"The story of John McGeoch, one of the most innovative and influential guitarists of the past thirty years.

Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester and London, John McGeoch was described as the "post punk Jimmy Page", a man with an experimental, uncompromising and unique style.

He was a distinctive player who could conjure up dramatic riffs and sounds that had never been heard before.

During his life he performed with no fewer than nine bands on the cutting-edge of music, including Magazine, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Visage.

Yet, despite this rich musical pedigree, his story has remained untold - until now.

Radio 2s Pete Mitchell talks to Howard Devoto, Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Marr among others, as he shines a light on the life of this unsung guitar hero."

It's sad how completely obscure and underrated John McGeoch is. I stumbled upon this by chance and decided to upload it here for more people to listen to. Apologies for the lack of video content. It's more about the sound anyways. Enjoy.
