G. Love & Special Sauce | The Sweet Sound of Summer

To describe the band's one-of-a-kind sound, Dutton coined the term "hip-hop blues." This is a pretty accurate description for a guy who sounds like a cross between De la Soul and John Lee Hooker.

I never realized Thomas Dolby had produced Steve McQueen. Back then, I didn't care whose name was affixed to which release; all that mattered was the sound, the band, the way it made me feel.

   

Witch's Hat | Real Mastery

prof_witch_smThere's some stuff stayed basically the same; there's some stuff that got major overhauls; one song got entirely re-recorded ["Space Baby"]. We went back and just made it sound a lot better. It's a more representative product.

What I learned from Gene and Paul was that they experienced all of the ups and downs in the business so they knew how to protect the band and move forward and survive in a difficult industry. They were able to deal with the record company and people who did the tours in a very tough way, because they rightfully felt that no one knew their vision like they did.

 

   

The Black Angels | Politics and Psychedelia

Written by Glen Elkins Wednesday, 30 May 2007 07:49

prof_blackangels_smNate came up to us at a show one time in Austin and wondered if we needed a bass player and we said we didn't, so we sent him off. He came back to our show later that month and asked again and we said, "OK, you can come play bass with us." He actually recorded with us the next day.

 

 

 

 

 

The Academy Is... | Freshly Scrubbed

"There was a band called Alkaline Trio that was starting to do real well in Chicago, and they set kind of the tone of the new wave of whatever was going to come out of Chicago; that was a very important band for me. So I feel very proud and privileged I got to grow up in that particular part of the United States. I think it helped having all that music and culture around us."

   

Cobra Starship | Sent by Futuristic Reptiles to a Stage Near You

Written by Katie Herring Tuesday, 29 May 2007 02:14

prof_cobra_smAccording to their bio, a major mission passed down to the band by the cobra is to "teach hipsters to not take themselves so seriously and to tell emo kids to stop being pussies." When asked how that was going, both Blackinton and Suarez laughed.

The size of it really doesn't matter. What matters is if people come looking for fun or not. You can play big gigs that are horrible and you can play small gigs that are horrible, and vice versa.

 

   

Ricky Wilson and the Kaiser Chiefs | Mob Mentality and Fashion

It's all lies. It's that kind of lynch-mob mentality that always wants someone's head to roll—that's the angry mob. And, to be honest, it just sounded really cool."

 

 

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club | Creating Space

Written by Dave Jasmon Sunday, 15 April 2007 14:01

baby81We got into music to change the world, you know? To change everything. And we're still of that opinion, but you can't really force that upon anybody, that thought. We're just trying to figure out what's best for us, and what's best for us is to live in the world the way we want to live, the best we can, and let everyone else breathe.

 

 

   

IAMX | Unhindered

profile_iamx_sm"Because I spend so much time making music, I'd much rather watch some sort of art films or go see some architecture or other kind of cultural stuff that doesn't really relate to what I do."

 

 

 

 

The Day After | Love-O-Rama and a Hope for Valentines

Sunday, 08 April 2007 10:25

love2"The show," Loveless added, "encourages audience members to question everything, think for themselves, fuck the media, and create what they want."

"I guess I'm inescapably a product of the Midwest," he says. "There's an element of wanting to write about what you know about. St. Louis just has a character and a history that interests me and, also, is familiar with me."

We're ex-art students. We're not selling enough records to make a living. We're not on the radio, so OK, give us money and exposure.

 

   

P.O.S. Will Knock You On Your Ass

...when you deliver a song you want that song to have a clean, cohesive package, and these days, for me anyway, I like the idea of having a clean, cohesive album. Too much combination could take away from the album, make the album feel more like a compilation, you know? It's just a matter of figuring out the right way to do it.

Fighting in a Blown-Up Paper Sack with Dave Hernandez of the Shins
"There's a contrast between the negative lyrics and, like, chirpy birds and rainbows and sparkles. I think that's more of a menacing outlook than watching something really, really horribly depressing or listening to some really, really negative stuff that sounds like the devil. It's something more vicious."
