Nick Kelly joins me to talk about Twist, the debut album by his band The Fat Lady Sings, released on East West Records in 1991. The NME called Twist, “a trembling monster of a pop record” and declared The Fat Lady Sings, “Ireland’s Finest band.” Five singles were released from Twist (‘Dronning Maud Land’, ‘Man Scared’, ‘Arclight’, ‘Deborah’, and the title track Twist’) and all went Top 20 in Ireland. It's a long chat that takes in everything from witnessing The Fall and the Michael Clark Ballet Company's performance of I Am Curious Oranj to making a film about cycling to Glastonbury to raise awareness of more sustainable gigging models.
