On this weeks XS Noize Music Podcast Mark Millar talks to Wayne Hussey from The Mission. The Mission release their new album, “Another Fall From Grace” on 30th September 2016.
Another Fall From Grace was produced by Wayne Hussey and Tim Palmer and features guest backing vocals from Gary Numan, Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), Ville Valo (HIM), Julianne Regan (All About Eve) & Evi Vine.
“For me, this new Mission album is the long lost missing link between the Sisters Of Mercy’s First & Last & Always and The Mission’s God’s Own Medicine, both albums of course that I was heavily involved in making. I set out this time with the intention of making an album that sounds like 1985. The fact that I feel this has largely been achieved is down to my renewed love for the jingle jangle shimmer of the electric 12 string guitar which featured heavily on those two previously mentioned albums and now the new Mission album.”

This weeks featured track is Chick Quest. The initial concept behind Chick Quest was to combine chord progressions from old 60’s Italian Western film scores, such as work by Ennio Morricone, with the dancey Post-Punk of the late 70’s and early 80’s like Talking Heads, B52’s, Manicured Noise or The Clash. The band name itself is a nod to cheesy 60’s B-film titles and is meant to be taken as “A girl on a quest” as opposed to “Guys on a quest for chicks”.
