    Episode 32 JG Thirlwell

    If there is a common thread to composer/producer/performer JG Thirlwell's varied musical styles, it is a dramatic intensity and an evocative, cinematic quality. Born in Melbourne, JG moved to London in 1978, then relocated to New York City in 1983, where he has been based ever since. As well as his own name, he works under many pseudonyms including Manorexia, Foetus, Xordox, Steroid Maximus, Baby Zizanie, Hydroze Plus, Clint Ruin and Wiseblood.

The Lydian Spin Has Quickly Become One of My Favorite Podcasts.

There are many interview format podcasts out there. Most I lose enthusiasm for because it becomes clear that the booking of guests is driven by a boring notion celebrity. How many times do I need to hear from Matthew McConaughey or Josh Brolin? Lydia’s guest are interesting and unique. It is great to learn about an artist who I did not know about before listening to the podcast. I think both Lydia and cohost Tim Dahl ask interesting questions, but sometimes wish they would let the guests talk a bit more. This is a critique I have for most interview podcasts. Thank Lydia and Tim keep up the good work!!!!!!!

Unbelievably Awesome

Highly Recommended! The perfect podcast for people who simultaneously love and loathe modern art! Lydia weeds you through the crap and targets your attention towards genuinely interesting and sick, things!
