I put in a request for an interview with Choice Music Award nominees ASIWYFA and was lucky enough to get it! Truth be told it an was especially graceless night for me at the Crane Lane last Friday. I was nervous about this one, and pretty sure I said all the wrong things to the lads prior the interview. Anyway, I was introduced to Rory (guitar), Chris (drums) and Johnny (bass) came along soon after and the interview got underway. It was Tony's (guitar) birthday and I was told that he was off having dinner at Milano's with his Dad, bless. I started by asking them how ASIWYFA came together, maybe an obvious question but I was curious about their musical backgrounds. This question got them chatting about the work they put in to get to this point in their careers. It was great to hear them talk about this. I ended our little chat by asking them who they would tour with, if they could tour with anyone!!! I had to know. They mentioned At the Drive In, Deftones and The Smashing Pumpkins. Epic. We left it at that as they were about to go on. It was my first time seeing them live and it was an incredible show. Local heroes Hope Is Noise supported them, always amazing! ASIWYFA brought the party to the The Quad after the show where C!ties were playing a late gig. Those lads never disappoint! ASIWYFA was the most fun I've had at a live show in a while. Thanks to Mitch and Dave @ Livewire for organising the gig. Massive thanks to Livewire and ASIWYFA for the interview! Interview w ASIWYFA by NewNoiseCork Cheers for checking it out!
Massive thanks to Mick Roe (Richter Collective) for coming on the show today. He talked to me about signing The Redneck Manifesto and working with Japanese label Parabolica. Mick also had a bit to say about what we can expect from The Richter Collective in 2010, without spoiling too many surprises! I had a lot of fun chatting with him. You can hear Mick's words here: Interview w/Mick Roe by NewNoiseCork Cheers for checking it out!
Dario Argento's Suspiria (1977) terrified me as a teen and continues to do so. Its death scenes are violent, but tastefully done and its script is well crafted. This is a film that never ceases to entertain me. I would like to add that Argento's masterpiece is an example of how significant music is in cinema. The score, provided by Goblin augments the film's plot without making it predictable. Goblin performed the soundtrack to Supiria at Supersonic '09 (Capsule, Birmingham) and I was lucky enough to be there for it. Needless to say it was an unforgettable experience! Suspiria, one of my favorite films of all time and undoubtedly my all time favorite horror film.
The Richter Collective announced today that Marvin's Revolt have called it a day. This comes as quite a shock considering they recently released their new album Patrolling the Heights. Then January saw them on tour in Japan, and this was organised by Parabolica (Label/Tour Organisers-Japan).
It's disappointing news to say the least, but the saying quit while you're ahead comes to mind. I interviewed Marvin's Revolt back in December following their Cork launch and they were enthusiastic, polite and professional. It was a pleasure.
Hopefully this won't be the last we hear from the boys in Marvin's Revolt.
