Daniel P Carter (BBC Radio 1) talking to artists about music, art, culture and the esoteric...

This episode is a conversation with the singer and artist known as Poppy and her collaborator Titanic Sinclair. Having met the pair of them a few times now and having spent some time with them 'off duty' as it were, I feel its fair to say that this is one of the first interviews Poppy has done where she steps away from the persona that is this whole project and had an open discussion about some deeper stuff. We discuss life, the music industry, art, creativity and more. We also get into some of the wild conspiracy theories swirling around the fringes of the internet regarding them both. It was definitely something I wanted to talk about as I find that they have read the current climate of a new 'satanic panic' like that which swept the entertainment industry in the 80's, which has now been 'upgraded' to a weird modern 'Luciferian Illuminati Reptilian Panic' and as artists they are reacting to that and are playing their hand well, in a very artful, creative and knowing way. Her forthcoming album 'I Disagree' is due for release on Sumerian Records in January 2020 and preorders are live now. The title track and its accompanying video are online now. Check out the Poppy youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thatPoppyTV Instagram is: https://www.instagram.com/impoppy/ Titanic Sinclair is here: https://www.instagram.com/titanicsinclair/ I post my shitty paintings, pictures of my cats and some BBC Radio 1 Rock Show stuff here: https://www.instagram.com/danielpcarter/ Speaking of shitty paintings, Tthe double portraits I painted of Poppy and Titanic are Oil, Acrylic and Ink on paper (approx 12" x 12") A five star review on iTunes, some nice words of appreciation and your recommendation to friends is always welcomed.

I recently spoke with Perry when he was here in London for a couple of shows to launch his new album 'Kind Heaven' We sat in his hotel the afternoon of the first of two shows the Kind Heaven Orchestra, featuring Perrys wife and co-vocalist Etty, played at The Box in Soho. It was unlike any gig I've been to, very intimate, interactive and inclusive. It was pretty wonderful to see. During our conversation we discussed the new project, the interactive and immersive experience in Las Vegas, Janes Addiction, Travel, Music, Creativity, Politics and an event that happened in Perry's life that had a profound effect on him... The album Kind Heaven is available to buy and is now on all streaming platforms. Perry can be found here: www.instagram.com/perryfarrelloffocoal and here www.twitter.com/perryfarrell You can learn about Kind Heaven here: https://kindheaven.com The podcast is here www.instagram.com/swimpodcast / www.twitter.com/swimpodcast / www.acast.com/someonewhoisntme Daniel is www.instagram.com/danielpcarter and www.twitter.com/danielpcarter The portrait of perry was something of a struggle for some reason, I was definitely over-thinking it but in any case its oil, acrylic, ink and pencil on paper.

We also talk a bit about Mike's love of BDSM and his line of womens clothing for men. All in all it was a very open and frank conversation.

In this episode I speak with Adam 'Nergal' Darski, front man and songwriter for Polish metal band Behemoth and alt country duo Me And That Man. We recorded this on the eve of the release of the latest Behemoth album 'I Loved You At Your Darkest' and we discussed the writing, shaping and recording of the album. Aside from the song writing I also got into a discussion about the incredible artwork by acclaimed Italian painter Nicola Samori that was used for the albums cover and subsequent singles and how the intended art by the fantastic Russian occult artist Dennis Forkas Kostromitin, who previously worked with the band on several releases, including albums The Satanist, Messe Noire and the Xiadz EP, ended up being shelved for later usage. Adam can be found here www.instagram.com/nergal69 and the band are here https://behemoth.pl/ and www.instagram.com/behemothofficial 'I Loved You At Your Darkest' is out now on Metal Blade Records.

In this episode I spoke with Randy from Lamb Of God, when his band were over supporting Slayer at the final headline show Slayer were doing in London before calling it quits.

Mike Shinoda discusses the making of his fantastic debut solo album 'Post Traumatic', the paintings that were to become the albums artwork and the creative process in general. We also touch upon passing of his friend and Linkin Park bandmate Chester Bennington and how making the album was a means of coming to terms with that. It seems appropriate putting this episode online today, as I just saw that today is World Suicide Prevention Day. This is a slightly shorter episode than normal due to a busy schedule. As I explain in the intro, there is some extra conversation added that I felt relevant from a conversation we had later that day with a slight change in audio quality. Please excuse the jumps between the two chats when they happen. Go check the album out on your streaming platform of choice or pick up a physical copy here: http://www.mikeshinoda.com Mike can be found online here: Twitter: www.twitter.com/mikeshinoda Instagram: www.instagram.com/m_shinoda and Daniel is here: www.twitter.com/danielcarter www.instagram.com/danielpcarter The cover painting was more challenging than normal (I realise that I probably say that with each one) but it came out pretty decent in the end. I wanted to include some of Mikes own graf style imagery and Boris the sock puppet that Mike used in the video he made for the track off of the album 'Ghosts'. Thanks.

James Lavelle of UNKLE discusses the new album 'The Road: Part 1' that come out Aug 18th. We also discuss his journey from creating Mo Wax Records when he was 18 up until this point. Taking in his meeting and collaborating with artists like Josh Homme, Ian Astbury, Chris Goss and Jeordie White etc. For an artists to come from a dance and hip hop background to end up producing Like Clockwork by Queens Of The Stone Age is an interesting transition from one genre to the another at a time when that really wasn't the norm. It would be fair that the paths created by artists such as James have made it the norm for todays musical and cultural landscape to be one that is happy to mix genres and cultures. The new UNKLE album is 'The Road: Pt. 1' is released August 18th on Songs For The Def.

Dan Searle, drummer with UK band Architects, talks about the loss of his twin brother Tom Searle, guitarist and songwriter for Architects. Its been a little over six months since Tom passed away due to cancer. On the eve of the bands North American tour Dan Searle contacted me about coming on Someone Who Isn't Me to discuss Tom's illness and its aftermath and how that informed their latest album 'All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us'. We spoke about how this has profoundly affected not only him and the rest of the band, but also the bands fanbase, what the future holds for the band, the beginnings of new music and moving forward. Its seems he's received a lot of requests to do interviews, but decided he'd like to come on the podcast and discuss these things in one place, so that there is a point of reference for anyone wanting to know the situation. As I say in the introduction, I'm aware people will transcribe this and share it in different ways, but please be respectful to everyone involved. The band have a...

Daniel P Carter speaks to record producer Ross Robinson, an innovator with a unique approach to making albums, who has recorded the likes of The Cure, Slipknot, Blood Brothers, Korn, Glassjaw, Norma Jean, Limp Bizkit, Klaxxons, Cancer Bats, Red Fang, Headwound City etc etc. His outlook / approach to making albums is a spiritual and esoteric one that has produced some groundbreaking albums that altered the course of heavy music as a whole. Sound quality on this one may be a little quiet because even though I EQ'ed out some of the background noise, I found that if I raised the levels too much the sound of the sea and assorted background became quite intrusive, so get your headphones on and enjoy... The painting I made of Ross for the cover was actually my second attempt, the other one seemed to have lost its way a bit, but I think this one sums it up well. Shout out to Monkeybird for helping this one come about. Also shout out to Carl. Carl is cool. As always, a review on iTunes is greatly appreciated...

Benjamin Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan talks with Daniel P Carter. What was initially intended as a discussion about the bands new album 'Dissociation' quickly turned into a reflection on the bands career and what it would mean to make the decision to end a 20+ year long career and walk away leaving the bands legacy in great form, with a critically acclaimed body of work.
