Aussitot Mort

Last year I got the chance to interview Antoine from Aussitot Mort, a band I’ve been excited about for a while now. Their new album Montuenga is an interesting mix of hardcore and post-rock, and one of last year’s most solid releases. Read the interview, and be sure to check out their MySpace page for some song samples.


Kool Keith

Keith as OckAfter filing my Kool Keith story for Monday Magazine I realized that the interview in itself was interesting and thought I’d post it here. He’s definitely done weirder  interviews, but this was tops in my book.  His management was pretty intent on keeping my time to a minimum, but I managed to keep Keith talking, which wasn’t overly hard. He was really nice and willing to talk, though he seemed to miss some of my questions completely. I’ve edited out some of the uninteresting bits, but basically the whole conversation is here.


Older Articles : Shellac, Cinematic Orchestra

I’m in the midst of getting a couple stories ready to upload. In the meantime, here are a couple articles I wrote for the now defunct (?) Chord Magazine. I’ll get some scans up when I get the time. For now, here’s my Shellac article and my Cinematic Orchestra article, both published in the June 2006 issue.


Rocking in the woods

My interview with French art-superstar-in-the-making McBess has just gone live on the Whitehot Magazine site. While my stuff is usually printed in the Vancouver section, you can check it out in here in the London section.

Also, check out my pieces on Winnipeg art factory The Royal Art Lodge and Victoria ink champion Eric Volet.



Ugh. It’s been a while since my first post, but now the holidays are over and things are slowly (slooowwly) getting back on track. My latest post concerns an interview with Masachusetts hardcore band Sinaloa that I conducted in early 2008. It’s been a long time in coming, and I’d like to thank Pete Zetlan and the rest of the band for granting me the interview and for being patient.

There’s lots more coming soon, I promise.


Center For Tactical Magic Interview

Here’s a conversation I had with  Aaron Gach of The Center For Tactical Magic about his perception of the role of magic, public art and myth-making in society, offering some fresh insight and deep thoughts about things a lot of people gloss over and take for granted on a daily basis.


At last, the sun…

This blog has been a long time coming, from my initial conception a year ago to my first completed interviews a couple months ago. Essentially, this is going to be a repository of my interviews and writing, both published and strictly for this site. Mostly I aim to shine light in corners that don’t get enough of it, giving quality coverage to whatever I see fit.
