AUDIO: Scritti Politti's Green Gartside (2006)

Adam Sweeting, Rock's Backpages Audio, May 2006

The Scritti Politti man talks about returning to live work with his band of part-timers; looks back at the early Rough Trade days, and the politics and theory; at his discovery of soul and funk, and going to America to make polished pop records; at struggling with promotion and flipping out; at the process of making records, mainly his new album White Bread Black Beer; at romance, nostalgia and (lack of) memory, working with Miles Davis, and his memories of Bernie Rhodes and Malcolm McLaren.
