Music Spotlight – Lola Lennox 'In The Wild'.

Interview with singer songwriter Lola Lennox. Lola is releasing her debut single, ‘In The Wild’, in early February of this year, 2020. A phenomenally talented singer and songwriter working with innovative producers and co-writers, both in London and L.A., notably Jon Green. Lola is the daughter of Annie Lennox. However, I suspect that soon enough she’ll be recognised as an artistic force in her own right.

Charlotte Rampling, Hugh St and The Hippy Trail – ‘An Unusual Life’, by C. Weber

Around this time Charlotte Rampling was a stepmother of sorts. We lived together in a place called ‘The Studio’ in Hugh Street. She and my father travelled to the East to pick up a damaged London to Sydney Mercedes works rally car and drive it back to Europe along the hippy trail. Of course my father filled the car with hash and even though they had papers from Mercedes they only just made it back through the border crossings and past highly suspicious customs officers by the skin of their teeth.

Music Spotlight – Ledfoot, Tim Scott McConnell.

Tim plays Gothic Blues, his own form of raw and brutally honest music. He has a rare and immediate voice which he accompanies mostly only with a 12 string played with a sizzling slide. Tim Scott McConnell’s interview takes us from the deep south where, after he grew up in a trailer park, he played in local bands before leaving for New York and creating the house band at CBGB with a member of the New York Dolls. He was signed to Island and a number of other major record labels. Bruce Springsteen is a fan and popularised one of his songs, ‘High Hopes’. Tim lives in Norway and has a new record out called ‘White Crow’, under his artist name, Ledfoot.
