Record Club

In association with The Vinyl Factory

‘When I die, just keep playing the records.’ Jimi Hendrix

Joining the Record Club this month is outlaw icon, veteran raconteur and figurehead for counterculture Howard Marks. A former MI6 agent and ‘the most sophisticated drugs baron of all time,’ he once held over forty aliases and is best known as Mr Nice. Current projects include his spoken word show  ‘Scholar, Smuggler, Prisoner, Scribe,’ and his recent discussion in conversation with American activist and poet John Sinclair on his campaign for social justice. From a Welsh mining town to nuclear physics at Oxford University, to solitary confinement in one of America’s toughest federal penitentiaries, Howard shares his soundtrack to ‘the good times and the bad.’

‘Howard Marks has been everywhere, done everything, and seen almost everyone along the way.’ The BBC
