Guitare Moderne interview

21.03.2017

A couple of weeks ago I had a wide-ranging conversation with Michael Ross, experimental guitarist and editor of the excellent Guitare Moderne. He’s written a lot of it up here.

Michael also posted some stuff from YouTube that I had no idea existed, including an early Amoral Avatar show in Russia and the entire Eno/Schwalm ‘Drawn From Life’ concert from 2002!

Brett Anderson, whose last two solo records I produced and co-wrote, has a solo career retrospective box-set out today as well – lots of bonus materials and it looks beautiful.

It’s been quite a while since the last update. I’ve finished 3 records since then – for Ghostpoet, Sam Amidon and Seamus Fogarty. All will hopefully come out over the next few months, and I’ll post videos and stuff here.

I helped out a teeny bit with the recording of the amazing Deep Throat Choir. I also helped out a teeny bit on the sessions for Bas Jan, which is Serafina Steer’s new project.

Lots coming up over the next few weeks, including a trip to Belgium to work on the second Oscar And The Wolf record at ICP Studios.

More soon…
