Spellbound: The John McGeoch Story

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 22nd November 2016

Another chance to hear the story of John McGeoch, one of the most innovative and influential guitarists of the new wave era.

Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester and London, John McGeoch was described as the "post-punk Jimmy Page", a man with an experimental, uncompromising and unique style.

He was a distinctive player who could conjure up dramatic riffs and sounds. He performed with no fewer than nine bands, including Magazine, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Public Image Ltd.

Pete Mitchell talks to Howard Devoto, Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Marr among others, as he shines a light on the short life of this unsung guitar hero.
