Pretty sure this is what big-shot writers refer to as a career highlight. I had the very enormous honor of interviewing the members of L7—Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Dee Plakas, and Jennifer Finch—about their 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy for Decibel’s Hall of Fame series. L7 is one of my all-time favorite bands, and Bricks Are Heavy is one of my all-time favorite albums. I sort of obsessed over this piece, even though L7 kinda did all the work. You can read my intro here, but to read the interviews—all 5,500 words of them—you need to order a copy of the November issue of Decibel. It’s worth it. I’ve read the piece dozens of times (literally), and I will return to it again and again for sheer inspiration.
