Inter View

Been thinking a lot about the point of and the value of the 'Band Interview'. The nonsense vs interesting engagement. Thoughtless vs the thought provoking. Often it's just a dull ache for interviewer and interviewee. Really it is. Like who is boring who? And there often seems to be this (hangover from another era - maybe when the printed press ruled the waves?) accepted notion, this given, that you are expected to do every interview presented to your band. And "thingy from the Worplesdon Trumpet wants an interview at 6pm at soundcheck, it has to be "F2F" (that's 'face to face' media fans) and he needs a plus one for the show".

It's boring.
It's weird.
Not always.
But mostly.

So we don't do it all the time. Often we don't give them. It's not arrogance. It's protecting the public.

Also our interviews tend to go much like this:

We done touring for about two weeks (Europe has november) and we just finished our little UK/Eire joint with the No Age. And it was as it would only be - mind-moving, guiding, amp-expanding, stimulating and rollerskating. Thank you Randy, Dean, Cundo, Scot, Bram, Elizabeth & John Weise. Europe look over your shoulder No Age along with the mighty, mighty Abe Vigoda is currently taking your continent by storm. City by City. Fall in .

Our new sound


Thank you Willis.
