Craig Leon: Ghost riding on Sirius B

October 2013

Since producing seminal albums by The Ramones, Suicide and Blondie, Craig Leon has had an active career in the music biz – from TV work and country recordings to his 1981 New Age synthesizer album for the Takoma label. He talks to Jennifer Lucy Allan about his early stints in the studio and the vagaries of the archival reissue market.
