The list is insanely long! Sadly, fLiPSiDE went defunct back in due to financial problems, but the memories of those days will always live on in the minds and hearts of the underground scene. In chronological order, here are my all-time favorite interviews that I did with bands and musicians during my time writing for fLiPSiDE Fanzine :. I was lucky enough to be working at Caroline Records Distribution in Sun Valley as a sales representative, and the Smashing Pumpkins came into the office to meet our staff that fateful day Aug.
I ended up going to see them play at English Acid which was located at the Peanuts club on Santa Monica Boulevard and interviewed both Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin prior to their set at the club. Their debut album, Gish , had been released three months earlier on Caroline Records and both Billy and Jimmy C were extremely weary of L. They were very aware that the album's sales would possibly begin to fall and they were not expecting the sort of success, at the time, that they eventually got.
By the way, not only do I still have this interview on tape but I also taped the Pumpkins soundcheck that evening. She really wanted to sign us! All of a sudden she wants to find out about the underground and I'm like, should I even turn her on to shit? Hole's second album and first on DGC Records was released on April 12, , barely a week after Kurt Cobain's death, and it sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
Demento would play My Name Is Larry over and over on his radio show on Instead of having to go through the normal channels of going to the publicity department of DGC Records, Courtney just told me to just call their home number in the Fairfax district. When Al and I did, Kurt was not happy. We apologized to him and started the interview and I will never, ever forget this exchange between Al and Kurt:. What's it like? How did you do it?
Kurt couldn't stand the idea of being compared in the press to other bands like Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam, since they didn't at all sound like Nirvana:. It's my favorite interview that I have ever done. The greatest drummer in Los Angeles. She was in the original Red Kross. Janet didn't know what to say and just smiled back. I also remember walking both Kurt and Courtney into the backstage area.
This was over a year before they actually did MTV Unplugged. I still get chills thinking about that moment. The Butthole Surfers are one of my favorite bands of all time, and I had the absolute insane pleasure of interviewing them a total of three times since Jeffrey Pinkus bassist extraordinaire of the Buttholes picks me up at the airport driving a late-'60s Mustang with horns on the top and we listen to Rush Limbaugh on the way to the band's recording and practice studio which they had been sharing with Ed Hall as Pinkus starts to constantly crack up at everything that Limbaugh is saying.
I am seriously momentarily star-struck and then we start the interview and the ganja starts a-flowin'! Let's just say that the interview was intense. Those are every single one of our practices since ! From what I remember, there were over unreleased studio tracks that the Buttholes had recorded up to that point. I kept thinking it was going to be this short bald guy who looked like Danny DeVito! Osaka, Japan's Boredoms! Let me tell you about this band and how they blew away audiences with their intense, surrealist and out-of-this-world live sets.
The night before, in Hollywood, Matt Groening introduced himself to the band backstage and told them how much he liked their music. The next day Boredoms were playing at Spanky's in Riverside on May 17, After their intense set, I got to interview the band with help from Don Bolles who kept correcting me on my knowledge of Boredoms' released record catalog and Duke who was happily translating Boredoms' absurd and hilarious lyrics during the set and then helped in translating the interview from English to Japanese for me!
It's like their lyrics make no sense at all in Japanese! They're singing about having electric teeth, I think! Hate rock. I like the Shaggs. Mark E. When we arrived, Shane's tape recorder died, so Mark was kind enough to lend us his for the interview. We had around 40 minutes to interview Mark as he started popping some medication into his mouth and drank some whiskey, so we got to asking him about prog-rock and conspiracy theories as we smoked a doobie.
A few minutes later he ends up patting us on the back like brothers and lets me take a photo of him. Even Mark E. Smith got star-struck! Another one of my favorite interviews took place at Canter's Deli after an incredible Melvins set at Raji's in Hollywood in late The interview started with band members of Sawed-Off accusing me of being stoned who?
Mackie, Buzz's wife, asks me if I had seen the band Plainfield and I told them that I wasn't really into them and boy oh boy, did that tickle some shoes and feathers and turn the interview into an absolute comedy routine, which included a small food fight.
Dayton, Ohio's Brainiac were one of the most incredible live bands I had ever seen. Timmy Taylor R. I listened to it and really enjoyed it and gave them a great review. They followed the demo with some incredible vinyl releases between and early On Sept. The band were in top form and played yet another insanely energetic set.
