Mat Osman & Scott Lavene

This episode was recorded March 2, 2024 in front of a live audience at The Moth Club in London. I was just wrapping up a solo tour with Scott Lavene as the support act, and he was also my first guest of the afternoon. We talked about his upcoming record and his excellent memory for what he had for breakfast each day of our tour. My second guest was the amazing Mat Osman, who was the bassist and founding member of the band Suede as well as an author of several books. We spoke about his most recent excellent novel The Ghost Theater, milestones from the early days of Suede, his love of London, and so much more. It was a beautiful afternoon at The Moth Club, and great to relive here.

That’s How I Remember It is a podcast that examines the connection between memory and creativity. Each episode will feature a discussion between Craig Finn and one creator — a musician, author, filmmaker, etc. — about the role that memory plays in their art. These conversations will reveal the different ways each creator synthesizes their remembered life experiences to tell stories about themselves and the world we live in. This podcast is not a nostalgia trip, but rather an exciting conversation about storytelling, process, and the desire to create art that reflects the world the artist has experienced. That’s How I Remember It is co-produced and distributed by Talkhouse.
