Here’s a fun one coming up – I’m looking forward to meeting Daniel Rachel, I bought his book Walls Come Tumbling Down (https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/sep/28/walls-come-tumbling-down-daniel-rachel-review) at the Louder Than Words music literary festival last year – a great piece of work. Frankly, with the rise of so much insular nationalism and casual dismissal of equal rights for all, its felt like the time to hear about a previous era in which some decided it was time to stand up for something.

The conversation – over booze! Phew! Always the best way to let conversation flow – is focused on ‘collaboration’ in music and life in general. It’s pretty central to the entire ability to create oral history, that it involves a community being willing to participate; a shared experience to speak of; something that people made together – the alternative is merely autobiography and biography.
