An affable end-of-the-week evening exchange of ideas, advice, evocations and/or opinions.
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 about his history-defining book: Facing the Other Way - The Story of 4AD.
