Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-09-19 Experimental Explorations with Joanna Newsom

“Explore the outer reaches of sound with the Freak Zone, 6 Music’s experimental music show, In this episode there’s music from Blue Bendy, Nurse With Wound, Bolt Thrower and Beverly Glenn Copeland. The Freak Zone Featured Album is the beautiful ‘Have One On Me’, by Joanna Newsom. The 18 track, triple LP release celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary in 2020 and saw a slew of outlets re-appraising or at least re-configuring their opinions on the record. From the development of Newsom’s vocal style to the inclusion of instruments like the tambura, oboe and even a kora, there’s a lot to unpack across the album, but overall it’s a beautiful, big and ultimately rewarding record, and one we definitely recommend you listen to.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-09-12 Experimental Explorations with Ernest Hood

“We celebrate the dreamy, proto-ambient music of Ernest Hood who took up the zither after a devastating bout of Polio – and a year spent in an iron lung – prevented him from being able to play his guitar. Alongside playing the zither, Hood also began using a wire recorder to collect the sounds around him in his hometown of Portland. Initially assembling this field recordings for his radio show, Hood eventually wove them into his gorgeous 1975 album Neighbourhoods, which received a long awaited re-release a few years go.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-08-01 Sun Ra’s Lanquidity

“Stuart explores Sun Ra’s classic album ‘Lanquidity’, which was originally released in 1978 and recently enjoyed a 4LP re-release on Strut records. Lanquidity is a record that – as the title suggests – is languid and liquid, musically freeform and markedly different from previous Sun Ra releases. The album was recorded overnight at Bob Bank’s Blank Tapes on 17th July 1978 after the Arkestra had appeared on Saturday Night Live. It is a unique record in the Ra catalogue and at the time Sun Ra himself said “People are sleeping, and I’m here to wake them up from their slumber.””

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-07-18 Alice Coltrane’s Kirtan: Turiya Sings

“Our Featured Album is Kirtan: Turiya Sings, the intimate recording made by the godmother of spiritual jazz, Alice Coltrane. The record is a collection of nine devotional songs, featuring the rare combination of Alice’s voice and her Wurlitzer Organ. The original recording of these songs, Turiya Sings, was released exclusively on cassette in 1982 for the students of the ashram. In addition to Alice’s voice and organ, the recording included synthesizers, strings, and sound effects. In 2004, Alice’s son and producer of this record, Ravi Coltrane, found mixes he’d never heard before of just Alice’s voice and her Wurlitzer organ. He knew this is what the world had to hear and so the album finally gets it’s long awaited release via Impulse Records.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-07-04 French Frith Kaiser Thompson

“Our featured album is Invisible Means, the second release by trans Atlantic experimental quartet French Frith Kaiser Thompson. The record moves between folk, rock and avant-garde opera and does so with a delightful sense of humour, never taking the extraordinary accomplishments of it’s composers too seriously. Elsewhere in the show there are tracks by Essential Logic and Dr Strangely Strange, as well as new releases from Pink Drone, Fuzzy Lights and Dictaphone.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-05-23 Caroline Catz on Delia Derbyshire

“Stuart chats to the director, writer and actress of a new docudrama which explores pioneering electronic composer Delia Derbyshire’s life and work. Titled ‘Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and the Legendary Tapes’, the experimental and intimate film features inventive recreated scenes starring Catz herself as well as interviews with Derbyshire’s peers and collaborators, including Throbbing Gristle founding member and radical performance artist Cosey Fanni Tutti. Stuart hears about what it was like representing the cult figure and the challenges she faced in her career whilst working in the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
The featured album is American jazz guitarist Sonny Sharrock’s 1969 debut album Black Woman. Recorded alongside his wife Linda who provides Yoko Ono-influenced vocals, the album also features an all star cast of New York-based free jazz musicians of the time including pianist Dave Burrell, drummer Milford Graves, trumpeter Teddy Daniel, and bassist Norris Jones amongst others. Black Woman is a hypnotic and psychedelic mix of manic guitar crescendos, dramatic trumpet solos, touches of eccentric country blues and bursts of melodic madness.
Plus, rural landscape-inspired organ compositions from Yorkshire, infectious experimental electro pop from Belgium and chilling abstract wind compositions made from hand-crafted ceramics.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-04-25 Micachu & The Shapes

“Featuring the sounds of the band’s clattering avant-pop debut Jewellery from 2009. The trio is fronted by classically trained musical maverick Mica Levi flanked by their band made up of Raisa Khan and Marc Pell. Distorted electronica, scratchy guitars, over-processed chanting vocals, swoonsome wails and razor sharp melodies create an insanely catchy, playful and chaotic mess. Jewellery was the first of two albums made by Micachu & The Shapes which has since seen Levi collaborate with the likes of Oliver Coates, Arca and the London Sinfonietta amongst others. Levi has also received BAFTA and Academy Award nominations for their intoxicating original film scores to Under The Skin and Jackie.
Plus, piercing Taiwanese horror soundtracks, 1970’s prog rock and melancholic electronica inspired by telephone hold music.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-04-18 Beverly Glenn-Copeland

“In light of it’s recent 35th anniversary and long-awaited reissue, Stuart revisits the artist’s meditative ambient synth album from 1986 Keyboard Fantasies. Originally self-released on cassette into obscurity, Glenn-Copeland remained a non-entity to the music-curious public until the age of 72 when an influential rare-record collector from Japan sent him a life-altering email asking for any remaining physical copies of the album. Ever since, the artist has finally been enjoying global praise and commercial recognition with Keyboard Fantasies being referenced by contemporary electronic superstars like Four Tet and Caribou amongst others. Ethereal and soothing, the album uses smooth minimal vocals and synthesizers to bring together elements of folk, ambient and electronica to create a sound realised far before its time.
Plus, avant-rock, eerie and foreboding poetry paired with drone and folk inspired by abandoned railway stations found in England’s countryside.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-04-04 Hudson Mohawke

“Featuring the sounds of the maximalist electronic producer’s melodic 2009 debut album Butter. Hudson Mohawke a.k.a. Ross Birchard was quickly snatched up by Warp Records after making his legendary 2005 mixtape ‘Hudson’s Heeters’ as a teenager from his bedroom in Glasgow. Since then, and at spectacular speed, Hudson Mohawke has become one of world’s ‘super-producers’ and in turn has singularly changed the sound of rap by working with genre titans like Kanye West, Drake, Future and Pusha T to name just a few. Made when he was just 23, Butter is a blindingly bright and frenetic world of screaming guitar riffs, tripped-up drum patterns, euphoric pitch-shifted melodies and heavy bass.
Plus, meandering improvised guitar duets, organ-based experimental pop inspired by Northern Ireland’s social history and atmospheric dungeon synth that is raising funds for mental health charities. Also on the show, appearances from Freak Zone favourites Anna Meredith, Ivor Cutler and Sockethead.”

“Stuart has raided the archives and features his top highlights from the festival’s most experimental acts ahead of 2021’s virtual edition. Along with a brand new socially-distanced session recorded this year by Black Country New Road, Stuarts looks back on an exhilarating performance by Anna Meredith from the 6 Music Festival 2020 held in Camden. Plus, more sets and backstage interviews from the station’s very first festival held in Manchester in 2014 with the The Part Time Heliocentric Cosmo Drama After School Club’s joyous tribute to the Sun Ra Arkestra and the pioneering and legendary Radiophonic Workshop.
Elsewhere on the show, philosophical extreme metal from New York, intense Indonesian avant-rock composed with homemade instruments and brooding euro-dance inspired electronica from Norway.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-03-21 Labradford

“Stuart looks back on the Virginian post-rock band’s 1999 minimalist landmark album E Luxo So, comprising six instrumental tracks that make a poignant and restrained record. Instrumental contributions come from a string quartet, gorgeous bubbly electronic piano, dulcimer arrangements, subtle blips of percussion and plangent organ. An engrossing and hypnotic listen, E Luxo So was Labradford’s most overt move towards ambient music.
Elsewhere on the show, Peter Brötzmann’s explosive free jazz saxophone inspired by the mechanisms of war, radiophonic soundtracks to cult 1970’s children’s TV and heartwarming outsider pop from Freak Zone favourite Arthur Russell.”

Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone 2021-03-14 Slow Dance Records

“Stuart hears from GG Skips, co-founder of the London-based DIY arts and music label. Born in 2015 initially as a zine and party collective when many of its founders were just eighteen, Slow Dance’s output meets at the intersection of post-punk and experimental electronic production. They have put on shows in the legendary Windmill Brixton and Royal Academy of Arts as well as being early nurturers of some of Freak Zone’s favourite talent such as Black Midi, Jockstrap and Bunny Hoova.
The featured album this week is Mark Stewart & Maffia’s debut collaboration ‘Learning To Cope With Cowardice’ from 1983. After The Pop Group disbanded, frontman and visionary post-punk iconoclast Mark Stewart joined forces with dub producer Adrian Sherwood to create the groundbreaking record that’s a profoundly disorienting, claustrophobic and an intense critique on the cold war. Inspired by early hip hop and Stewart’s prolonged trip to New York the year before recording; bass lines support a mangled coagulation of screams, yelps and rants about lurking terror, political machination and urban dread.
Also on the show, sprightly jazz from 1980’s Japan, dreamy harp arrangements from L.A. and experimental electronics inspired by London’s landscape and concrete architecture.”
