Stephen Street is a legendary British music producer best known for his work with The Smiths, The Cranberries and Blur. Stephen also collaborated with Morrissey on his debut album Viva Hate following the split of The Smiths.
Thirty years ago a young northern skinhead band named Bradford were handed the baton by Morrissey to blaze a trail in English Indie music after The Smiths’ demise. Stephen Street immediately signed the band to his new label and put out their debut album ‘Shouting Quietly’. Thirty years later the band return to release the follow-up ‘Bright Hours’ and this time Stephen Street has joined the band.
Mark Millar caught up with Stephen to talk about the album, how he got into music production and some of the albums he has worked on in his incredible career.
