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 […]

Faith in your Guts: The spontaneity, honesty and naivety of Jade Imagine

Faith in your Guts: The spontaneity, honesty and naivety of Jade Imagine

Jade McInally has had since January to make a call on the design of her tour poster, a decision that needs to be made today. “I’m a last-minute girl” she admits, sat within the mid-afternoon rush of a Melbourne cafe, “but I need deadlines, I need them to impose themselves on my life”. Admitting things […]

“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 […]

“I Just Want To Stay Excited”: An Interview with the Goon Sax

“I Just Want To Stay Excited”: An Interview with the Goon Sax

By Hayley Scott. “I want people to think about me”, sings a wistful Louis Forster on the title track of The Goon Sax’s candidly self-deprecating LP, Up To Anything. The album deals in subjects that pertain to certain kind of world-weary adolescence that’s never cynical nor maudlin. Instead, it’s presented with a wide-eyed excitement that […]

“Never kiss a Tory”: An interview with Peaness

I’ve just started a zine called Mother’s Pride. It’s a riot grrrl feminist underground punk zine whose manifesto includes inspiring and supporting women to pick up guitars and sing and scream. The first interview for the zine is with local band Peaness. I get to the pancake shop early with a tripod to set up […]

It is Wednesday morning and I am in the same country as Hinds. From Oxford I am skyping with Carlotta, who is in a non-specific hotel in Birmingham. A small room with white walls. Carlotta looks tired, but happy nonetheless, ready for the next gig in Bristol. I tell Carlotta I’ve already missed two of […]

Photo by Hannah Golightly. Transcribed by Hannah Golightly and Lee Adcock I’ve been ill in bed off and on for weeks and I had to be given a lift to the train station which is a ten minute walk from my house, but illness was not going to stop me from interviewing Manchester band of […]
