It’s a pretty rare turn of events, all things considered. Whatever it might be in life, when you go, you go. Leave. Done. Dusted.
Every now and then though, that ‘unfinished business’ aspect starts to play a part. Such seems to be the case with Ben Lost, the former, and now once-again honcho/A&R of estimable label enterprise Lost Language and helm of its ‘Exhibition’ mix-series.
There are additional factors in this of course… It’s the label from which many believe he drew his name and ‘Exhibition’ – the label’s primary mix-series – was something he conceived and first launched. On the eve of ‘Exhibition’s return, with its mightily impressive fifth edition, Tim Stark sat down with Ben to hopefully debunk some myths, authenticate a few others and find out what’s now what in the world of Ben Lost and Lost Language.
So welcome, Ben! How are things in general with you at the moment?
Great! Several pans in the fire. Two radio shows, a band, a club and a record label, all keeping me very busy. My wife and I recently moved to the Shropshire countryside with our six month old son. Salopian family life is beautiful. Everything stems from that.
