The Collapse Board Interview: Barry Burns (Mogwai)

The Collapse Board Interview: Barry Burns (Mogwai)

Taking time out from rehearsals for a live TV performance – “I can’t tell you what the program is as we’ve signed a form that says we can’t tell anyone” – Collapse Board talks to Mogwai’s Barry Burns about the band’s latest album, the score to the sci-fi/crime drama, KIN, and some of the other soundtracks they have been involved in.

Looking back at growing up in the UK in the 1970s and talking about it with others who went through it, there’s a sense of a shared generational trauma, one that was beamed straight into your lounge room every day through the TV.  From watching Doctor Who from behind the sofa, to creepy TV show […]

The Collapse Board Interview: Pete Oxley (Sunnyboys)

The other day I read a feature article about one of my all time favourite bands, The Jam – their individual style and musicianship, their rapid rise and premature break up, the precocious genius of frontman, Paul Weller, and the enduring love their fans still hold 40 years later. It made me contemplate the similar […]

The Collapse Board Interview: The Stems’ Dom Mariani

The Collapse Board Interview: The Stems’ Dom Mariani

The ’80s were a decade defined by its sense of materialism and elitism. Capturing the zeitgeist music responded in kind with glitzy new wave, arena rock and synthetic pop dominating the airwaves. But as the raw sounds of the punk movement were petering out, evolving or sliding back into obscurity, a new generation of artists […]

“It’s not pastiche. I think people can tell the difference”: An Interview with The Allah-Las’ Miles Michaud

“It’s not pastiche. I think people can tell the difference”: An Interview with The Allah-Las’ Miles Michaud

There’s an undeniable crate-digging obsession driving LA’s The Allah-Las. A quartet of self-confessed record junkies, the group overlay a gentle melancholy upon a core amalgam of R&B and gut punching garage psych. Yet far from simply venerating the acid-dazed brilliance of the ‘60s, there are also touches of bubblegum pop, surf, country and later revivalist […]
