The Quietus Hour 47: A Special With James Endeacott
John Doran , August 17th, 2017 07:24

"He started slapping me around the face with a long, black dildo but there was nothing weird or malicious about it."

Our guest this week is none other than Mr James Endeacott who claims his CV contains one thing and one thing only - that he is very good at running round being James Endeacott. More impartial observers might say that actually, on top of this no doubt very valuable skill, he was also an original member of Loop, worked at Rough Trade, set up 1965 records, A&R'd the Strokes and The Libertines (settle down at the back there) and, last but not least, is an all-round good person and friend of this website. As always on The Quietus Hour Special, the guest chooses all of the music and this time the sonic treats come from Japan, Soft Cell, David Bowie, The Outcasts, Leonard Cohen, Don Cherry, The Mode, The Flatworms and Zor Beyler. The chat comes quick and fast regarding Bowie-related near death experiences in Northern pubs and why anyone with any sense should really hate the music business (but also, at the end of the day, not hate it as well). WARNING: may contain traces of middle aged men getting emotional about Marc Almond.

Thanks as always to producer Mighty Seb White and Todd The Dog.
