The podcast edit for our 9/16/11 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. This week, hor 2 features a conversation with August Darnell, better know to his fans as Kid Creole (Kid Creole and the Coconuts). Darnell recently released his new album, I Wake Up Screaming.

During the interview, Darnell and I discuss:

  • How he got his start in music
  • His work with Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band
  • Why he left to create Kid Creole and the Coconuts with Adriana Kaegi and fellow Buzzard Coati Mundi
  • How August developed the “Kid Creole” persona
  • His songwriting insights
  • The new album
  • Darnell’s two musicals.

In hour 1, we highlight a selection from Louise Robey‘s long-awaited Music Anthology Part 1 (1979-2009), which she released on September 15.

We also play classic tracks by Hazel O’Connor, INXS, David Bowie, XTC, Pseudo Echo and more of your favorite classic alternative artists.
