Here's a quick interview I did with Steve Turner (left) and Mark Arm (right) of the rock n' roll band Mudhoney before they played a show @ the El Rey Theatre in Hollywood on November 14th, 2008. Mudhoney has been one of my favorite bands now for about 15 years and just like fine wine, they get better (and funnier) with age. The best part was not only did Mark and Steve make me laugh and let me ask em a bunch of dumb questions about their band, newest record "The Lucky Ones" (on Sub Pop), hot 60 year olds, "Manzilians", moving on and how bad texting sucks, but I also got to DJ in between bands (Japanese Motors and Model/Actress also played). Can someone please explain to me why it's so fun to simply play "Sex Bomb" by Flipper and "Dehumanized" by Void really loud through a PA? Mudhoney opened the show with "The Money Will Roll Right In", as usual kicked some serious ass and for about an hour or so there it felt like everything was ok (and it was 1991 again). A big thank you goes out to Bill McShane for once again making my shitty camera work look a little more presentable with his fancy editing work. The dude is good like that I tell ya. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the interview - stream or download it below.
