The Octopus Project // Jane Weaver

Posted by on Aug 17, 2016

The members of The Octopus Project have known each other since they were kids and this familiarity is in great evidence as they talk about how the Guns n Roses’ Appetite for Destruction, the theme song from 2001: A Space Oddysey and a live show by The Jesus Lizard. Along the way, the three end up talking about abandoning the trumpet, the connection between music and emotion and the difference between going to a show in 90’s versus today.

Then British singer-songwriter Jane Weaver shares her experience of seeing Kate Bush performing Wuthering Heights on Top of the Pops when she was just five years old, and how Bush’s look, dance and singing style still influence her work today.
