11:07 The Mixtape
This week, Jaz Coleman is best known as the frontman for the band Killing Joke, but he's been a classical composer and conductor for almost as long. He's also a part-time resident of New Zealand, co-founding York St Studios and producing albums for Shihad, Emma Paki and Hiniwehi Mohi during his time here.
His latest album Magna Invocatio features classical compositions of Killing Joke songs, performed by the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra.
Jaz speaks with Tony Stamp and plays some of the songs that have meant the most to him.
