Kscope Podcast 82 is one for fans of Japan, abstract beauty, Porcupine Tree and seven-inch singles.
Mick Karn’s latter years were very fertile, and Kscope continues its re-release of Japan’s late bassist’s 21st century masterpieces: we’ll hear 4 tracks from 4 albums, and memories from his bandmate and school chum Richard Barbieri. This gives Billy Reeves an excuse to play a track from the Barbieri/Jansen live concert album (featuring Steven Wilson on guitar) and a chance to chat with Mr Barbieri about his new record, Planets + Persona.
PLUS, from the new Porcupine Tree box set, a rare-as-hen’s-teeth cassette demo from way back and, as The Pineapple Thief are on tour (with Porcupine Tree’s drummer Gavin Harrison) we’ll finish with an exclusive play of TPT’s new 7” – a duet with The Anchoress…
