PMB S03E05 Basil: The Kirchin Experience (Ivor & Basil Kirchin Band, The Basil Kirchin Band, Johnny Keating, Broadcast, The High Llamas, Stereolab, Basil Kirchin & Jack Nathan)

PMB S03E05 Basil: The Kirchin ExperienceThis week we celebrate the life and work of one of Britain’s greatest big band leaders, soundtrack composers, library music composers and time/mind-bending musicians, Basil Kirchin.

Hull City of Culture 2017 recently put on a weekend of the great man’s music, which DJ Bongoboy was lucky enough to attend.

Inspired by that, we’ve put our own tribute together. There’s music from every part of Basil’s life in music, as well as tracks by bands who have been inspired by him.
