[Full episode] Courtney Barnett, Thundercat, Right Said Fred, Michael Wex, Crazy Smooth

Q with Tom Power

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett talks about her personal new documentary, Anonymous Club, and the toll that touring took on her mental health in 2018. Thundercat discusses his album It Is What It Is, and opens up about losing his close friend and collaborator Mac Miller. On the 30th anniversary of their debut album, Up, Fred and Richard Fairbrass of Right Said Fred tell us how their megahit I'm Too Sexy came together. Bestselling author Michael Wex explains how a Yiddish opera was almost lost to history — and how he helped fill in a few blanks when a manuscript was rediscovered. Street dancer and choreographer Crazy Smooth talks about his show, In My Body, which challenges the myth that aging is the death knell for a dancer.

EP 215 | Courtney Barnett Documentary- Anonymous Club

Mulligan Stew

Our guest Danny Cohen is a Melbourne-based director who has filmed and photographed some of the most interesting and influential figures in contemporary music. Shot on vivid 16mm film over a three-year period, ANONYMOUS CLUB chronicles notoriously shy, Melbourne-based musician Courtney Barnett’s ups and downs on the world tour for her album Tell Me How You Really Feel. Featuring Barnett’s unguarded narration from her audio diary, recorded on a dictaphone provided by filmmaker Danny Cohen, the film delivers frank and unprecedented insight into Barnett’s creative process, the sacrifices and inner conflicts set in motion by fame, and the sometimes dark backdrop to her whimsical, relatable poetic compositions. Based for much of her adult life in Melbourne, Courtney Barnett first found critical acclaim with 2013’s The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, and broke into the mainstream in 2015 with her debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. Garnering a coveted Best New Artist Grammy nomination and numerous other accolades, the album stands as a generational classic. Barnett is also a powerhouse live act, playing slots at festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Primavera, and Lollapalooza. In 2021, she released Things Take Time, Take Time, a remarkable artistic step forward. Anonymous Club opens across Canada over the next several weeks.
