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.
AND some Steven Wilson news…

Epic one hour Autumn Special starring...

 

Gazpacho. Thomas talks about new album Molok and the album’s attempt to map the position of all the electrons in the universe – to find true meaning or futility (I kid you not)…

 

Anathema. Vincent talks about the unique challenges of the Cathedral shows, the huge Distant Satellites tour, the new concert film and plans for the future..

 

Plus dramatic music from new signing The Anchoress and a gorgeous tune from the forthcoming debut solo album by Bruce Soord of The Pineapple Thief.

 

An hour of the finest music, thesis and antithesis…
