Blank Generation 4 – JJ’s in the house!

Click here to listen:

I’m only a month into the concept of Blank Generation, the radio show / podcast series, and I have not only had the pleasure of the company of Duncan Reid in the studio for almost three hours, but now I have had the privilege of interviewing Jean Jacques Burnel. Both of them are full on heroes of mine and neither of them has disappointed. In this week’s show JJ tells me about the Stranglers’ forthcoming, final full UK tour. He opens up about the demands of being constantly on the road and how he has loads of ideas for new material. I got the impression he enjoyed talking frankly to someone who actually knew their product and I am grateful for the time he took to speak openly and passionately about the band, its member’s past and present and their future plans.

With no studio guests this week, the playlist was all mine, so I decided to play records that I personally felt like listening to. I stuck strictly to the 1976 through to 1980 criteria and I found myself grinning throughout. This music is timeless and although incredibly misunderstood and vastly under appreciated, it somehow feels owned. Not just by me, but by anyone who wants to share in its ownership. I’m conscious of not preaching or stating the obvious but find myself talking inbetween tracks as a sense of duty. I may get the odd year wrong and may be slightly out in terms of misinformation, but it was a long time ago and everything I say, I try and articulate from the heart and to the best of my memory. I’t is important to the band’s featured, some more than others, that they are documented and never forgotten.
