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.
