Bureau Of Lost Culture – On the Road … with Johnny Marr (24/04/2022)
From Colin Wilson to Tony Wilson, Patti Smith to Mark E Smith, what was it like coming of age in the counterculture of Manchester in the 60s, 70s and 80s?
Johnny Marr’s just released his latest record and his band’s on tour with Blondie. He’s worked with Billie Eilish on the Academy award winning theme for the Bond blockbuster No Time to Die and with all sorts of other artists including Hans Zimmer, Modest Mouse, The The and The Pretenders. He’s had chart hits with Electronic, and, oh yeah, he co-piloted one of the best loved and influential British bands of all time -The Smiths
We don’t really talk about that – but we do dig deep into archetypal psychology, northern peak experience, clothes, records, books, youth culture and reading the road signs along the way to your destiny.
