This conversation is me chatting with writer, reviewer, musician and record store guy, Jeremy Taylor.
If he’s not at the counter offering his wisdom he’s in the back room at Slow Boat Records updating their site. He’s a record reviewer for RNZ’s Nine to Noon Show, a former Stuff food blogger, the writer of a book about rugby in the lead up to the 2015 Rugby World Cup and a musician. He was in the bands Throw and Cinematic, has released a couple of solo albums and plays in a variety of bands – covers and originals, he’s a singer for hire. A writer for hire. A raconteur on Facebook and in real life…
I first met Jeremy over a decade ago and have got to know him through his music and through conversations at gigs – usually down the back and while the gig is happening, or after, in the shop, pondering the state of music…
This conversation was recorded in 2015 – it was to be one of the first episodes of the podcast. I lost the file. Then I found it. Worried I’d missed the timeframe to be promoting his book (that train has sailed!) and struggled to edit down a very long conversation.
Today marks the second birthday of Sweetman Podcast – it’s two years since I released my first conversation.
So it seemed a good time to release this chat with Jeremy Taylor – a big, wide-ranging conversation to mark two years of having big, wide-ranging conversations.
I hope you enjoy it.
