A Quietus Hour Special With Matt Johnson Of The The
John Doran , November 2nd, 2017 12:29

Matt Johnson discusses the new album he's just started working on and The The's return to playing live concerts

Today’s guest on this very special edition of The Quietus Hour is Matt Johnson of The The. John Doran, Mighty Seb White and Al Overdrive set up office for the afternoon round at his gaff and, over a very nice cup of white tea, we put the world to rights. While listening to tracks from the Radio Cineola: Trilogy box set Matt talks about his uneasy relationship with celebrity, working with Johnny Marr, the new The The album he’s just started writing and how he feels about taking his group back to the Royal Albert Hall. We were joined unexpectedly by the Los Angeles based poet John Tottenham and found time to ask Matt a lot of your questions.
