#034 Ned Beckett

We have been angling for a booking agent to guest on the show since launching the podcast, and finally we have one!

Ned Beckett is the founder of the Little Big agency, represents Aphex Twin, and is as well placed as anyone to make the case for the contribution made by agents to the careers of artists and live music as a whole.

We discuss his formative period with Warp Records, the development of electronic music in the live space, and the challenges of founding an agency when you have no idea what an agency does.

Ned is a super interesting guy and this is a great conversation... a different perspective to previous guests, you will enjoy this one.

We would be extremely grateful if you would support the show on Patreon. There's two tiers... one which gets the show ad-free plus at least a couple of bonus podcasts each month, and a higher tier which additionally gets you all the music we release on Hotflush ahead of time and in HD formats. And also some extra music that you can't get anywhere else. We think it's great value, so if you can do it... we'd love you forever.
