The Curator Podcast
Monthly+
 
The Curator is a podcast about passion and creativity. We chat to musicians and artists about their creative process, why they do what they do and the passion that drives them. We also talk about other stuff sometimes (most times) but hey, it’s all part of the conversation, right? New episodes every second Thursday.

I've chased this interview for years. The Menzingers are without a doubt one of my favourite bands. Having been a fan for so long, I feel as though I've grown up with them in a way, experiencing the weirdness of being in your 20s in an age where everything seems primed to keep us in a state of suspended adolescence. Their earnest and sincere so ...…
 
This is one of my favourite albums and I was so happy we had a chance to talk about it on this show. You can find out more about this and the podcast over at www.unsungpod.net
 
A rebroadcast of one of my favourite ever interviews with Casey from The Dear Hunter. This podcast is primarily about creativity, and over the course of the past twenty episodes I’ve spoken to some pretty productive people. Casey Crescenzo is probably amongst the most productive. Over the course of ten years The Dear Hunter’s oeuvre is as impre ...…
 
This is episode four of Unsung Podcast. Violator by Depeche Mode is one of my favourite albums, and I was so stoked that people voted it into our canon. You can listen to it here and find out more information about the podcast over at www.unsungpod.net
 
On this episode of Unsung we chat about Foo Fighters' self titled debut album and ask if it's really worthy of inclusion in our canon of classic albums. On this particular occasion, the public voted no (I'm releasing these a week behind our main feed), but you can still voice your opinion on if that's the right or wrong call over on our Faceboo ...…
 
I like looking in on previous guests with this podcast. It's good to check in and see how things have been. We’re back to the start with this one. Conor was my first guest on this podcast, and with the release of their long anticipated, and slightly delayed, debut album, it seemed only fitting to bring him back on to the show so we could talk a ...…
 
This is episode two of Unsung Podcast, a new podcast that I'm a co-host on. We're asking you to listen to Jane Doe by Converge and vote on if you think it should be added to a discography of all time great records. You can vote on this episode by going to https://www.unsungpod.net/episodes/2017/12/21/episode-2-jane-doe-by-converge…
 
Back in my car for this interview. This time it was on a freezing December night where the thermostat was definitely in the minus figures, so when we got inside I turned the engine on and the AC up to get some heat into the damn thing. You can probably hear that in the interview. I think it lends it a certain ambiance. You are, of course, welco ...…
 
In league with a couple of fine gentlemen named Chris Cusack and David Weaver, I've started a new podcast called Unsung. In it we'll be dissecting perceived classic albums and discussing whether or not they deserve to be inducted into a discography of all time great albums. Then we'll be turning it over to you, the general public, to vote on if ...…
 
I’ve been incredibly fortunate with this project. It started off as just an experiment to become familiar with how to podcast. Since then I’ve managed to tick a bunch of my favourite artists off my interview bucket list. This live episode is another one I can tick off the bucket list. We’ve all heard our favourite podcasts doing live episodes a ...…
 
The new Counterparts album reminds me of being a teenager. When I was 16 I graduated from nu-metal to metalcore. I read a review of Alive of Just Breathing by Killswitch Engage in Kerrang! Magazine and subsequently purchased the record from a record store in Glasgow’s Savoy Centre that specialised in metal music. That record store no longer exi ...…
 
Our previous interview can be found here. It’s been a long year for the flatties. It’s not common to see foreign bands arrive on these shores twice in the space of six months, but boy am I glad it was these guys. I openly said it in the podcast and I’ll happily say it again – this band is one of my all time favourites. They always bring it live ...…
 
What’s there left to say to Jordan Pundik? What is there left to say about New Found Glory? What is there left to even ask those guys? It’s hard to find the words to talk about seminal bands sometimes. 20 years is a long time to be making music, and it’s remarkable when you realise that Jordan is still in his 30s. They’re a band who has literal ...…
 
I was worried I’d maybe taken on a little too much lately. Turns out I had. I missed an episode and I apologise for that.The good news is that I’ve managed to bank a bunch of interviews and ALSO start two new podcasts. Silver linings etc.Turnover are a great band. If you’ve made it this far, you probably already know this. If you don’t know tha ...…
 
If there’s one thing to take away from this interview it’s that Outblinker have almost complete disregard for their personal safety. It’s not a bad thing. After this interview, I caught the band’s live set in Bloc, and the quasi-apocalyptic nature of their sound is given a whole new feeling when you hear the death defying tales of the band’s cr ...…
 
As B. Dolan and Sage Francis bring their latest Edinburgh Fringe Show Tricknology to an end, I felt it was time to revisit this interview with B. Dolan from back in October 2015. Enjoy.The Curator Podcast – Episode 19: B. DolanAs I get older I find myself growing to appreciate hip hop more and more. In my teens it didn’t grab me in the same way ...…
 
I knew that learning how to drive would make my life easier, but I didn’t think it’d also make podcasting easier. Yet here I am, fresh out of doing my second interview in my beaten up 2005 Ford Focus and I’m amazed at how good it sounds in there. Soft furnishings, man. I’m sure having doors that seal helps too.To wit - this is the second-time J ...…
 
Real talk: I'm ill. And because I'm ill, I've been a little slack in putting together some interviews. You'll probably be able to tell when you listen to the start of this episode.I've been listening to the new Employed to Serve album a lot lately. It's really very good. They're about to head out on tour with Milk Teeth and Wallflower and I tho ...…
 
Uncle Vic Galloway is responsible for my discovery of Fat Goth. He shared the video for their song ‘Creepy Lounge’ on his Twitter account way back in the heady days of 2013 and that was it, I was a fan. Since then, I’ve seen them every time they’ve passed through Glasgow and they never disappoint live.I’ve always found their sound to be a bit s ...…
 
Sometimes you feel like you have unfinished business after an interview ends. That’s kinda how I felt the last time I interviewed Billy, even though it was almost 50 minutes long. People and their situations change, and Billy has done a whole bunch of stuff since our last interview, including immigrating to Berlin, which I hear is a lovely plac ...…
 
I don’t listen to a lot of interview podcasts anymore. I’m a bit burnt out on them, despite how many awesome ones are out there. No, what I mostly listen to are science and storytelling podcasts. I love the high-quality production and sound design found in Love + Radio and the like.It’s those kinds of podcasts which influenced a lot of the prod ...…
 
Recently, I had a twitter exchange with a chap who asked me what I thought about streaming services. The crux of his argument was that if an artist owns the masters, they stand to make more in streaming revenue than those who do not, and that if this was the case, then an artist can make a lot of money through streaming services if you can get ...…
 
You never expect someone to remember you. I know I’ve said that a bunch of times now, but it’s true. I’ve met Chris on a few occasions, I even put on a few shows for The Flatliners over the years, but I still didn’t think he’d remember me.He did though, and because of that this interview actually comes across like two old friends sitting down f ...…
 
Half way through Chelsea’s set, apropos of nothing, my girlfriend exclaims “She’s quite moody, isn’t she?” Ironic, really because Chelsea and I talk about how her music is perceived as dark, and why that is the case.Of course, what she meant is that Chelsea Wolfe’s music is moody in the atmospheric sense. It’s an accurate observation, particula ...…
 
Picture the scene – you’re standing the middle of an old church. In front of you, built into the wall at the back of the room, are the remnants of ancient organ, its pipes dwarfing everything in the room as they rise almost to the ceiling. At either side of it are stained glass windows, depictions of divinity that loom over the rest of the room ...…
 
Ray’s podcast is wonderful. That’s the most important thing you need to know about this interview. The other thing you should know is that we recorded this over Skype and I think it’s the best a Skype interview has turned out for me. He’s a really down to earth, intelligent dude whose interviews are insightful and really engaging. I first came ...…
 
So many of these blog posts open with a description of how I first found out about my interviewee. It wasn’t until I sat down to write this one that I realised how being able to pinpoint such instances of discovery might be an odd thing. Do people tend to remember the exact moment when they first discovered art that moved them? One day in 2008, ...…
 
When I began this podcast I would often get frustrated at how unsuitable my recording environments would be. Sitting down in a dressing room or tour bus, the perfectionist in me would get annoyed at odd sounds, like a refrigerator buzzing or traffic passing. I’ve learned to accept it as something of a unique feature of this podcast. There are o ...…
 
I’ve been looking forward to sharing this interview since the day it was recorded. As it happens, my original plan for this was for it to be episode number two, but once I sat down to edit it I realised that of my side of the interview was garbled – it’d somehow been completely corrupt during the recording process. Now, normally I record my end ...…
 
Steven is in two bands, and I’ve interviewed members from both of them. Conor from Dialects was my very first interview on this wee Glasgow music podcast. That was back in June 2015.The other is Jamie from Atlas:Empire, whom I’d interviewed 11 months ago, so if it appears that it’s taken almost a year to follow that up then you’d be mostly corr ...…
 
As anyone familiar with the band knows by now, there is a lot to be said about Dillinger Escape Plan not just musically, but also in their ethos and approach to being a band. Torrents of column inches have been dedicated to their impending demise and the deluge will no doubt continue long after, but if you’ve heard their latest record or seen t ...…
 
Ah, nervousness. It either paralyses you or forces you into some kind of jittery, energetic action. It’s not unusual to be somewhat nervous before an interview – you never know what a person is like or if they can actually be bothered talking to you on that day – but jumping into it head first with lots of prep makes the experience way more tol ...…
 
I have Boston Manor's first EP downloaded on an external hard drive somewhere. That's not a brag or anything, by the way. In fact, I'd forgotten that I even had it until about a week before this interview. It brought back memories of another band called This Sudden Injury - I'm pretty sure it was their singer that recommended that EP on Faceboo ...…
 
When I interviewed Jim Adkins in September 2015, it was a pretty big milestone. I set out with a list of a bunch of people I really wanted to interview and I’ve made a pretty big dent on that list, and there’s more to come.Given how much I love Jimmy Eat World, I was more than keen to have a chat with Tom when the band came into Glasgow recentl ...…
 
Every episode is fraught with some kind of technical challenge. I can give you examples of this which happened on this very day.Today's interview was supposed to be with Andy Falkous from Future of the Left. I wrote a lengthy blog post discussing how I'd been averse to Skype interviews in the past and explaining that from now on I'd be doing mo ...…
 
The Curator Podcast: Season Two, Episode 1 - Joe Danher from FOESIt’s good to be back.If you’ve missed me then rest assured, I’ve missed you too dear listener.This is season two and as you may have noticed, things are a little different sonically. The format is still roughly the same (for now, that’ll evolve more gradually) but there’s a marked ...…
 
Hello, dear listeners. I'm glad you've made it this far. I never did manage to reach the fabled number 50. Actually, if you count the couple of wildcard episodes I only made it to 49.Bummer.ANYWAY, have no fear. The podcast is not dead. it's already been on hiatus for a month and I'm probably gonna extend that to September. Then I'll come out a ...…
 
So, this week The Curator Podcast is one year old. I'm not gonna say too much in this blog because I say a lot in the podcast. Here's the facts.The podcast is one year old!After episode 50 I'll be taking a break and moving to a season based format. And each episode will be fortnightly.Thank you to everyone that has helped out, donated their tim ...…
 
I am continually surprised that none of the people that I’ve met whose art has affected my life in significant ways are unpleasant. I always seem to expect some kind of aloof quality in the people I meet whose work has impacted me. It’s always wonderful to realise that they are just human like you or I. We put such people on a pedestal; they be ...…
 
Some people may remember the amount of “hype” there was around PUP’s first record away back in 2014. It took me a while to listen to it because for some reason I remember it taking ages to get released over here in the UK. I finally managed to hear it when I found the whole thing on YouTube.It took a while to land. I don’t think I was in the ri ...…
 
It’s difficult to release a podcast when you’re on the road. I tried, I tried so hard. I even wrote the following blog post:“Hello.A little late this week cause I'm on the road with False Hopes (do check us out).More notes to follow but things you should know about this podcast:Modern Baseball are greatThis interview is a ton of funBut I wish i ...…
 
There was a two week gap. It is a gap no more. I lost my voice, you see. You can hear it going a little bit in the interview. By the end of that night, my throat was finished, and for week afterwards I was a hoarse, croaky mess.But we’re back in action now.I have noticed that inconsistency has decimated my podcast listening figures. So if you c ...…
 
This interview was wrought with issues from the start. Ross and I had a really good chat and then the batter died on my trusty H6. Luckily I had a spare with me, but the recording was corrupted, so we had to start again.Which we did! And all was well! There’s quite a bit more ambient background chatter than I thought, but you can still hear us ...…
 
The struggle to write interesting, engaging questions for your guests is real. You need to do research, read between the lines of things they’ve said in the past, pay close attention to their music, lyrics, and the overall aesthetic of their art. You need to spend some time in worlds that they are creating.People may wonder why I only speak to ...…
 
These blogs are getting harder to write. Show notes are, podcasters are told, vital to a good podcast. People will often read the blog with the hope of getting a feel for the episode.Furthermore, the show notes often make up the description within iTunes (or whatever podcast player you use), so apparently it's good practice to have the show not ...…
 
A few weeks ago I was interviewed for the Hello-Fi Podcast and on this episode, I return the favour. This is technically part two of that exchange, because the Hello-Fi interview came first, but the way these are coming out means that it’s actually part one. Or part 1.5, if you will.Interviewing someone after they’ve interviewed you is a weird ...…
 
Going to keep this blog short and sweet this week, mostly because the podcast itself is quite long – like, it’s over an hour long and I haven’t thrown out one of those bad boys for a while.On this episode I sit down with Kyle from We Came from Wolves to talk about creativity. And we go deep. It’s probably the most extensive conversation about t ...…
 
Interviewing an entire band can be fun if the setting is right. In this interview with The Van Ts I was quite lucky because the band had a dressing room which wasn’t particularly noisy. Some dressing rooms though…it’s like trying to do an interview in a building site.I’ve been trying to book these guys for a while. There’s something about their ...…
 
I feel like the apologies are coming across as hollow. Maybe I should move the publishing day to Fridays. Although, there is then the issue of clashing with That’s Not Metal podcast but hey, it’s not like I’m even in the same league as them anyway, eh? Thoughts on this would be appreciated. Moving the day that is, not on the other podcast thing ...…
 
Can the lateness of an episode ever truly be forgiven? I know how annoyed I get when my favourite podcasts miss a week or have an erratic schedule. Does it erode your faith in me and my ability to get the job done? Do you even care about the reasons?Answers on a postcard please. Or an email. Or a tweet. Whatever. I’d like to know.This is late b ...…
