this month’s contributors include…

Al Kooper A musician and songwriter, Al recalls his contributions to Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited on p66. Meanwhile, at age 77, he fights a never-ending battle to keep himself out of the Real Gone section of MOJO while preparing Unreleased - a 70-plus-track box set - for release on the Omnivore label. Niall Doherty Digging into the labyrinthine making of Radiohead’s Kid A (see p56) took Niall back to standing in the rain at the band’s huge homecoming show in 2001, mouthing the holy words… “They’re playing Creep!” A writer and former Deputy Editor of Q, he previously interviewed Radiohead in Paris in 2016. Alan Berry Rhys Alan is a graphics artist and illustrator from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Both in his personal work and work for brands, his love of typography and letters, as…

a radiohead companion

TWO MONTHS AFTER KID A, THE FOURTH RADIOHEAD album, was released, Jonny Greenwood talked to an American magazine about the band’s radical reinvention. “The album as a whole is a distillation of our favourite records,” he said, with self-deprecating candour. “It’s basically a band copying styles of music they can’t really play.” Twenty years ago, Kid A sounded like a band on the run from stadium-sized expectations, from the oppression of rock orthodoxy. Now, it feels more the work of five men who were imbibing the best and most adventurous old music and surging towards something authentically new. As this month’s anniversary feature on the record makes clear, Radiohead listened intently to electronica, jazz, 20th century classical composition, avant-rock and much more, then collaged elements of them all into a forward-thinking…

I used to do a summer job at Billingsgate fish market, as a fish porter in 1977, I was saving up for a bass amp. We finished at about midday, and I, in my smelly fish clothes, would go and cruise the record shops, where I got Rattus Norvegicus. I was staying with a friend in Sevenoaks who had a record player I could turn up loud, and this touched a nerve. It was male music, very aggressive, scary almost. There was a dirty sleaziness to it. As a 16-, 17-year-old, who had been listening to music from, I suppose, the more feminine side, it really spoke to me. I brought it back to Dublin and played it to the band. We did a passable version of London Lady - somewhat…

no mere clothes horses, the nude party bring class to the rock garage

“The main gas in the engine has been touring.”PATTON MAGEE AVOWED ROCK’N’ROLL believers are anything but two-a-penny among today’s twentysomething generation. On that score alone, The Nude Party are outstanding – even before you hear the ultra-connective tunes that fill their two rowdy LPs. Formed in 2013 at local college in Boone, North Carolina, they got their name after performing in a state of déshabillé at frat parties, but the frisky sextet soon outgrew this initial, none-more-garage purpose. “I really dig prolific songwriters like Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and Neil Young,” says singer-guitarist Patton Magee, whose Southern-tinged howl fabulously echoes each of his three idols. “But then our drummer Connor Mikita gets more into the sounds and tones of bands, while Shaun [Couture, guitar] is really into country riffs.” These influences were tangibly…

meet liraz, leader of a secret band of iranian women

“WHEN I released the first song, my father said: ‘People know where you live, they will come for you.’”Liraz Charhi is recalling the making of her newly released second album, Zan (Farsi for “woman”), on which the Persian-Israeli singer recorded with Iranian musicians for whom the consequences of such collaboration could be extremely grave. Women aren’t allowed to sing in the Islamic republic, so “sessions” took place online. “By Instagram and Telegram,” she explains. “I was sending my lyrics and at the start people really wanted to join the project. But there was heartbreak: a drummer gave me tracks but she didn’t want to be on the album. Some wanted to use other names, others asked me not to contact them. That was painful.” It’s a sunny afternoon in Tel Aviv when…
