this is the news

17th Feb 2014

Last year I interviewed some amazing musicians for my 80s book and beyond, here is the link and order. Click on the links to read the interviews.

  1. TANKARD
  2. MUDHONEY
  3. SWANS
  4. FISH (MARILLION)
  5. ACID REIGN
  6. DAVID GRUBBS (SQUIRREL BAIT)
  7. MEAT PUPPETS
  8. BOB MOULD (HUSKER DU)
  9. POLTEGEIST / ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN
  10. QUEENSRYCHE
  11. THALIA ZEDECK (COME / UZI / LIVE SKULL)
  12. MISSION OF BURMA
  13. GEOFF DOWNES (ASIA / YES / THE BUGGLES)
  14. GRANT HART (HUSKER DU)
  15. CRASS
  16. STEVE HACKET (GENESIS)
  17. JOHN ROBB (GOLDBLADE / THE MEMBRANES)

That’s quite a list I am sure you will agree. A few I would have loved to do fell through including Jane’s Addiction and Suicidal Tendencies. There is a lot of bright days ahead on the horizon though. Stay punk and watch SWANS.

  6. i hear u attended an acoustic ocean colour scene event recently how was that ??

  7. why do Maths remind me of early Standstill so much? You missed an awesome practice room show last night. Catheter were so good. I danced like a loon. There was a 6 man human pyramid…twice! in the crowd. Either way i look forward to your Dillinger review dude.

  8. yeah i should have gone really, dan had sunburn and didnt wanna go and i was feelin knackered from the hop farm fest so i gave it a miss. sounds pretty cool though. Glad you had a good one.

  9. I want to read all your 1980s reviews!

  10. i love this. so much to read!
    The other thing i like about this is that i discovered that we both have a common home town

  11. I like the Han Vs Dan thing, thats awsome, you should do more.

  12. ‘There is also the jealousy factor where I wish it was me putting the thing on and/or playing as I do miss those days of being in a band and being a promoter from time to time but today I would rather be writing about them than doing them so I have chosen my own lot in life and am pretty good at my vocation if I say so myself.’

    Irony.

  13. Like your blog! Good calls on the albums of the year. I had a crack at it myself …
