Grant Morrison DJs

Grant Morrison, renowned writer of Batman and Robin, All-Star Superman and several other revolutionary titles, has explored another creative facet of himself in the world of music as a guest DJ on the public radio KCRW (89.9 FM and KCRW.com), whose home base is in LA.

Morrsion stopped by the station and picked five songs that inspired him during a Guest DJ Project. His Project Set list included: “The Queen Is Dead” by The Smiths,” Mogadishu” by Baader Meinhof, “The Heater” by The Mutton Birds, “Blue Flowers” by Dr. Octagon, and “Joe Public” by The Rutles.

On Comic Book Resources, Morrison discusses one of his favorite songs from the cult comic series The Invisibles entitled “Mogadishu:”

“This particular song is just so cool, for me this is the essence of cool, this song, and it’s a really sexy, slow, kind of iconic song. And what it made me feel, it was very much of a time where I was doing The Invisibles comic, which was about a group of sexy terrorists, you know occult terrorists. And this would have been the theme song of The Invisibles. You know I think it says everything about that outlaw glamour, the life lived on the fringes of the law, and on an international scale, and I really love it for that. It’s the sexiest song about terrorism that you will ever hear.”

His full play list is available for download and as a podcast, as well as a full transcript of the original radio broadcast featuring Morrison can be found here.
