I’m currently sitting in Pink Lane Coffee in Newcastle. The only other people on here are two men of even more advanced years than myself. Earwigging their conversation, it’s clearly someone being interviewed. From what I’ve heard over the radio and the clatter of the coffee cups, it’s pretty evidently a progger or quite possibly a difficult improv jazz artist. I’ve heard the word “cerebral” being used, as well as phrases such as “pre-jazz/pre-prog”, and “reaching out to an audience”, as well as their lack of appeal to young people.
He’s just confessed he’s resistant to describing some of his favourite gigs over the last few years but I couldn’t quite catch why that was.
There’s a distinct lack of HORAs but that might just be down to the interviewer.
Who the hell is it?
