2 Views • 18 February 2024

Strap in as Ian Astbury of @TheCULTofficial steps into Marvin Scott Jarrett's eclectic orbit. In a session that's anything but ordinary, Astbury unravels his deep-seated admiration for the enigmatic David Bowie and why he's all in on proclaiming Ethel Cain as the most pivotal American artist in recent memory. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. He'll spill the beans on his epic 12-year dance with The Doors – a journey of rock and roll mythology. Add to that, Astbury pulls back the curtain on his creative escapades with the legendary Rick Rubin. Plus, catch a glimpse into what the future holds for this rock icon. This ain’t just an idle chat; it's a deep dive into the psyche of a music maestro.

Blasting out of the throbbing core of LA’s Art District, MARVIN has taken over Spotify’s Studios to broadcast a pirate signal that disrupts the ice-cold norm of traditional artist Q&A sessions.

Capturing the audacious spirit of MARVIN Magazine—home to icons like Playboi, Carti, Aoki, Trent, St. Vincent, and the like—this podcast bashes through the sound barrier, bringing together artists from all corners of the spectrum for creative deep dives into tunes, threads, brushstrokes, and the cultural fabric that weaves it all together.

Your host, Marvin Scott Jarrett, is an icon himself in the culture wars and curates raw, unfiltered dialogues with kindred creatives. It's a mosh pit of authenticity sans script or angle.

Available on Spotify, YouTube, and any other place smart enough to know what’s really happening.
