Facing the Other Way - The Story of 4AD
Between 1980 and 1999 the enigmatic and introspective Ivo Watts-Russell signed a roster of stylistic trailblazers to English indie record label 4AD, including Bauhaus, Birthday Party, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, The Pixies, and many more. 4AD was co-founded and funded by Beggars Banquet founder Martin Mills, who recognised Russell's singular A&R vision.

Trevor Reekie speaks to English author Martin Aston, who has published a defining history of the label called Facing the Other Way - The Story of 4AD.
