Performing live in session on this week’s Hello GoodBye we had the lo-fi, living legend Jad Fair. Jad was joined by regular collaborators Mick Hobbs on guitar and Gilles Rieder on percussion. Jad Fair embarked upon a musical career when he formed the group Half Japanese with his brother David back in the late 1970's. Jad has since gone on to carve out an incredibly impressive and mind-bogglingly productive career, with over 50 albums to his name (including a multitude of collaborative projects with the likes of Mo Tucker, Daniel Johnston, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub and many many more.) Jad’s childlike enthusiasm and creativity remain entirely undiminished and he is nowadays almost as well known for his striking and poetic ‘paper-cuts’ artwork as he is for his music.
A collection 109 songs from Jad's gargantuan back-catalogue are currently available on the triple CD Beautiful Songs through Fire Records.
