Kazuo Ishiguro - singer songwriter

Happened to hear an interview with the Nobel laureate on Radio 4's Front Row last Wednesday:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09hp2m7
 
In his (very) young days he wrote song lyrics and sang as well, with a group. And did the rounds of record companies with his demos ...
Says that writing songs was his apprenticeship, and that he learned a lot from Dylan.
The relevant bit begins at minute 21.  
 
Surely he must be familiar with Clive's poems and song lyrics, but has he actually heard Pete singing them??? If not, he should be enlightened (he lives in North London, perhaps nearby one of us) Smiley

Love his lyrics for Stacey Kent. A touch of the surreal about them.
