Episode Twelve – Say Lou Lou

“There’s always a bit of Bergman when we do anything. Especially because with us being two women, the visual placements of faces together are so Bergman, how he structurally and visually put people in relation to each other…His depiction of women in film is so real, so true.”

Episode Eleven – Fightmilk

Alex: Tell me that riff doesn’t rule.
Lily: It does rule. But it came from a place of grumpy, instead of a place of love. And it should’ve come from a place of…lumpy.

Episode Ten – Typex

“Crumb never met up with Andy Warhol or The Velvet Underground as far as I know. But I put him in the story anyway. Cause he’s very important for the way we see a lot of the 60’s, especially the underground. He changed the vision. Our vision of the 60’s is formed by Robert Crumb and other artists, I think, as well as the way we see the 80’s is informed by the drawings of Tom Of Finland.”

Aug Stone talks to Dutch artist Typex about his dazzling new book andy: A Factual Fairytale The Life And Times of Andy Warhol which tells Warhol’s life story in ten parts, each section drawn in the style of the time period it deals with, his extensive research on the book, falling in love with music and comics, drawing comix reviews of concerts, Robert Crumb, Harvey Kurtzman and MAD magazine, Guy Peellaert, and much more.

Episode Nine – Even As We Speak

“I was on the train to work listening to Camper Van Beethoven, thinking what’s gonna be a good direction. In particular, I was listening to the way they were using a lot of different instrumentation, and from that it occurred to me that we really need to stop having a style, stop looking for a sound or a direction, and just do everything. And do it in a very spontaneous way. The idea was to have no real filters on what we were doing, so there’s really no editing on Feral Pop Frenzy. Everything that came into our heads, we’d do it. It’s a record that was ahead of its time in a lot of ways, but at its heart it’s still pop music. It’s the creative process without being limited by what you think you should or shouldn’t do.” – Matt Love, Even As We Speak

 

Aug Stone talks to Australian POP legends Even As We Speak about creative freedom, America, rock masses, John Peel, their time with such luminous indie labels as Phantom Records, Sarah Records and now Emotional Response, their summer 2018 tour, and much more.
