Daily: Northern Powerhouse – MAXÏMO PARK’s Paul Smith rocks down in lockdown

The Bunker

How does a band make widescreen, forward-thinking communal rock music when they’re suddenly locked down miles away from one another? And when your keyboard player has moved to Australia? Paul Smith of Newcastle postpunk adventurers Maxïmo Park tells Dorian Lynskey about finding inspiration in strange places, recording an album on WhatsApp and jerky FaceTime calls, writing about Brexit and Grenfell… and the myth of levelling up the North. “Whatever we might do to try and conceal it, our true nature always comes up through the cracks.”“My faith in Boris Johnson to roll out the vaccine and save the live industry is low – and it wasn’t high to begin with.”“I don’t want to be the North East guy with a chip on his shoulder… but it’s going to take a lot of levelling up to level up Stockton.” “The live music industry is worth a lot to the Chancellor, whether he knows it or not”Presented by Dorian Lynskey. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic. Logo and branding by Mark Taylor. Audio production by Alex Rees.

Shatter the myth Paul Smith

What Were You Thinking?

Designer. Curator. Living legend. Sir Paul Smith shares the highs and lows from his fashion journey which spans 50 years this year. What was the first collection he showed at Fashion Week like? How did he feel going to Chanel shows in the presence of Coco Chanel? Has the thought of retiring ever crossed his mind? Sir Paul talks us through the unique dilemma of deciding what to wear when you’re getting knighted in the morning and married in the afternoon, David Bowie giving customers in his store the shock of their lives and the art of being a collector (we didn’t say hoarder, okay).  Check out our Instagram to see the looks we discuss @whatwereyouthinkingpodcast and follow us on Twitter and TikTok @WWYT_podcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
