Norman
Blake
from
Teenage Fanclub
on working with Tortoise’s John
McEntire: "he’d put down basic tracks and then say ‘come
in and have a listen’ – and then play it back really quietly!"


 


 


 



Jim
Gellatly
chatting with New
Order
: “I suppose with a band like New Order
it’s just a case of pressing a button and the album’s made?”
Hooky: "OOOOH, if you weren’t such a big lad I’d take you
outside and kick seven shades of shit out of you!"


Zak
from Low on the
gradual slowing down of theirlive set: “By the end of the
tour these songs would be just like water torture”


 


 


 



Alasdair
Roberts
on
his album of murder ballads: “I wanted to
make an album about death that wasn’t grim or gothic”


 


 


 


Luxury
Car
on dispensing with live percussion: “I
just got sick of having to lug a drum kit all over the place!”


 


 



 


Martin
Kielty on the Sensational
Alex Harvey Band
album Next
: “SAHB were opening the show at Reading … the

Velvet Revolver
at Glasgow Academy :"single ‘Slither’ is searing and gives
Slash another chance to let rip,a slight smile playing on his
lips – and why not…”
At The Delgados
show in Perth – Perth Australia that is  :the band "unleash
a captivating fourteen song/ two encore set of guitar driven pop
smash, filled to the back paddock in melodies, harmonies,
hooks and the odd unfortunate story…”
Slint curated
All Tomorrow’s Parties
:their
own live set “doesn’t really add anything
to the recorded versions, but then this carefully constructed
music doesn’t really lend itself to improvisation. Live,
these songs sound immense, and that’s enough for me. ”
