interviews

here is an interview with Denton’s Video: By transBLENDER When I go see a concert, especially one with acts of unfamiliarity to me, I treat it as if I’m a child in the make-a-wish foundation. Allow me to explain. In this unlikely and hypothetical event, I’m dying of a benjamin button disorder or something, and […]

Interview with GRASS WIDOW by transBLENDER I missed seeing Kill Rock Stars alums Grass Widow play at SXSW, and goodness knows how many times they played, so really I have no excuse. I am in regret of that decision now. I’ve been listening to their LP “Past Time”, and though it reminds me of bands […]

Interview with two-sevenths of When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth and one-third of Pterodactyl. Maybe in time I can interview the other five members of WDRTE. In January, I conducted an interview with George Dishner and Jesse Hodges, dueling lead singers of Austin grunge ensemble: WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH. Currently they have an EP on Emperor […]

Interview with Matty McLoughlin of The Soft Pack (formerly known as the Muslims). This interview was conducted right after Thanksgiving, but I have been too slammed to put it up on the web. Parade of Flesh: First obvious, almost obligatory question:  Why the abrupt name change from The Muslims to The Soft Pack; and any […]
