Music On Your Own Terms 125 - Martin Atkins - The Secret To Success Is Unneutered Zombie Kittens

It is with great pleasure that I present my interview with the one and only Martin Atkins, drummer for Public Image Limited, Killing Joke, Ministry, his own band Pigface, entrepreneur, college lecturer, author, and international speaker. Martin talks about his journey, from his dad getting him a drum kit and setting him up with gigs, the early punk scene and joining PIL, to noticing the mismanagement of the bands, he was in and turning their finances around through merch. We learn about how Martin got into teaching students through his experiences with touring and the music business, writing books based on those classes, how that led to talking at music festivals, and the impetus of turning the collections of memorabilia from the past 40 plus years into a museum. We also find out how Ivar Bjornson, guitarist for the Norwegian band Enslaved, taught Martin the importance of saying YES, to everything.

Joining me for this episode is an original member of Lez Zeppelin, solo artist, owner of Hidden Pond Productions and one half of the musical comedy duo Vickie And Nickie, Lisa Brigantino.

We also hear how Lisa has crafted her own business around her music supervision, licensing and rights clearance agency, which also allows her the freedom to tour and create music as and when she wants to, as well as creating a popular musical comedy act with her sister Lori.

For the National Sexual Assault Hotline call 1-800-656-4673 or visit https://www.rainn.org.

In this episode I talk to Matt Connard about his studio project War Chariot. Since the interview, it was announced that War Chariot has broken up, however Matt is planning on forging ahead with his own solo music, and I look forward to hearing what he comes up with. In this conversation, we hear how Matt got into music, how the band got started and we get deep into some Swedish death metal talk, along with some guitar nerd conversation about amp tones. Matt also shares his background in business and some killer tips for musicians to be mindful of their long term goals, and think in a more entrepreneurial way about their business. Finally, Matt shares some extremely personal experiences with mental health, addiction and a traumatic event as a child, that he attributes his former lifestyle to. This is an incredibly deep and moving conversation, and I am extremely grateful to Matt for sharing his story, in the hope that it will give anyone struggling with mental health, a ray of hope to see that you are not alone and you can get through your difficulties, no matter how intimidating they feel.
