Best Of Times... Róisín Murphy
Welcome to The Best Of Times podcast brought to you by Lush and The Quietus. The Best Of Times podcast is presented by John Doran. Over the coming months he will be talking to people about some of the best and worst times they have been through and hopefully find out how these experiences have made them who they are today. So far he has interviewed Sleaford Mods, The Specials and Kristin Hersh; today’s guest is Róisín Murphy. Róisín grew up in Arklow, Ireland but moved with her family to Manchester, when she was 12. She formed the group Moloko with Mark Brydon in 1995, straddling the pop, art rock, trip hop divide, cementing their place in the popular consciousness with the tracks Sing It Back, The Time Is Now and Familiar Feeling. Her solo career since has provided evidence of a restless, creative mind, and she has released music ranging from the leftfield pop of Ruby Blue, made with tech jazz producer Matthew Herbert to a recent series of sumptuous deep house EPs (made in conjunction with Maurice Fulton). She has recently moved into film making and has a new single due out this Spring, made with Parrot from Sheffield electronic mainstays, All Seeing I. This podcast was produced and engineered by Luise London and co-produced by Andrew Paine. The theme music is by Oh The Gilt. The Best Of Times is available now above on the Lush Player but will be available to download as a podcast from iTunes from next Monday morning.
