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!

Kscope Podcast 69 features an interview with and music from Bruce Soord of The Pineapple Thief.
After 10 albums as TPT Bruce has made a beautiful “threadbare epic” solo album and it’s out now. The songs were recorded in and influenced by growing up in a classic, small, isolated English town, and how both writer and the town have changed in recent times.
Plus the first new music in 17 years from Richard Barbieri & Steve Jansen(once of Japan), Anathema live in Liverpool Cathedral (a lead vocal from the wonderful Lee Douglas) and a track from the forthcoming The Anchoress album where Catherine Ann Davies is joined on vocals by Paul Draper from Mansun.

Hello! Welcome to the Kscope Podcast.

Gavin Harrison, Porcupine Tree’s drummer, has taken time out from working with King Crimson to record a contemporary jazz album, based on his love of brass arranging; using as its source material his favourite Porcupine Tree songs, melodies and leitmotifs.

The result is astonishing; a kind of heavy rock Lalo Schifrin, and Gavin explains the influences behind the project in an exclusive interview here.

Plus you'll hear some of the pieces on ‘Cheating the Polygraph’.

Continuing the Steven Wilson theme you’ll hear a track from the new North Atlantic Oscillation ‘Glare’ EP, a Wilson remix of ‘Wires’ (released to  coincide with the band’s mini-tour, and talking of concerts… two tracks from Kscope concert –movie albums from Katatonia & Nosound.

Enjoy!! Billy Reeves (Twitter: @TheBillyReeves @KscopeMusic)

Hand. Cannot. Erase.’ Is the much-anticipated 4th solo album from one of rock music’s most interesting characters, Steven Wilson.

You’ll hear four tracks from the LP and an in-depth interview with the man himself, on his style, why it would be “melodramatic” to split up his much-loved band Porcupine Tree, and how this is his most “conceptual” album to date.

This is a man who sells out the Royal Albert Hall; this is an album that the UK national newspaper the Guardian gave 5 stars. This record demands your attention. It's out now.

Also, we’ll hear from Anders Nystrom of Swedish rock giants Katatonia, recorded at the London Union Chapel aftershow, a gorgeous concert which is now coming out as a concert film on Blu-Ray, Vinyl and CD/DVD-d.
