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

In which your host Billy Reeves is joined by Kavus Torabi from Gong – an in-depth chat about how he was invited by Daevid Allen to take over the orbit of Planet Gong, what it’s like to join one of your favourite bands and, having already had a bit of previous joining a favourite band (Cardiacs) who he’d join next, in the past, given a time machine. PLUS an attempt on coming up with a name to describe the great new crop of southern England based whimsical noisy prog-psyche groups and how they are sympatico with the Canterbury scene.

AND..

Some Iamthemorning news, a spin of the new single from Daniel Tompkins of TesseracT, and tracks from new releases on vinyl from North Atlantic Oscillation and an alumni of both Porcupine Tree and Japan, the one and only Richard Barbieri.

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!
