About the show

Playing tracks by

Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Suicide, Craig Leon, The Phil Upchurch Combo, Blondie and more.

This was Craig's first visit to Wanted on Resonance Fm 104.4 fm London on May 13th 2014. As an Engineer-Producer-Composer he has worked with some the finest names in music. Early on he worked with Blondie and in particular on their 1976 single X Offender. He also was behind The Ramones début disc as well as Richard Hell's Blank Generation EP (issued in the UK by Stiff Records) as well as Power Pop legends The Records. He co-produced Suicide's eponymous début for Red Star Records and Bjork's 1st band The Sugarcubes. He has produced Arthur Brown, The Fall, Luciano Pavarotti, and Cassell Webb, too. Immersed in Electronica, he is - in many folk's estimation - one of the leading exponents of the genre. Recent live performances of his 1979 album Nommos have taken place to great acclaim.

Craig's memories of the NY music scene are probably the most concise and entertaining of any I've heard or read so far....
