Mark Christopher Lee, Warren Haynes & Barry Cain

Interviews from 18 July include Mark Christopher Lee of The Pocket Gods, Warren Haynes of The Allman Brothers and Gov’T Mule, along with author Barry Cain.

The Pocket Gods are a cult indie band.  Their ground-breaking 100×30 album, featuring 100 songs all of which are only 30 seconds long, has been called by The Independent as the ultimate musical statement against Spotify and will “change the way songs are written” due to the way Spotify pays out a royalty once a track hits 30 seconds (0.007p) and then no more, leading the band to question why bother writing longer songs anymore?

Warren Haynes is an American musician, singer and songwriter. Warren is best known for his work as longtime guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band and as founding member of the jam band Gov’t Mule. Early in his career he was a guitarist for David Allan Coe and The Dickey Betts Band. Warren also is known for his associations with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, including touring with Phil Lesh and Friends and The Dead. In addition, Warren founded and manages Evil Teen Records.

Barry Cain is the author of 57 Varities of Talk Soup – Pop’s Last Stand 1978 – 1989.  This romp through the music scene of the early 1980s includes interviews with The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Jam, The Damned, Marc Bolan, Bruce Springsteen, Malcolm McLaren, The Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop, Paul & Linda McCartney, The Who, X-Ray Spex, Blondie, Bob Marley, The Stranglers, Dr Feelgood, Queen, Ian Dury, AC/DC, Spandau Ballet and others.
