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.
