We had a chat with Wrangler, which is always free-wheeling when Mal, Benge and Phil are sat in front of our tape recorder. Warpaintwere in the UK over the summer for their first live show in a while, so we took the chance to find out what makes LA’s finest band tick, there’s also rather lovely pieces with Silver Apples and Sam Coomes, who you will know from Quasi.
Elsewhere, we pay a visit the sound archive at The British Libraryfor a guided behind the scenes tour of their vast collection and a chat about their new multi-million pound Save Our Sounds project. Do you know what a shelf that holds 10,000 vinyl LPs looks like? We do now.
We take a peek behind the scenes of a new film about Gary Numanand his family. ‘Android In LaLa Land’ is out later this month and it’s a bit of a treat.
