As we are poised to release Episode 3 of Retrosonic Podcast, which I am pleased to announce will be a TV Smith special edition, don't forget you can catch up with all our previous Episodes on the Retrosonic Podcast Soundcloud site. Our current Podcast is Part 2 of our feature and interview with legendary Rock Photographer Paul Slattery, where he talks about the impact of Punk Rock, The Ramones at the Rainbow, on stage with the Pistols, The Adverts, avoiding Richard Jobson's flailing limbs, Penetration, The Runaways, Elvis Costello, U.K. Subs, Johnny Thunders, meeting Paul Slack, Charlie Harper and the U.K. Subs 30 years later and being led astray by Lemmy...

You can see a selection of Paul's superb photos of The Stone Roses now at Whiteleys in Bayswater, London. This is a joint exhibition "The Stone Roses, The Third Coming: The Definitive Exhibition", along with Ian Tilton and Kevin Cummins, and opens to the public today. We'll be featuring on the opening night in the next day or two. In a future Retrosonic Podcast episode, we'll talk to Paul about his time with The Stone Roses, including touring with the band in Japan and the now legendary Spike Island gig. One of Paul's photos has also been chosen to illustrate the posters, catalogue and flyers and the exhibition will also stock Paul's excellent books on those other famous Mancunians - The Smiths and Oasis.
