    New Model Army audio available

    by  • 5/23/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    I finally got decent audio recording on the server… had to compile a couple new programs and fiddle with the settings to pull clean audio off my tape. The WAV was sounding good, but was huge, and just wasn’t compressing into an MP3 well at all. That’s fixed, and I have a pair of MP3 […]

    New Model Army

    by  • 5/23/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    Interesting evening all around. Met with Justin Sullivan, and didn’t embarrass myself too much, outside of stumbling on the band’s name once. There’s something about seeing the Cobalt in the light with only a handful of people around… it’s kind of disturbing. If nothing else, I can attest to the fact that they actually do […]

    Fear Factory interview redux

    by  • 5/18/2004 • life, live music • 0 Comments

    Wow. There’s nothing like being over prepared for an interview. I had dozens of questions ready, different paths charted out, different approaches to take, and turned out that it mostly wasn’t needed. This was one of those dream interviews, where the interview subject and the interviewer get along well, and can just sit down and […]

    Interviewing Fear Factory tomorrow

    by  • 5/18/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    I hate going to interview a band without having heard their JUST RELEASED album. Do I ask them questions about what their 3rd album sounded like, when they may not sound anything like that now? Do I ask big, open ended questions like “What are you guys trying to say with this new album?” Lame […]

    Neubauten – Blixa Bargeld quotes

    by  • 5/9/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    Some quotes from the stage during the concert. I cribbed these from the Live CD I purchased at the event, so I missed the openning bit of dialogue and a couple other bits where Blixa talks about how the LiveCDs are probably over-priced and general touring stuff. I used these pieces in the concert review […]

    Pixies aftermath

    by  • 4/23/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    I read the Georgia Straight’s preview piece on the Pixies event on the way to the show; If you’re one of the many who missed out on Pixies tickets when they vanished within minutes of going on sale, you might want to think twice before draining your bank account to pay scalpers’ fees. It seems, […]

    UK Subs

    by  • 4/18/2004 • live music • 0 Comments

    Headed out for The Cobalt last night to see the UK Subs who were going to be finishing up their cross-Canada tour here. The shirts they were flogging were specifically printed for Vancouver, which I found at least passingly interesting; I don’t bother buying band shirts anymore. I arrived at the pub at 9:15, fully […]
