George Harrison's Wonderwall

Freakmaster General Maconie presents 120 minutes of not normal songs that range from desolate and challenging to shiny and beautiful. This week he looks at George Harrison's 'Wonderwall'.

Two hours of musical brainstew courtesy of Great Uncle Stuart. Each week, Freakmaster General Maconie presents 120 minutes of not-normal songs that range from desolate and challenging to shiny and beautiful. Expect lush soundscapes, banging beats, angular guitars and tender instrumentals all within minutes of each other, presided over with fathomless knowledge by your gracious host. Not exactly what you'd call mainstream, but it cuts deep and oozes non-pretentious musical profundity.

Following the release of Martin Scorsese's current George Harrison biopic, 'Living In The Material World', Stuart looks at the quiet Beatle's debut solo album, released in 1968 before the band split. It's a strange and often overlooked concept album, mainly consisting of instrumentals, made for the Joe Massot film 'Wonderwall'.
