In the mid-70s, Iggy Pop and David Bowie washed up together in Berlin, where one of their favourite haunts was Kreuzberg’s Cafe Exil. St Etienne’s Bob Stanley and his mate Jason Wood have compiled an imaginary Café Exil soundtrack featuring wigged-out German rock, experimental jazz, European folk ballads, oddball electronic pop. We’ll hear two tracks from that today, alongside classics from the late British folk-singer Nick Drake and New York bassist/singer Me'shell NdegéOcello.
