Season 10 Episode 10 with Patrick Wagner

Season 10 Episode 10 with Patrick Wagner

Situations and elements of duality, dualisms and paradoxes have started to become more evident in my life. I think I started to become more aware of this maybe 6/7 years ago when I started thinking and writing about the importance of mindset for surviving and functioning in this very complex and volatile world which, with a bit of gentle and not so gentle encouragement, led me to starting this little podcast. Exploring the existence of these situations, the reluctance to see anything other than a binary outcome, the impact of centuries of societal conditioning towards either right or wrong answers, the impact of ego and questioning what reality means…is there a reality after all?…all these kind of things tend to take up a fair bit of my brain space. No wonder I don’t have any friends. Patrick Wagner has a long and important cultural history in shifting boundaries. His band Gewalt’s debut album from 2021, Paridies, is an astounding piece of work, especially the trance inducing title track and the slicing pummelling groove of Es Funktioniert. They shape their work sonically, visually and lyrically with big topics that challenge our own comfort zones, our own interpretations of reality and most importantly those feelings, those dualisms…there’s a sense of order yet chaos, fearless yet vulnerable And @GewaltBand are back with a new physical single - Trans - backed with Monika In Scherben – both classic songs in their own right that highlight the story of Monika Donner – and they have announced a second album called Doppeldenk to follow in mid-2024. https://www.iwannajumplikedeedee.com I Wanna Jump Like Dee Dee is the music podcast that does music interviews differently.

Season 10 Episode 9 with Gianluca Buccellati

Season 10 Episode 9 with Gianluca Buccellati

I think more and more these days about how we’ve sleep walked into allowing our world to become one that doesn’t serve us, one that does its best to prevent our ever-evolving identity to find its path, to do things on our own terms and away from being defined in a certain way by preconceptions or however our brains uses predictions of who others are and who we are. Maybe that’s just me getting older and grumpier. Probably true. But what's also true is that I have definitely experienced the wheels of reinvention in my own life. That feeling of “I’m not a number”, the need to find out who the fuck I am. It took me a lot longer to get here, but what’s a few decades amongst friends. Luca Buccellati rose to prominence as a composer, producer, collaborator, music partner, working with some extremely creative and successful artists, such as Lana del Rey, Arlo Parks, Big Piig, sophie meiers. Add a Grammy nomination and a Mercury prize for good measure. He has his own artist project that has been simmering, let’s say, called White China and he has now released another album which is called Hang Up The Lights. It’s a beautifully rich, diverse and personal collection of songs that builds on his masterful songwriting which you can hear on previous White China releases going back to 2018 but with this record, there is a very different lens and outlook on what’s important in life. https://www.iwannajumplikedeedee.com I Wanna Jump Like Dee Dee is the music podcast that does music interviews differently.

Season 10 Episode 8 with Lesley Woods (audio only)

Season 10 Episode 8 with Lesley Woods (audio only)

I interviewed Andrew Butler from Hercules and Love Affair last year and he made a really great point about how the most exciting music is produced when one “scene” starts to fade but the next “big thing” hasn’t yet arrived – l think of it like when a new star is being born from all this gas and dust coming together - before the “rules” of that genre are established (cos that’s what happens, right?) so it’s much more volatile, experimental and liberated. So, just delving into the past a little bit….in the late 70’s, it was time for a change…bands like Bush Tetras, The Pop Group, The Raincoats, Gang of Four, Pigbag, The Mekons and the band that Lesley fronted for a brief but hugely influential time were creating a fork in the road. The Au Pairs took their music in a direction that was as exciting as it was inventive, through a mighty rhythm section that made your hips shake (well, they made mine rattle even then) and the taut, jagged guitar and Lesley's distinctive vocals and lyrics. They looked great, they sounded great, they were singing about stuff that mattered - misogyny, racism, conformism, relationships - and were, to my mind at least, leaders in creating a wave of bands whose impact is being felt more than ever. Pioneers isn’t too strong a word in my opinion. Anyway, after the Au Pairs disbanded, Lesley went on a long hiatus doing something completely different - she became an immigration lawyer, but she has picked up her guitar again and there is a lot of stuff going on which I think is hugely exciting. https://www.iwannajumplikedeedee.com I Wanna Jump Like Dee Dee is the music podcast that does music interviews differently.

Season 10 Episode 5 with Alan Palomo

Season 10 Episode 5 with Alan Palomo

Since I started this podcast malarkey (maybe before actually, maybe the podcast just encouraged me to be more open about it - gawd, this sounds like a confessional!), I’ve developed a fascination with how music can whisk you off into a distant world, a kind of musical Narnia, not just through the lyrics, but the song structures, the atmosphere, the relationship of current music with past decades (cos we interpret and measure music by decades, right? - although it will be interesting as to what characterises the current decade and the one we just escaped). As always, I’m at risk of becoming tediously rooted in the theoretical, but I’m really interested in what makes musicians go to these places: what’s influenced their core mindset and how this plays into what’s influencing them at the time they sit down and write and how, in this fast-paced & volatile world, the music they write keeps pace with their influences and how they themselves keep pace with what seems like an exponential growth in “stuff” that influences us. @alan_palomo has so many strings to his bow – he’s a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, musician, filmmaker, DJ, and producer – and always, at least it appears to me, produced music on his own terms and in keeping with that, his latest, wonderful LP called World of Hassle – it’s the first under his own name – is a glorious collage that takes you to a world that’s got one foot in a past decade, one in the here and now and one in an augmented reality game. https://www.heysunday.co/i-wanna-jump-like-dee-dee I Wanna Jump Like Dee Dee is the music podcast that does music interviews differently.
