Lou Reed and Mick Rock

Duration:
3 hours
First broadcast:
Thursday 05 September 2013

Lou Reed and photographer Mick Rock join Nemone to talk about creating a limited edition book and record set, using photographs to chart the transformation of Lou Reed from 1972-1980. It chronicles a time of serious change, both personal and musical during a busy and creative period for the New York cool set, which consisted of Lou, Davie Bowie and Iggy Pop.

James Mathé aka Barbarossa is live in session playing tracks from his new album Bloodlines. James is influenced by everything from soul men Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo and Levon Helm to Dirty Projectors and Sufjan Stevens but points to one inspiration in particular for the overall mood of the new album - Vincent Gallo's cult '90s film Buffalo 66, a twisted romance about a tap dancer who falls for her convict kidnapper - "the end scene which features Yes's Heart of the Sunrise and the scene with Cristina Ricci dancing to King Crimson's Moonshine at a bowling hall especially," he notes.

Plus this week's Peoples Playlist offers up half an hour of brilliant tunes chosen by you on a given theme, free music in MPFree and take some time out to enjoy a gorgeous tune in The Headphone Moment.
