About this event

Alan Rankine (born 17 May 1958) is a Such a great interview coming up for you on Monday 16th May, 12pm, with Alan Rankine - the musical brains behind The Associates. What can you write or say about the Associates that hasn't already been covered or documented? We'll leave it to Björk... "The Associates went there. They didn't edit their nature out of it. They had pagan qualities. I read a book about Billy MacKenzie, and it said that all the lyrics were composed in the moment, not written down, like a stream of consciousness. For Medulla, I thought about using Billy MacKenzie's voice, and his father sent me old multi-tracks, the original tapes, and I wanted to work on it, celebrating voices, maybe do a duet with him. But when it came to it, I was too sacred."
