Description

Incredibly rare and in-depth interview with Ben 'The Rebel' Wallers, along with clips of his live set at Bristol's Exchange. Alastair Shuttleworth's two-part feature on Ben Wallers, 'Spakenkreuz', features one of only two video interviews Wallers has ever done in his 30 year career, having also been a member of The Country Teasers, The Male Nurse and other bands. A bona-fidé musical genius of our time, (credited by bands such as The Fat White Family as a key inspiration) and a daring, bold and hilarious satirist. In Part One, Ben talks about satire, William Burroughs, how he writes his lyrics, and performs (and explains the stories behind) songs such as 'David I Hope You Don't Mind' and 'Riding In The Sun'.
