Interesting Drug Episode 2

About the show

Playing tracks by

Gil Scott Heron, Unknown Lithuanian Band, Gavin Bryars, Vala Thorods & Jack Underwood, Pierre Henry and more.

Its “Festival Season” as Adrian Slatcher’s poem begins the 2nd episode of “Interesting Drug” Manchester’s new arts and music podcast. With Manchester International Festival coming to an end we review one of the festival highlights HOME’s “Returning to Reims” as well as mentions for the Manchester Street Poem and the closing event Ceremony. But its not all about MIF. The musique concrete pioneer Pierre Henry died recently, and we pay tribute, whilst three Icelandic experimental/innovative poets come to the Other Room this week, and Manchester-based artist Rachel Goodyear has a major solo show on at the New Art Gallery Walsall. Should books have soundtracks? Well David Gaffney references plenty of music in “All the Place I’ve Ever Lived” his new novel set in West Cumbria, and we also give a nod to the “Small World” exhibition at PS Mirabel which opened as part of Manifest. Music from Underworld, Pierre Henry, Teardrop Explodes and a barely recognisable "Blue Monday" from Kazakhstan.
