This week: recent addition to the BAS family Anna Kunz talks to indie rock legend Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion, Sebadoh, Sentridoh, and his own solo work) about the creative process, his music, and other exciting stuff. Lou recently released a spectacular new album out Goodnight Unknown. Richard will kick himself for a long time that he wasn’t there for this interview. Bad at Sports congratulates the Barlow family on the addition of a recent bundle of joy! The baby thing is catching kids, watch out. Before you realize it everyone you know will have a couple ankle biters running around.
Clipped from Wikipedia, and redundant:
Lou Barlow is an American alternative rock singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
A founding member of the groups Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh and The Folk Implosion, Barlow is credited with helping to pioneer the lo-fi style of rock music in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Barlow was born in Dayton, Ohio and was raised in Jackson, Michigan and Westfield, Massachusetts. Read more
Duncan talks to the crew from Bridge about the impending Miami madness. Newly knighted European bureau chief Mark Staff Brandl talks lots of shows across the pond. Mike Benedetto talks Kurosawa’s Rahomom. Brian Andrews on Portland.
Wow! That’s a whole lotta show.
Thanks to Mr. Moon for helping out with the intro.
We need an audio intern. E-mail us if you have a clue, and don’t mind somewhat dull technical work. Lots of gory, oh, my friend there is lots of glory. No money.
ALSO: BAS has an APB out for Phil Berkman. If anyone out there knows Phil Berkman we are trying to get ahold of him…
