Jed Town is the saw-toothed musician from gothic experimental band Fetus Productions, post-punk Auckland band The Features and the revived X Features, and now country/psych trio Ghost Town. He's also produced and DJed electronic dance music under the names ICU and Jedeye. Consistently ahead of the trend, Town joins Kirsten Johnstone to reflect on the songs that have informed his own work.
