Episode details

In the second issue of Cold Lips, the author and filmmaker Graham Bendel wrote about the 90s clubs that got indie kids away from the acid house. Without DJ Martin Green’s Smashing, would there be Britpop? The club's a component of the time where my novel’s set. I caught up with the DJ legend before the TS Eliot awards.
