Frank Turner on the Holloway Road
Play episode · 53 min

On the surface Frank Turner is a man of contrasts: the old Etonian who became a punk; the heavy metal fan who became a folk-influenced singer songwriter. On this walk through his old haunts on the Holloway Road in North London he reveals the inspiration for his change in musical direction, calling in at the venue Nambucca where “the scales fell from my eyes” and he discovered the power of “three chords and the truth”. In the empty venue he plays the songs he wrote about the creative scene there, before heading down the road to The Garage, where his passion for punk was ignited. Along the way he reflects on the history of the area, his own sofa-surfing experiences, his tattoos and his relationship with his mother.
