From Tom Tom Club to tUnE-yArDs

Summary

In this episode, Guy features tUnE-yArDs, an act he loves and believes are making the most exciting music around at the moment. Guy meets tUnE-yArDs' front woman Merrill Garbus, who reveals what inspires her and how she writes and records her music. There's also a unique insight into the creative and production process behind her elaborate music videos. BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne also joins Guy to give her own take on tUnE-yArDs' music and influences. There are also a few musical blasts from the past with an old favourite of Lauren’s - Tom Tom Club’s classic music video to ‘Genius of Love’, as well as a rare performance from Fela Kuti at Glastonbury in 1984.
