Interview with Loud and Quiet’s Stu Stubbs

Last week Loud and Quiet published a statement illustrating the struggles they were having to survive due to the Coronavirus crisis and the impact on advertising.

Loud and Quiet is a 15-year-old staple of the alternative, independent music scene in the UK, and to lose it would be an awful thing.
In this extra podcast, Gareth discusses the issues with founder and editor Stu Stubbs. They talk about troubles in publishing generally and what the future could look like.

Guest show: pq (Nihiloxica, Hakuna Kulala, Hot in da Club)

The second in our series of guest shows. This time we have the exceptional producer pq putting together an hour or so of music that takes us from Southeast Asia to Uganda, touching down in Japan, Greece, and Rotherham, whilst giving us a taste of some unreleased sounds of his own.

pq is one-sixth of Nihiloxica, whose debut LP lands on 12 June via Crammed Discs. He is also one-third of blitzkriegesque synth duellers Hot in da Club and accompanying label Spooky Shit. He was the noise behind the immense Ecko Bazz EP on Hakuna Kulala.

Guest show: Spooky-J (Nihiloxica, Spooky Shit, Hot in da Club)

Spooky-J is one-sixth of the mesmerisingly excellent Nihiloxica, whose first LP is coming out in June on Crammed Discs. He is also one-third of the extraordinary fast beats label Spooky Shit and the unrelenting synth dualling trio Hot in da Club.

For this special additional show to keep you occupied in these crazy times, he’s pulled together some outstanding sounds, ranging from raiding French cassette labels, to Italian library music and Greek synthpop, not forgetting to put in some unreleased Spooky-J sounds.

Enjoy this, it’s special.
