Sounds Of A City - Liverpool

SOUNDS OF A CITY - LIVERPOOL (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 29th March 2019

Ahead of the 6 Music Festival, another chance to hear DJ Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy turn her attention across the Peaks to one of the UK's most important musical cities; Liverpool. Focusing on the Teardrop Explodes Kilimanjaro album, we talk to Julian Cope about how he made the album, why he moved to Liverpool, and why he always travelled to the studio on an invisible horse. Colleen also looks at how Liverpool and Psych are inextricably linked, the importance of Soul Music to the area, how the nightclub Eric's and record shop Probe inspired a scene, and Liverpool's isolation from the rest of the country has helped create an outlook like no other.

Colleen speaks with Shack's Michael Head who grew up surrounded by the influence of the Teardrop Explodes: Holly Johnson, of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, discusses the role of Liverpool's flamboyant gay scene played in the burgeoning post-punk scene: DJ Greg Wilson casts his critical ear over an 80s Liverpool still living under the eclipse of The Beatles: author Mark Cooper shares his thoughts on the rivalry between Echo & the Bunnymen and the Teardrops. Colleen also meets Stealing Sheep's Emily Lansley, who is at the vanguard of a younger generation of musicians who embrace Liverpool's psychedelic sound. And if all of that wasn't enough, Zoo Records and KLF founder Bill Drummond shares two of his one minute presentations about the album.

First broadcast in 2015.

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 28th March 2019

Janice Long walks through key places in Liverpool with Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Holly Johnson, as he remembers the characters and music that shaped his life and career to date.

Holly will take us on his own magical mystery tour from the local church where he sang as a choirboy, through the streets where he delivered papers, over the Mystery Park to Penny Lane while we hear The Beatles, David Bowie, The Human League, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and T-Rex amongst others.

Holly and Janice also pass through the 'posh bit' of Liverpool where he first walked along an avenue humming the song that would become Relax. Holly also visits the Everyman Theatre (where he auditioned as a young man), the Cavern and Erics (where he performed with Big In Japan alongside his contemporaries like Echo & The Bunnymen and Ian Brodie).

Holly has fascinating anecdotes and memories to share about the Fab Four, Joe Meek, the Liverpool Empire, record shops and boutiques, Bob Wooler, Allan Williams, The Silver Blades Ice Rink & Disco, Matthew Street, Pete Burns and Jayne Casey as they affected his life.

Beatleland

BEATLELAND (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 24th March 2019

Every day, tourists beat a path to Lennon and McCartney's childhood homes, restored to their 1950s glory by the National Trust. From Albert Dock to Mathew Street, Beatle memorials are ever present: Penny Lane and Strawberry Field, clubs like The Jacaranda, The Casbah and The Cavern where the group learned its trade, The Grapes and Ye Cracke, where the young Beatles would enjoy a pint of cider and Gambier Terrace where John Lennon shared a flat with fellow art student Stu Sutcliffe. The Beatles connection is worth millions of pounds a year to the local economy.

In a programme filled with atmospheric location recordings, music and archive, Craig Charles visits Menlove Avenue, where Lennon's Aunt Mimi ruled the roost and the young John practised his guitar in the porch, and Forthlin Road where John and Paul composed so many of their most famous songs in the McCartney's front room. He'll sit in 'the shelter in the middle of the roundabout' at Penny Lane and head for the Cavern with fans like Geoff Davies who saw the Beatles perform there more than seventy times. We'll hear the Kop singing She Loves You in 1963, listen to acetates of the earliest recordings made by the Quarrymen in a local DIY recording studio, discover how Eleanor Rigby really did exist and find out about Tommy Handley and Albert Stubbins, the Scouse legends Lennon picked to grace the cover of Sgt.Pepper.

What was in the Mersey air that enabled John, Paul, George and Ringo to conquer the world? How did the city shape The Beatles and how does their enduring success continue to impact upon their home town?

In The Beginning - The Beatles In Hamburg

IN THE BEGINNING - THE BEATLES IN HAMBURG (320kbs-m4a/131mb/57mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 20th March 2019

In the run-up to the 6 Music Festival in Liverpool, another chance to hear a programme, first broadcast in 2009, in which Holly Johnson visits Hamburg to explore how marathon sessions in smokey cellars, and friendships with local teenagers, helped create the incredible chemistry that turned a Liverpudlian beat group into the all-conquering Beatles.

The invasion of British bands into the red light district of Hamburg began in 1960 when German promoters realised that British rock 'n' rollers were cheaper to hire than American ones. The Beatles were a five piece group when they arrived in the Reeperbahn in the back of manager Allan Williams' van in August 1960. John, Paul and George were accompanied by Stuart Sutcliffe on bass and Pete Best on drums.

From August to October 1960, the Beatles were the house band at the Indra Club where they played four hour sessions every night and slept in a tiny room above a local cinema. From October to the end of the year, they were promoted to the nearby Kaiserkeller.

It was an unlikely collision of young people from different cultures that would create a world-beating chemistry. Where The Beatles had the sound, the Exis had the style. Exis always wore black, with white collars or ruffs and their hair was "pilzen kopf" - "mushroom head" in style. "The Beatle haircut was in fact a Jurgen haircut" says Paul McCartney.

The impact of Hamburg on The Beatles and the friendships they made there would endure. And as far as John Lennon was concerned, the band were never better than when in the thick of an all night session on the Reeperbahn.

Little Richard: A Whop Bop A Lua, A Whop Bam Boom

LITTLE RICHARD: A WHOP BOP A LUA, A WHOP BAM BOOM (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 18th March 2019

6 Music's Wise Woman Peaches selects this profile of Little Richard, first broadcast in 2012 to celebrate the 80th birthday of the larger-than-life rock 'n' roll originator.

Richard is one of the most outrageous performers in the history rock music and has been a major influence on generations of musicians, from The Beatles onwards.
Little Richard has always claimed to be "the architect of rock and roll", and history would seem to bear out his boast.

As Bob Dylan said: "It doesn't get much better than A Whop Bop A Lua - A Whop Bam Boom. That's the pure essence of rock 'n' roll right there in that one line".

The man who grew up in a very religious family as just plain Richard Penniman began performing on stage in 1945, incorporating the high energy antics of preachers he witnessed in his local Pentecostal churches in to his stage routine.

When rock 'n' roll exploded in the 50s Little Richard led the way with his over-the-top gospel-style singing, with moans and screams, accompanied by a combination of boogie-woogie and rhythm & blues. His frantically charged piano playing and raspy, shouted vocals on such classics as Tutti Frutti, Long Tall Sally and Good Golly, Miss Molly defined the dynamic sound of rock 'n' roll.

This new music, which included an original injection of funk into the rock 'n' roll beat, inspired many of the greatest recording artists that followed. Paul McCartney said that he idolized Little Richard when he was in school and always wanted to sing like him, while Mick Jagger called him "the originator" and "my first idol."
Bob Dylan performed Little Richard songs on piano as a schoolboy in his first band and declared in his high school yearbook in 1959 that his ambition was "to join Little Richard".

You Shake My Nerves - The Jerry Lee Lewis Story

YOU SHAKE MY NERVES - THE JERRY LEE LEWIS STORY (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 17th March 2019

Another chance to hear a programme first broadcast in 2005 which looks back on the eventful life of Jerry Lee Lewis.

As well as Jerry Lee himself, contributors include sister Linda Gail Lewis, ex-wife Myra Gail Lewis, biographer Charles White, Cowboy Jack Clement (the man who discovered him), Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Hank Marvin, Joe Brown, film director Taylor Hackford, record producer Marshall Chess and others.

Jools Holland says of Jerry Lee " I think the thing about Jerry Lee is that, whenever he plays it doesn't sound like anyone else but Jerry Lee, no matter what song he does, it might be country song or a rock and roll song, but it's Jerry Lee, it's unmistakably him.

Tom Jones adds "The first time I heard Jerry Lee Lewis was in 1957. I was walking through Pontypridd, where I come from in South Wales, with some of my friends and we were talking about rock and roll and all of a sudden Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On comes out of the loudspeaker outside of the record shop and my friend said "Is that what you're talking about?" and I said "That's exactly what I'm talking about!"".

Race With The Devil - The Gene Vincent Story

RACE WITH THE DEVIL - THE GENE VINCENT STORY (320kbs-m4a/128mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 16th March 2019

Another chance to hear Roger Daltrey, frontman of The Who, assessing the influence of leather-clad rocker and personal hero, Gene Vincent.

Born in 1935, Vincent Craddock was brought up in a naval community in Virginia and left school early to become a sailor. His naval career came to an end when he was hit by a car, nearly losing a leg, and he threw himself into making music.

With a new name and a manager - local radio DJ "Sheriff Tex" Davis - Vincent began writing songs and almost immediately came up with the classic he'll always be associated with, 'Be-Bop-A-Lula'.

Follow-up hits of such magnitude were not easy to come by. 'Race With The Devil', 'Bluejean Pop', 'Lotta Lovin' and 'Woman Love' did not achieve the same commercial success.

Vincent went on tour, performed on television, and starred in a film 'The Girl Can't Help It 'with Jayne Mansfield. He was one of the first rock 'n' roll stars to make a career in movies and appeared in three more, but by 1960 his star was on the wane in America.

Tours in Europe gave him a shot in the arm but trouble seemed to find Vincent wherever he went. A car smash near Chippenham killed tour mate Eddie Cochran while Gene broke his ribs, collarbone, and further damaged his weakened leg.

In 1963 he moved to England and it was here that he made his mark on the burgeoning British pop scene. His stage shows and 'dangerous' image, assisted by his trademark leather outfit, greatly influenced artists like Lennon and McCartney, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Ray Davies, Shane Fenton and Eric Burdon.

Gene Vincent died in 1971 at the age of 36.

First broadcast on Radio 2 in 2009.

Eddie Cochran: Somethin' Else

EDDIE COCHRAN: SOMETHIN' ELSE (320kbs-m4a/127mb/55mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 15th March 2019

Another chance to hear Joe Brown present a tribute to Eddie Cochran. Eddie is much loved in the UK, where he met his tragically early death in Wiltshire, aged only 21. Although it's startling how much he had achieved in his short life, his glittering future was snatched away on the night of 17 April 1960.

The list of his admirers is a long one, which spans the decades and includes Rod Stewart, Marc Bolan, the Who, the Beach Boys and the Sex Pistols - all of whom have recorded his songs over the years. Eddie's career was brief but his influence and popularity have been long lasting. His reputation as a founding father of rock 'n' roll music was confirmed when he was chosen as one of the first stars to be inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

The programme features comments from admirers Robert Plant and George Harrison (an archive interview with Joe Brown), guitarist and Cochran biographer Darrel Higham, rock historian Rob Finnis, British rock 'n' rollers Vince Eager and Marty Wilde, and Eddie's recording engineer at Goldstar Studios, Stan Ross.

Plus there are archive interviews with Eddie Cochran from programmes in the USA, Australia and in the UK (BBC Radio's Saturday Club and the TV programme Boy Meets Girls) Plus those rock 'n' roll classics: Somethin' Else, Summertime Blues, C'Mon Everybody. Twenty Flight Rock, and Three Steps To Heaven.

6 Music's History Of Video Game Music - 2. Episode 2

6 MUSIC'S HISTORY OF VIDEO GAME MUSIC - 2. EPISODE 2 (320kbs-m4a/129mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 10th March 2019

Could you write music for a film if no-one had shown you the script? That’s the problem games composers face every day. They’re scoring scenes where the player has free will, and the music only works if it reflects their choices. So how do you do it?

Mark Savage takes a deep dive into game music, with composers The Flight (Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Horizon: Zero Dawn) and Winifred Phillips (God Of War, Little Big Planet) stripping down their soundtracks to reveal how they work.

Radio 3’s Tom Service drops in to explain how game music is full of psychological cues; while Ludomusicologist Tim Summers explains the importance of “death music”.

Wrapping up the series, art-rock band 65DaysOfStatic demonstrate how they created an “infinite soundtrack” for the sci-fi game No Man’s Sky, which changes every time it’s played.

6 MUSIC'S HISTORY OF VIDEO GAME MUSIC - 1. EPISODE 1 (320kbs-m4a/133mb/58mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 10th March 2019

Video game music has come a long way since the bleeps and bloops of Pong. Games like Assassin’s Creed and Red Dead Redemption 2 now come with dense, cinematic scores that stretch over 50 or 60 hours of playing time.

Mark Savage speaks to some of the industry's leading composers, including Yoko Shimomura (Street Fighter II), Grant Kirkhope (Goldeneye) and Bafta-winner Jessica Curry (Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture) and finds out how games companies threw a lifeline to Europe’s orchestras when they started commissioning new works.

He’ll also find out how Michael Jackson and David Bowie ended up as video game characters; and why bands like Depeche Mode and Katy Perry have re-recorded their hits in gibberish for the hit game The Sims.

Recorded in Japan, the US and UK, the programme also features observations from gaming expert Charlie Brooker, who chooses his favourite video game music in a separate 6 Music show on 3 March.

6 Music's History Of Video Game Music - Charlie Brooker's Video Game Playlist

6 MUSIC'S HISTORY OF VIDEO GAME MUSIC - CHARLIE BROOKER'S VIDEO GAME PLAYLIST (320kbs-m4a/137mb/60mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 10th March 2019

Charlie Brooker discusses his passion for video games, and selects some of his favourite game music.

Years before he created Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker was a video games journalist – reflecting a love of gaming that stretches back to his childhood.

It’s a passion that’s cropped up throughout his career – from programmes like Gameswipe to his appearance on Desert Island Discs, where he selected a track from the Gameboy title Robocop as one of his discs.

The most recent episode of Black Mirror – Bandersnatch – even revolves around the creation of a choose-your-own-adventure game, and included bespoke music written on a vintage ZX Spectrum.

As part of the 6 Music's History of Video Game Music series, Charlie sat down with Mark Savage to discuss how he discovered games at a local swimming pool, why he finds Super Mario Bros addictive, and how he’s using Zelda to teach his children to read. Along the way, he chooses his favourite tracks from video game history.

Bowie And Beyond: A Music Fan's Guide To Berlin - 2. Episode 2

BOWIE AND BEYOND: A MUSIC FAN'S GUIDE TO BERLIN - 2. EPISODE 2 (320kbs-m4a/64mb/28mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 20th February 2019

Writer and broadcaster Danny Robins looks at what has made the German capital a rock n roll Mecca, exploring the cultural and social forces that have shaped the city's rich musical history from Weimar times, via the Bowie years, to the techno revolution of the 90s and the vibrant present day music scene.

Danny follows in Bowie and Iggy's footsteps, on a guided tour with former recording engineer Thilo Schmied, who takes him around some of the pair's old haunts and shows him round the legendary Hansa studios where they recorded. In the shadow of the wall and within shooting range of the East German border guards. Bowie and Iggy inspired a creative influx of bands and singers in subsequent decades. Danny meets producer Gareth Jones, who worked with Depeche Mode and Nick Cave at Hansa, and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller, still a resident of Berlin.

Danny meets more recent musical immigrants too, like Eddie Argos from indie band Art Brut, now resident in hipster suburb Neukölln, and the queen of sextronic rock n roll, Peaches, who takes Danny on a tour along the remains of the Berlin Wall and gives him her suggested Berlin playlist. Danny also meets German artists, including Die Toten Hosen, indie band Tocotronic and German Hip Hop star Prinz Pi.

Danny builds up a picture not only of the influences that have shaped the city's unique soundscape but also the reasons it has been and continues to be such a rich and fertile place for musicians to base themselves. Every band needs a Berlin period - but is there such a thing as a Sound of Berlin?

First broadcast in 2013, and repeated as part of 6 Music celebrates Berlin.

Gideon Coe - The Songs Of Scott Walker: Late Night BBC Prom

GIDEON COE - THE SONGS OF SCOTT WALKER: LATE NIGHT BBC PROM (320kns-m4a/404mb/2hrs56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 25th July 2017

This Late Night Prom tribute will celebrate the works of 1960s pop icon turned 21st century avant garde, Scott Walker, performed for the first time with live orchestral backing.

Among the special guests are musician and 6 Music presenter Jarvis Cocker, singer-songwriter John Grant, vocalist Susanne Sundfør and guitarist/vocalist Richard Hawley.

They will join the Heritage Orchestra on stage under pioneering conductor Jules Buckley in a celebration of Walker's music from 1967 to 1970. The show will include works such as Copenhagen and It's Raining Today.

An icon of the 1960s, Scott Walker has travelled from Walker Brothers teen idol to avant-garde contemporary musician, influencing artists from David Bowie and Leonard Cohen to Goldfrapp along the way.

Richard Hawley says: "Singing a song of Scott's in the shower is major joy.... well for me anyway... but to be asked to sing a few on a stage like the Royal Albert Hall is a thing of wonder, I hope I do Scott's genius credit."

Susanne Sundfør says: "As a life-long fan of Scott Walker, I'm very honoured to be performing some of his music at the BBC Proms in July. I'm incredibly excited to share his enduring talent alongside John Grant, Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley, and to be able to take part in such an iconic event in British culture.".

There are also anecdotes about Scott's time prior to the success of The Walker Brothers when he was a bass player in a Californian surf band called The Routers and an insight into his friendship with the late David Bowie who was a big champion of Scott's solo work having covered Nite Flights on his own Black Tie, White Noise album.
