"This Thursday, January 31st, BBC Radio 4 in the UK are broadcasting 'The Art Of
Sequencing' at 11:30am UK time. Guy Garvey from Elbow considers the challenge of
turning a collection of songs into a coherent single piece of art, and how this
has changed in the days of downloading single tracks.

Reading the chapters of a novel in the wrong order would be a strange thing to
do, but is the running order of an album still important now that you can easily
create your own playlists?

Pink Floyd felt so strongly that classic albums such as The Dark Side of the
Moon and Wish You Were Here should be heard as complete works that they took
their record company to court in an attempt to retain their artistic integrity.
Nick Mason, Pink Floyd's drummer talks about the court case and sequencing the
Floyd's albums.

Garvey has strong opinions about the integrity of an album's sequencing, and
elsewhere in the programme he talks to Peter Hammill about sequencing on his
solo albums and with his prog rock band Van der Graaf Generator."
