Short but sweet interview with Watt talking his first solo album and tour, in which he got by with a little help from his friends, all of whom are ridiculously more well-known than he is. See also: this half-hour audio interview with Minutemen drummer George Hurley that I haven’t listened to yet but I’m sure it’s great.
Here’s a great chat with the TAD main man talking the new remasters of their Sub Pop records. There’s another one on Noisey, too.
I’m not a Cohen fan but this in-depth profile, published just weeks before his death, was still an enthralling read.
My friend John is way more connected with the Irish scene than I am at the minute, alas.
The record that gave that band their name, but little else: this is the eclectic sound of late ‘80s SST which isn’t to everyone’s taste, especially if you’re only familiar with the Black Flag hardcore side, but it’s right up my alley.
Good tips here. My collecting days are behind me, but I’ve got a few LPs, and there are a few more I’d like to have, but I need a better player to get the most out of them.
Posting this not only because it’s a fantastic record from an amazing band, but also because this has the experimental closing track ‘Things Fall Apart’ that’s missing from the rip I found online a while back. Come on Numero Group or somebody, get this stuff reissued!
Never mind the order; this is worth sharing just for the selection as a whole, only a fraction of which I’ve heard. On a related note, P4k more recently listed their choice of the 50 best IDM albums, a few of which I actually bought and listened to more than once. Imagine that.
Space grind, doom jazz, avant metal and more in Enlarged Heart Radio 17.
A full album of early tone-fucking sounds from Toshimaru Nakamura, the guy who collaborated with US power-jazz trio Many Arms on their intense 2015 LP.
Good profile on an interesting individual, from his highs in the downtown scene to his lows sleeping rough on the same streets were he was once lauded.
'Ghoul Whispers', from the upcoming collaborative LP by Sly & the Family Drone and Dead Neanderthals. They're playing the Raw Power festival in London this May if you're around; I wish I could be.
Very informative. Filing this for future reference.
First came the TAD remasters and now this, which took me completely by surprise. I wonder how Sub Pop or the band got the rights from SST?
The beating heart of that band, literally and figuratively. I interviewed her and Dylan for Thumped a couple of years back. (And if I could do it again, I’d talk with her for more than 20 minutes.)
Blood Incantation, Virgin Prunes and more in Enlarged Heart Radio 16.
Post-punk disc(h)ord, bass-heavy grooves and fun house jams in Enlarged Heart Radio 15.
Warning for autoplay YouTube video. Also, it’s hardly the worst song of all time. But the story behind it is fascinating.
Maximum volume, heavy on the swing (and an Xmas surprise) in Enlarged Heart Radio 14.
Mind-bending psych, transcendental death, blackened dulcimer (?!) and more in the latest Enlarged Heart Radio.
He seems jaded by the music business, or rather the business of doing music. It’s understandable, to an extent. At least he’s still enjoying the making of music. Here’s a better one with Hank Shteamer where he’s talking just that.
The Kentucky noise band in digital streaming form.
Women’s thoughts on music made my women, in whole or in part.
Or, that time a great noise rock band opened for Marilyn Manson.
