Another Conversation With Martin Atkins

Best known for his work in post-punk and industrial groups including Public Image LtdMinistryNine Inch NailsPigface, and Killing Joke, drummer, Martin Atkins has many fascinating stories to tell. In the next edition of Life Elsewhere, Martin shares never before revealed intrigues of his time in and out of Public Image Ltd. He talks of his often uneasy relationship with John Lydon and the mutually volatile association with Keith Levene. With his charming Midlands brogue, Martin Atkins recalls unexpected moments – when backstage at a concert two of his (then) very young sons had giggly-fun pulling back the ears of an atypically docile Mr. Lydon. And, he blames Sir Paul McCartney for Public Image Ltd not being able to play in Japan, (listen for details). The question of age comes up in the conversation,  Martin suggests that to have survived all these years of the non-stop rounds of a rough and tumble life on the road with an often motley cast of characters, is quite possibly a miracle. Martin’s buoyant energy and enthusiasm for life and rock ’n’ roll permeate through the airwaves as you enjoy one of the best raconteurs in the business.
