PLUS, there’s a brand new concert album coming out shortly from Bruce’s band The Pineapple Thief so we get an exclusive spin of a track from that, Catherine Anne Davies (professionally known as The Anchoress) tells us about her new Podcast series, and there’s news of some more iamthemorning dates and a track from their latest album The Bell.

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.

Oh, and Tom baker too.

Listen as we hear from Bruce Soord at Waterloo station on his way to Paris to begin the promotion of The Pineapple Thief’s new LP ‘Dissolution’, which is OUT NOW! It is an album which looks at all sides of the communication revolution, a close-up of distance, a record which is the equal of many classics of English melancholy. Bruce and Billy discuss the dichotomy of social media, the art of band discipline, and cheese.

 

PLUS we hear a brand new White Moth Black Butterfly remix, a teaser from Gazpacho, and forthcoming music from Nosound.

AND a reminder of how to get your ticket for our 10th anniversary party - ALSO listen out for details of an Anathema album slated for later this year…

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!
