In the latest instalment of the pod, Nick talks to Sheffield Beatles Project’s musical polymath, Howard, about the emotional heart of the album - Because.
They discover which famous classical composer influenced the music of Because; who’s philosophical musings inspired the lyrics; how Bo-Rap was inspired by Because; and what links The Goons, The Beatles and Monty Python.
Howard is an IT whizz, a stupendous musician, and all-round good guy. Check out his old band, and my first Sheffield musical love, Balor Knights (http://drownedinsound.com/releases/7072/reviews/614241-), and his more recent endeavour Early Cartographers
Nick is a freelance composer, producer, and tour manager working out of his studio in Brixton, London. Find out more about his endeavours over at http://www.nicholasalexander.org, and check out his brand new solo material, Minimal Animal, over at https://soundcloud.com/minimal_animal
