Max Reinhardt - Stewart Lee's Mixtape
Adventures in music, ancient to future: Max Reinhardt presents a guest mixtape from comedian and musical curator Stewart Lee. Plus tracks by Bonnie Prince Billy and Adnan Joubran.
Max Reinhardt is joined by comedian, columnist and musophile Stewart Lee with the debut edition of the Late Junction Mixtape.
A tribute to the age-old tradition of making a mixtape for a friend, guests are invited to explore the full diversity of their record collections, to dig out those obscure gems and much-loved rarities which they seldom get to share. The aim is to reveal a lesser known side to their musical identity and above all to take the listeners on a journey through a variety of moods, feelings and eras, exploring and celebrating the disjunctions within a record collection. Stewart Lee talks about his lifelong love of the avant garde in music ahead of his ATP festival this weekend.
We also play a track from Bonnie Prince Billy's new album with the Bitchin' Bajas, early Celtic music sung by the Choir of Gonville and Caius College Cambridge and a piece by Palestinian Oud player Adnan Joubran.
