The two also discuss recording Nick’s Labour of Lust and Dave Edmunds’ Repeat When Necessary at the same time, the lasting impact of Rockpile, and the 30th anniversary of his comeback album, The Impossible Bird. Lowe also tells us of a biography that’s due out in the fall and plans for the next EP.
