He's the voice of The Stone Roses, but saying that doesn't give a fair account of what Ian Brown has achieved over the past 25 years. He has carved out an impressive solo career too, along with some inspired collaborations. He's a frontman that has inspired many, along with creating music that's best described as iconic. http://www.ianbrown.co.uk/

With the resumption of Pixies’ musical odyssey, his reputation is set to continue to grow. Dan looks at his pre, post, and Pixies music on this week’s Back & Forth. http://www.frankblack.net/
Dan chatted to Joey Santiago of Pixies while they were in Dublin late last year for two shows at The Olympia Theatre. Iconic and highly influential, Pixies are back with their first new material in more than two decades. There’s even talk of a new album. Hear more with Dan on The Alternative.
