clapton’s beans on toast. Does he like it, 21 years on? “It’s too early to say”, apparently…

You'll hear music from 'Six', (4-disc book-set OUT NOW) plus forthcoming BRAND NEW releases spun herein from Gong, Daniel Tompkins (from TesseracT) and a track from the new album from Porcupine Tree’s Colin Edwin – i.e. O.R.k.
