Kscope The monthly Kscope Podcast is presented by Billy Reeves. A new edition of the podcast will be available each month.

NEW OZRIC TENTACLES SINGLE! AND NEW THE PINEAPPLE THIEF SINGLE!

Ahead of forthcoming LPs on Kscope, we hear brand spanking new tracks from the pens of Ed Wynne and Bruce Soord. Plus, a brief chat with Gavin Harrison (from King Crimson/Porcupine Tree) on how he trained Bruce's voice and Bruce Soord himself on the gestation of the first track to be teased from the new The Pineapple Thief LP.

PLUS  a look back on other Junes at Kscope, a fertile month, with tracks from Lunatic Soul, Anathema and Paul Draper of Mansun and an oldie but goldie from ten years ago...
