We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new podcast, The MOJO Record Club.
Hosted by MOJO’s Senior Associate Editor, Andrew Male, the series will reassess classic albums, share undiscovered gems, rave about brand new releases and more.
Available now, Episode 1 features Andrew in conversation with Alabaster DePlume – aka acclaimed Manchester composer, saxophonist, and poet Gus Fairburn – and MOJO Editor John Mulvey. Plus, there’s an exclusive interview with MOJO’s recent cover star Patti Smith.
Among the records we delve into we discover Yoko Kanno And The Seatbelts’ jazz-fired soundtrack to Anime series Cowboy Bebop, examine the latest release from Neil Young’s archive, the once long-lost Crazy Horse album Toast, and dig deep into Nick Cave’s new collection of spoken word prose poems, Psalms.
In an exclusive clip to launch the series, Andrew also speaks to Patti Smith about one of her most enduring influences, French poet Arthur Rimbaud – a discussion that develops into a moving conversation about remembrance, family and her mission statement as an artist.
With new episodes released every fortnight, The MOJO Record Club echoes MOJO’s word class approach to music criticism and appreciation. Listeners can expect warm, celebratory discussions where hosts and guests join the dots between the music of previous decades and the music that’s being made now.
Episode 1 is available to for free HERE or wherever you get your podcasts.
