Stephin Merritt featured in today’s Guardian

Notting Hill Music’s Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields features in today’s Guardian talking about the upcoming album, ’50 Song Memoir’. Read the full article here.

“We made the Cramps sound orchestral / That’s an achievement I guess. / As for rehearsal, we made the Shaggs sound like Yes.” Lines this smart and funny don’t appear on pop records too often – and ones that refer to demented outsider artist band the Shaggs never do. Outside the work of Stephin Merritt, that is.”
