Deep Purple does not inspire us, but Placebo – yes! Interview with Jack Action

“Rising of a supernova” – this is the translation of the name of the new album of Jack Action, which has become not only new, but also prophetic.

Dave Grohl: “If the song dedicated to your ass comes first, this is a clear problem”

After nearly thirty years of rock and roll, Dave Grohl is still playing real rock, making films and television shows, and trying, according to him, “not to seem like a boring old fart.” This exclusive interview proves: he succeeds.

Dave Grohl became famous throughout the world in the 1990s as the drummer of the Nirvana band, and has since remained a star. He soloists with Foo Fighters (eight albums, 11 million copies sold, many awards and spectacular world tours), and works on musical projects, including with David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age. Last year, he released his first film, “Sound City,” a documentary about a music studio of the same name in Los Angeles.

Now he has launched “Sonic Highways”: an ambitious project to merge the eighth album, released in November, Foo Fighters, with an eight-part television series. In it, Grohl shows how the group recorded the album in studios across America and talks with musicians associated with these studios, including Dolly Parton, Joe Walsh, Chuck D, Willy Nelson and Rick Rubin. He also has a little conversation with Barack Obama. In a recent conversation with The Red Bulletin, the 45-year-old musician does not ask questions, but answers them. Continue reading

Nick Cave: The Dark Knight’s Revival

In honor of the thirtieth anniversary of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ debut album “From Her To Eternity”, the NME editors decided to recall an interview with Nick Cave, published by the magazine in 1984, during the beautiful and chaotic period following the breakup of his band The Birthday Party.

When Nick Cave created his image at the very beginning of the existence of The Birthday Party, he resembled a woman with tuberculosis from an absurd birthday described in Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, sitting in a corner coughing into a handkerchief and showing bloody spots of the assembled company. He was a disgusting exhibitionist, constantly demanding attention. Subsequently, this image was transformed into a slowly and painfully moving snail, turning its own mucus into art. Continue reading
