Subway Sect: Andrew Innes and Jim Lambie in conversation

Jim Lambie and Andrew Innes
Subway Sect is a new radio series, produced by Maria Bartolo and CR’s Eliza Williams, which is airing on Resonance FM, London’s art/experimental radio station. The shows aim to explore the complex relationship between art and music and take the form of a series of conversations between artists, musicians, writers, designers, DJs and music video directors.
The shows go out on Resonance FM (104.4 FM or online at www.resonancefm.com) and we’ll also be bringing you transcripts of highlights from the shows on the CR blog.
On today’s Subway Sect, Primal Scream guitarist Andrew Innes was in conversation with artist Jim Lambie. Lambie and Innes are old friends, having both grown up in Glasgow, and they discuss the impact the city has had on them and the experience of working together on the cover for Primal Scream’s Dirty Hits, as well as their mutual love of junk shops and eBay. The interview was recorded in Primal Scream’s studio earlier this year.

The artwork sets the tone for the show, which contains Shrigley’s usual mix of humour and pathos.
