7: Turin Brakes discuss the 20th anniversary of 'The Optimist LP' (Series 3, Episode 7)

Turin Brakes are a British indie institution so we were delighted to get singer Olly Knights on the show to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the folk heroes' 2001 debut album 'The Optimist LP'. Olly reflects on the conception of the Mercury Prize-nominated record, how the band scaled the heights of chart success with its follow-up 'Ether Song' and how they've stayed together and delivered a steady stream of albums since. He also gives an update on how Turin Brakes album number 9 is coming along... Elsewhere on the episode, Rick and Sarah discuss why 2001 was such a pivotal year for the direction of the post-millennial music scene, from The Strokes heralding a new year zero for rock'n'roll and Slipknot taking nu-metal to Number One in the charts, to how the Neptunes and Timbaland were shaping the pop landscape.
