Life In The Stocks : An Evening with Paddy Considine
An Evening with Paddy Considine.
Hosted by Matt Stocks, published author and presenter of the iTunes chart-topping podcast, Life In The Stocks.
Featuring a live interview between Paddy & Matt, an audience Q&A session, and a live acoustic set from Paddy’s band, Riding The Low.
Paddy Considine is one of the finest actors this country has ever seen, someone who commits himself to each role with a burning intensity.
Yet throughout his career – his life, even – music has played a key role, whether that’s to relax, as a point of inspiration, or as a lens to view the world through.
Riding The Low is his group, an outlet for audio expression that produces results every bit as gripping, and unrelenting as his acting work.
Their new album ‘The Death Of Gobshite Rambo’ is out now, with its bruising sonics finally finding a place in British music – it’s worth aligning alongside Northern outsider voices such as Michael Head, early Verve, or aspects of Doves’ work.
‘The Death Of Gobshite Rambo’ has a narrative thrust, with Paddy Considine’s songwriting touching on personal loss, philosophy, anxiety, and the class struggle.
With British life still excluding working class voices from the mainstream, Riding The Low’s work carries increased resonance, alongside the refined, finessed songwriting.
