Show Notes Chapter Markers

This is the second part of my conversation with Malcolm Garrett. 

It really is more of the same in a good way. The opinions are as strong, the energy is as high, the connections are great, and the stories are fascinating. 

In between a set of eclectic and considered song choices we cover a lot of topics including:  

  • Malcolm’s love of Sigue Sigue Sputnik and how influential and prescient they were. 
  • His fascination with the future, his Jerry Andersen collection and James Bond.
  • The move into Digital & his role in merging & connecting the Digital & Analogue worlds. 
  • What makes bad design. 
  • The connection between Throbbing Gristle and Sex Pistol 
  • Getting an MBE
  • The work he does in Education & his desire to raise the profile of the Design Industry.

Malcolm’s song choices are: 

30–40 Garbage               Stupid Girl                        1995

40-50    Rammstein        Engel                                   1997

50-60    X-TG                      All That Is My Own      2012

60-66    Billie Eilish         No Time to Die               2021

Enjoy :-)
