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

Thanks for being there. Billy Reeves talks with Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief) and Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson, The Pineapple Thief) about the definition of collaboration in music, its pitfalls and advantages. Along the way we discuss the fall of Anathema, Steven Wilson’s teeth-brushing proclivities and a magic guitar… …and we get to hear many of Kscope’s collaborative tunes, serving as a history of the label and its family of musicians, including iamthemorning with Gav and Mariusz, Bruce with Jonas of Katatonia, Engineers and North Atlantic Oscillation.
