Atypical girl Viv Albertine was the guitarist in the original Punk-Dub trail-blazers The Slits who in recent times re-emerged from the ashes of her domestic pyre to flourish as a solo artist.
Today she joins us in the studio to discuss and read extracts from her new autobiography ‘Clothes…Music…Boys…‘ (published by Faber & Faber), a thoroughly compelling, must read tome that is brutally honest, humorous and harrowing.
Feature started life as a two-piece in 2012 with Liv Willars on guitar and Jen Calleja on drums, but recently gained a third member in Heather Perkins on bass. They released their first EP ‘Memory’ last year on Cazenove Tapes and their new EP ‘Culture of the Copy’ just came out on Tye Die Tapes. The lyrics for the songs on both EPs are inspired by social history and theory, and their sound has been described as ‘intelli-pop’. They all have more-than-full-time jobs and two of them also play in other bands. Jen in Sauna Youth and Heather in Slowcoaches.
Edinburgh-based folk-blues band King Eider are a talented five-piece who create a modern acoustic sound using traditionalmusicianship. From the loud to the soft, the haunting to the upbeat, the harmonic strength of this band lies in their unique mix of three-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, bass, drums and classical strings.
