|Lemmy, Copenhagen 1987 photographed by Paul Slattery|
In Episode 21 of Retrosonic Podcast, Steve & Adam are joined by Rock Photographer Paul Slattery to spin and chat about a mix of oldies, new releases and exclusive tracks. Paul explains how Lemmy influenced his choice of career in music photography and he picks his favourite Motörhead track. One of Paul's photos graces the cover of the brand new single from Billy Childish & CTMF so we give that a play and talk about Paul's work with Billy over the years. Staying in the Medway there's the debut single from Graham Day's new outfit The Senior Service and we're still recovering from our sold-out launch party with the band at the Half Moon Putney. Of course we can't avoid the untimely death of David Bowie and we pick a Mod classic from his time with The Lower Third. Along the way we chat about some upcoming gigs by some influential and legendary British R'n'B bands The Pretty Things and The Downliners Sect plus there's the long-awaited return of The Long Ryders. There's a cracking new track from The Rezillos and a classic from That Petrol Emotion. We go all International with The Stompin' Riff Raffs and The Mayflowers from Japan, there's some raw R'n'B from the Loire Valley and Sharpers and an exclusive unreleased track from Brazil's brilliant Autoramas! Oh, and there's a brand new slice of Psycho Rock 'n' Roll from Dick Venom & The Terrortones!
