9/11 Special: Interview with Martin Sexton

Sep 11, 2011 by

That’s right, independent music legend Martin Sexton is joining us tonight, and since tech didn’t allow it to go live, we’ve got it here.


It’s not just because he`s on his way to play at Borderline in London on Monday, but that it’s 9/11 and his most recent album, Sugarcoating, focuses on just that.

The title track cuts straight through and asks many questions about the 9/11 attacks, but in a way where you might not even think about the words the first time as the tune is so upbeat and the melody so pleasing to the ears. Perhaps the song itself is an ironic critique of what it`s critiquing – the glossing over of mass media.

However, Martin is far from mass media, although his own independent label, Kitchen Table Records, is doing very well. He broke off from Atlantic in 2001 and hasn’t looked back, and we discuss this with him in the interview as well.

Thanks for joining us for this insightful and timely chat with Martin Sexton and if you’re really keen, grab up your tickets for his gig tomorrow night at Borderline in London.
