Cut Grass: new show up on Totally Radio
A Factory Records theme seems to have emerged on this month’s show, although there’s also music from friends and collaborators such as Fink, Bibio, Seamus Fogarty and (the linking figure, as both a collaborator and a Factory associate) John Metcalfe. Also featuring recollections of our Polish gig alongside the Kronos Quartet, and thoughts on the new Grasscut album. Plus music we simply like, including the track that nearly sent Andrew driving off the side of a Welsh mountain, by French singer-songwriter Yves Simon, and a piece by The National’s sister band, Clogs. Spoken word cameos, meanwhile, come from Wallace Stevens, Siegfried Sassoon and two Eastenders featured on a recent Bishopstage Institute oral history.
