Performing live in session on Hello GoodBye today we have the lo-fi, living legend Jad Fair.
Jad Fair embarked upon a musical career when he formed the group Half Japanese with his brother David back in the late 1970’s. Jad has since gone on to carve out an incredibly impressive and mind-bogglingly productive career, with over 50 albums to his name (including a multitude of collaborative projects with the likes of Mo Tucker, Daniel Johnston, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub and many many more.) Jad’s childlike enthusiasm and creativity remain entirely undiminished and he is nowadays almost as well known for his striking and poetic ‘Paper Cuts’ artwork as he is for his music.
A collection 109 songs from Jads gargantuan back-catalogue are currently available on the triple CD ‘Beautiful Songs (The Best of Jad Fair)’ through Fire Records.
Tune in between noon and 1.30pm on 104.4 FM in Central London or on-line via: www.resonancefm.com
