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, over the next six weeks. 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 each Wednesday at 1pm on Resonance (104.4 FM or online at www.resonancefm.com) and we’ll also be bringing you transcripts of highlights from the shows each week on the CR blog.
First up on Subway Sect is musician Kevin Shields, who has been a member of My Bloody Valentine and collaborated with Primal Scream and has also produced a number of solo projects including the soundtrack for Lost in Translation and acting as ‘noise consultant’ on Douglas Gordon and Phillippe Parreno’s movie Zidane (A 21st Century Portrait). Shields is in conversation with record producer Brendan Lynch, who has worked with Paul Weller, Primal Scream and The Rakes amongst many others. The show was recorded at Primal Scream’s recording studio in north London early this year.
