The Brits’ Get Back with John Leckie, Ian McNabb and Derek Forbes


May 31, 2022

After shows post-Get Back with guests representing
American musicians, multi-generation female fans, and the film’s
maker (Peter Jackson), conspicuously missing from the SATB
conversation to this point has been the POV of British
fans/musicians. No longer: today’s guests are drawn from the UK
music scene and ALL have a deep fandom for The Fabs – some have
even worked with one or more. 

Producer John Leckie first came to SATB in late 2020 to discuss his
experiences working on John and Yoko’s 1970 Plastic Ono
Band
 albums; thereafter, he appeared
at Fab4ConJam to recall working on All
Things Must Pass
. Afterward, his career during the ’80s and
beyond included working as producer for some top UK talent,
including, Stone Roses, XTC, Radiohead…and Simple Minds. By sheer
happenstance, John has worked with BOTH of his co-guests, who are
new to SATB: bassist Derek Forbes worked with a number of
Scottish acts, including The Subs, Simple Minds, Big Country,
etc, while Ian McNabb fronted The Icicle Works: “Birds Fly (Whisper
to a Scream).” ALL are hardcore Beatle fans going back a ways, and
each fully immersed themselves in the 8 hours of Get
Back.

But the conversation ran far broader, covering their fandom during
the 70s, working with an ex-Beatle, the Liverpool scene
post-Beatles, Stiff records, musical influences, Dan Richter,
Mickie Most, Wings, and a lot more. It’s a freewheeling
conversation and you haven’t heard the last of these guys on
the Something About The
Beatles
 podcast.
