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

The longest day, extra width, 2021 Summer Solstice special - 75 minutes of quality, wholesome goodness, full of Vitamin D*, featuring brand spanking new shiny stuff and proper classics getting a new lease of life (* doesn’t contain Vitamin D).

Giancarlo Erra, a multi-disciplined artist (who you may know best as frontperson of Nosound) returns to instrumental composition under the auspices of a new solo LP ‘Departure Tapes’. Giancarlo chats with your host Billy Reeves at length about the conceptualising of abstract music and why he’s not in the mood for compromise.

Plus a GRAMMY™ NOMINATED epic, a 'Record Store Day' collectable rarity, the hippest new group in Britain today, a track from one of the first ever ‘Crowdfunded’ albums, AND some moody French Prog played live in concert.

Podcast 131 - Richard Barbieri speaks!

Mr Barbieri is probably best known for his tours of duty with two of Great Britain’s most important and enduring artbands: Japan and Porcupine Tree, he also makes his own solo records with a few choice chums. His newie is the follow-up to the expansive ‘Planets + Persona’, an introspective lucid mood piece entitled ‘Under A Spell’, which dovetails nicely with the new breed of Bandcamp bedroom heroes and the Streatham nu-jazz scene. Richard joins Billy Reeves via Kscopelink™ to talk post-Pandemic, Percy Jones and lucid dreams.
