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.

Podcast 104 – Kscope's Favourite Tracks

 

Before we get in to our favourite music on the label, we listen to White Moth Black Butterfly, who have a new video and single taken from the ‘Atone’ LP, (the video was Directed by Mr Richard Oakes).

 

THEN:

Ten years of the Kscope label means ten years of the Kscope podcast; there are many folks without whom it would not be possible and they’ve all become really good friends over the years, so I’ve let them loose on the microphone and the record player, choosing their favourite music from the label.

 

Finally, the best of Blackfield (entitled ‘Open Mind’) has been released, curated by Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen and we listen to the title track.

 

OF COURSE the podcast wouldn’t exist without you dear listener, so THANKS HEAPS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

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.

AND a reminder of how to get your ticket for our 10th anniversary party - ALSO listen out for details of an Anathema album slated for later this year…
