The Disconnects/Crazy & The Brains: Are On The Other Side

I’ve been loudly singing (and, okay, in some instances, shouting) The Disconnects’ praises since around December of 2010. Coming to us from Neptune—the city, not the planet—The Disconnects are a straightforward, unrelenting punk rock ‘n’ roll machine. Their debut record, The Disconnects…Are Healthy, was an Aquarian ‘Disc Of The …

Interview with Justin Warfield from She Wants Revenge: Take The World

“Tear You Apart,” the second single off of the self-titled debut record by California darkwave-branded band She Wants Revenge was released in 2006, bringing a little smart smut to the airwaves and a delicious post-punk revival to the masses. The band’s genre is often disputed. Technically, it could be considered …

Interview with Those Mockingbirds: No One’s Laughing

Musicians of the world, please take note: If you think you don’t need to work hard because your hair is pretty and your jeans are skin tight, you are wrong. If you believe that because you can play an instrument semi-decently you don’t really need people skills, you are wrong. …

Interview with Chris #2 from Anti-Flag: What Are We Going To Do About The USA.?

Hard times. Economic crisis. Instability. Bailouts. High unemployment. People without adequate funds for survival, without health insurance.

Interview with Ian McCulloch from Echo & The Bunnymen: Everlasting Neverendless

When conducting interviews, I always try to be as professional as possible. If I happen to be a super fan, I try hard not to show it. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t absolutely shaking in my Doc Martens, waiting while the phone rang. I saw the …

Interview with Geoff Rickly from Thursday: Open Quotes

Of all the bands to break out of the New Brunswick scene, I have never been able to escape Thursday. Their music dug its way very deep into my ears at a very young age; blasting from behind the closed doors of friends’ older siblings’ rooms and then, when I …

Interview with Kyle Burns from Forever The Sickest Kids: It’s Not Terminal

I’m usually awkward as all hell on the phone, but Forever The Sickest Kids drummer Kyle Burns called me for his interview from a Walgreens while picking up laxatives, so I’m pretty sure he won this time around. “Yeah dude, I’ve been backed up for three days!” I was afraid …

Interview with Cameron Leahy from The Downtown Fiction: In The Moment

Lead vocalist/guitarist Cameron Leahy and drummer Eric Jones formed The Downtown Fiction in Summer of 2008, and brought bassist/vocalist David Pavluk into the mix shortly thereafter. In the three years or so since then, they’ve been incredibly successful, achieving more than bands who’d been together much longer. The release of …
