Welllll, we’re back. What we have here is one of the best interviews I’ve had the good fortune to be able to publish on Termbo, an intimate chat with Byron Coley, certainly a legend around the TB household and I’m sure you feel the same way if you’re here reading this. This interview was done by our friend Julien for our other friend Alex’s zine Psycho Disco. It appears in issue #3 which is available now, but the catch is that the zine is in French – so these guys were gracious enough to let us put out this translated version for all of us English speakers to enjoy. So thanks very much for that, go and get the zine here (it also has an article in it by yours truly, which is how I got involved with poaching this from them). Please enjoy and give some thought to some of the topics discussed here – as our world keeps rapidly changing while we speed further and further into the future, it’s easy to overlook how the things we love and take for granted are transforming. Music is the glue that holds this thing together, but how we find it, think about it, write about it, feel about it is constantly evolving – how we are (or aren’t) adapting to these shifts is something I think we all need to be more aware of. So, aside from being stoked to have this awesome interview up, I’m also buying another week to cram some more reviews in. We’ll see you shortly with those. Thank you.
Hello again. Our update this time features an interview with our Australian friend Owen Penglis, who you might know from Straight Arrows and/or from recording a good amount of other Australian bands recently. We talked to him a few years ago after the Arrows had completed their US tour, and here Ryan gets us up to date on Owen and the bands’ recent activity, including a new 7″ out now on Spacecase Records. In other news, those long awaited record reviews will be up next week (no I’m not stalling ehhhh….yes, I am) and we also have some more interviews ready to go, including a whopper of a Byron Coley chat and some more from the ever-busy Ryan. The 2017 Year End round-up is still warm, in case you missed it. And we’re running the ol’ TERMBO TELETHON for 2018 on the board if you’re interested. That’s it for now, we’ll talk again real soon.
