“Throwing Curveballs At The Moon”

That’s how The Pop Group’s Mark Stewart describes the creative process and it might also very well be the perfect description of the Pop Group’s career. Unconventional, ferociously innovative, and delightfully idiosyncratic, The Pop Group have never cared about what’s happening in the mainstream and instead adhered to the rhythms and sounds that they wanted to make. In this whirlwind of an interview, the Bristol-born Stewart talks to Alex about UFO’s, having tea with Sun Ra, The Sex Pistols, and how music bridged the racial divide in his town in the late 70s. He also talks about why he likes to hang out with oddballs, the avant-garde New York scene and a fight he once had with Allen Ginsberg.
