Punk legend Ivan Julian (Richard Hell and the Voidoids) talks new solo album, punk history (Episode 818)

Ivan Julian is a guitar monster … a punk pioneer … a founding member of Richard Hell & the Voidoids. He’s also played with bands and artists like the Clash, Matthew Sweet and Shriekback.

We met outside Rattleback Records in Chicago and talked about:

*“Swing Your Lanterns,” his new solo release on Pravda.
*The emerging New York scene in the 1970s
*Ivan’s record collection
*Ivan’s health and recovery (it’s all good news)
*The things that influenced the songwriting on “Swing Your Lanterns.”

See Ivan Julian at SPACE in Evanston on Wednesday, February 22!
