Talk Talk - Don McGlashan

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2009

In this episode of Talk Talk musician Don McGlashan discusses politics, growing up and the art of communicating emotions and ideas, with journalist Finlay MacDonald. The Talk Talk host starts by asking McGlashan to explain how he managed to offend Kiwi seafood lovers across the country with a political analogy during the 2008 general election. Then the pair explore McGlashan's early inspirations and musical development. McGlashan finishes with a live rendition of his 2009 single 'Marvellous Year', complete with accordian, theremin and strings.

It took me until late in Blam Blam Blam, say when I was 20, 21 before I really started wanting to write songs and I was quite a slow writer, still am.
