3:04 pm How Soon Is Now

Trevor Reekie talks to UK author Richard King about his book How Soon Is Now - The Madmen and Mavericks Who Made Independent Music 1975–2005, which tells the story of the emergence of the UK independent music scene from the perspective of the labels and their owners.

Record labels like Factory, Rough Trade, Mute, 4AD, Beggars Banquet, Creation and XL provided a soundtrack to an era of music that epitomized the heroism and hedonism of a bunch of ‘mavericks’ who had “the time, space and means to improvise”.
