David Yow

In the new issue of Billboard magazine (June 8, 2013), I interviewed the very charming and unpredictable David Yow about his solo debut album Tonight You Look Like a Spider on Joyful Noise records, which completely sold out of limited-edition pre-orders.  The pull quote includes the phrase “screaming boner,” a first in Billboard history.  You should get this issue.

The fine folks at Red Flag Media currently publish Decibel and Magnet, and used to publish Cowbell and in-store magazines that were nationally distributed via independent record stores.  I did (and continue to do) a fair amount of cover stories, features, album reviews and Q+As for RFM. Unfortunately, not all of it is available online—Decibel is print-only—but here’s a decent archive.

Shirley Manson

I interviewed Shirley twice in 2012. There’s no single human being in modern rock who is more aware, outspoken, and fearless than this lady. She’s also hilarious. I first got the assignment from SPIN, but the mag ran a print piece that kicked my Q&A to the curb. So a friend hosted the interview on her site. Unfortunately, that site is no longer up and running. After the jump, there’s the transcription. No frills, just like Ms. Manson — who liked the interview, by the way.
