In¬†Long Players: Writers on the Albums That Shaped Them, 50 great writers reflect on the records that have become part of their story.¬†Eimear McBride¬†falls under the cigarette-stained spell of the Tindersticks at drama school in the 90s;¬†Joe Dunthorne¬†has his teenage, Warhammer-obsessed mind blown by the elegantly deranged stoner hip-hop of Cypress Hill;¬†Ben Okri¬†turns to Miles Davis‚Äôs¬†Kind of Blue¬†to help him make a life-changing decision.¬†For¬†Deborah¬†Levy¬†the effect of Bowie’s¬†Ziggy Stardust¬†is “nothing less than throwing petrol at the naked flame of teenage longing and desire for another sort of life”. At the Social all four of them¬†will join the book‚Äôs editor Tom Gatti to play cuts from their favourite albums and talk about music and writing, adolescence and the intense pleasures of the LP form.

Plus legendary pop culture writer, Michael Bracewell in conversation about his new book, Souvenir (and the album that changed him), with publisher of White Rabbit, Lee Brackstone.
Music from special guest DJ Justin Robertson.
