with 3 comments

… all brought to you by Lucien Johnson and his band of merry funky men.

Lucien Johnson is a multi-instrumentalists and composer based out of  Wellington, NZ. Featured in this podcast are a discussion with Lucien about his work and music from a group I am quite excited about the Shogun Orchestra.

Unfortunately the album isn’t ready for release. But when it is I will definitely let you know.

You can keep up with Lucien by way of his site here and at his page on Myspace here for the Shogun Orchestra (which by the way features the Dan Yeabsely, Chris Yeabsley, Justin Clarke, Mike Fab, Toby Laing, Joe Lindsay, Tim Jaray, Adan Tijerina, and Paul Hoskins and of course Lucien Johnson).

Get ready to hear elements of George Clinton, Fela Kuti, Mulatu Astatke,  Santana (dare I say?) and even the Skatalites with a distinctively Kiwi accent.
