Re: Sean O'Hagan & Friends: We Start Counting

"Don’t miss We Start Counting – Sean O’Hagan’s cinema-inspired opening event of Mind on the Run: The Basil Kirchin Story. Discover why this forgotten genius has influenced Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, Evan Parker, The Specials’ Jerry Dammers and more – Hull City Hall, 17-19 February.

Where do you start with Basil Kirchin’s music? A lifelong musical experimenter, Kirchin’s back catalogue takes innovation to the next level – but he’s not always the easiest artist to introduce yourself to.

This playlist, from multi-instrumentalist and Kirchin fan Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas, Microdisney) is a brilliant place to start. Taking in Soho-inspired documentary soundtracks, proto-funk and delicate library music, this overview of Kirchin gives you the chance to get to know this quiet man from Hessle Road.

Sean’s notes below talk through the instrumentation and influence behind each of these tracks, giving a sense of what they each mean to him. Share your thoughts on what these tracks mean to you in the comments below, or let us know on Twitter or Facebook."
