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…

Kscope Podcast Ninety – Tangerine Dream and White Moth Black Butterfly Special

In this episode - some big announcements with some big names.

TANGERINE DREAM, the group that invented kosmiche, have a new LP coming out on Kscope. Edgar Froese has, sadly, joined the cosmic jokers in the sky, but he left instructions behind for his bandmates: we hear from Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss on the creation of the new album and the political & societal conditions that helped formed the music of TD and their contemporaries.

DANIEL TOMPKINS, the singer of one of the UK’s biggest Progressive metal bands (Kscope’s TesseracT) invites presenter Billy Reeves to Mansfield in the coal-mining heartland of Nottinghamshire to talk about the disciplines of a professional singer and his new album as WHITE MOTH BLACK BUTTERFLY.

ANATHEMA are in the middle of a world tour but took time out to pick up their PROGRESSIVE MUSIC AWARDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR in London recently. To celebrate, there’s a new video for "Can’t Let Go" – and a video for guitarist/songwriter DANIEL CAVANAGH’s new solo track "The Exorcist" from his forthcoming LP Monochrome, we’ll hear snippets from both plus a snippet of LUNATIC SOUL’s new album, the talented creation by MARIUSZ DUDA , the bassist of one of Europe’s most influential groups RIVERSIDE.
