ABC’s Martin Fry joins Kyle Meredith to talk about the 40th anniversary of The Lexicon of Love, an album cited by critics as one of the greatest pop albums of all time. Fry is currently supporting the ruby anniversary on tour, and you can get tickets here.

The lead vocalist discusses the upcoming box set that compiles and celebrates the record, and also revisits their 1997 Skyscraping LP and their cover of Radiohead’s “High and Dry.” Fry also discusses the popularity cycles of an artist, his love of ’70s punk bands (especially Sex Pistols), and his appreciation for David Bowie’s musical characters.
