David Byrne’s ‘American Utopia’
As David Byrne’s hit Broadway show ‘American Utopia’ arrives on screens in a new film by Spike Lee, Robert Bound chats with Tim Robey and Hilary Hughes about Byrne’s history of revolutionising live performance, Lee’s imprint on the show and its relevance in the current political climate.

‘Vic Reeves Art Book’
Comedian and artist Jim Moir, better known as Vic Reeves, joins Robert Bound to talk about his new book, a collection of his paintings that range from the dark to the absurd.
At the drive-in
We speak to the director and cast of a new drive-in production of ‘La Bohème’ at Alexandra Palace about the future of opera, staging a show during a pandemic and acting out a love story from a distance of two metres.
‘Nothin’ But a Good Time’
Justin Quirk tells Andrew Mueller about how a childhood love for glam metal inspired his new book, ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time’. It tells the story of this maligned music genre, from the extravagant hair, makeup and costumes to the political backdrop of 1980s America.
