Elbow on The Seldom Seen Kid
12 March 2008, 15:49
Elbow's Guy Garvey came in to John Kennedy's studio to tell us about the band's fourth studio album The Seldom Seen Kid.
Guy Garvey, Mark Potter, Craig Potter, Richard Jupp and Pete Turner have been making music since the early nineties. Since their debut album, Asleep In The Back was released in 2001, Elbow have never been far away from the top of the charts, gaining critical acclaim for their particular brand of Mancunian indie-rock.
After the death of the band's close friend and Manchester legend Bryan Glancy, they decided to dedicate this, their fourth album, to his memory.
Guy Garvey, the band's frontman, came in to speak to John Kennedy about the ideas that influenced the album and to explain why it took them over two years to put together. You can listen to the interview below.
