Little Barrie main man and Primal Scream live guitarist Barrie Cadogan on the simple domestic life led by family man Bobby Gillespie… 

“I moved to a part of north London where Bobby lives and we bumped into each other quite a lot; he’d be out taking his son to playgroup in the morning or just going out for a coffee… He left a CD of new songs under his dustbin because he’d gone away for the weekend so I took them home and had a rehearsal with them the following week.”

Japanese Voyeurs keyboardist Rikki Waldron on the origin of his band’s name… 

“Our friend in Japan was at a park and he saw these couples having sex at night time and there were people in the bushes looking at them, so he took photos of it and made it into an exhibition called Japanese Voyeurs. We found that quite fun.”

Buck 65 on Bob Dylan’s rapping grandson Pablo… 

“I’ve said before that I’d be up for collaborating with anyone under the sun, but I might have to draw the line there. I find that situation to be very painful.”

Neil Bassett, one half of Hyde & Beast, on gluing feathers to a bass drum to create their dazzling album cover…

“In an unventilated room. An interesting afternoon. We drank gin. Gin and glue don’t mix!”

Tim Walsh from The Stepkids on the impact of scrambled porn from the ‘70s on his band’s overall sound…

“My dad had Showtime on the TV upstairs but, on the one downstairs, the picture was scrambled. Sometimes the picture would scramble with mad psychedelia and then, in one corner, you’d see an arm and be like, ‘Woah! What is that? Ah no, that’s just an arm.’ Hearing those sounds and thinking you’re seeing something but the whole picture’s madly psychedelic because the channel’s not quite in…I think, subconsciously, that must be where some of the influences came from.”

Ra Ra Riot bassist gone solo Mathieu Santos on his predilection for abrupt song endings… 

“Though really abrupt endings can seem like an easy out, to me, they are so so powerful – they’re really unnerving and frightening. They just leave everything hanging there, with no real conclusions – the songs are here, and then they’re gone, and you haven’t had time to prepare for the ending, to expect it. That’s really exciting to me! I think it forces you to give something back emotionally, where you find yourself having to fill the space.”

Ladytron singer Helen Marnie on her band being lumped in with the ‘electroclash’ movement during their early days… 

“We were always lumped in with bands we sounded nothing like and often didn’t have much in common with. That was what made us uncomfortable. For that reason, we just tried to avoid any connection with the term. Our sound is never reactionary to outside elements, it’s always natural and down to experiences.”

Former Grandaddy and current Modest Mouse guitarist/All Smiles main man Jim Fairchild on the twisted thinking still prevalent amongst the powers that be in the music industry…

“Someone from the radio department at V2 decided that it would be a fucking great idea to edit ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot’ down from nearly nine minutes into a three-minute radio version. I don’t even know how the fuck you would do that – that song is a nine-minute song, that’s what it is. You could take a song like ‘The Crystal Lake’ and abbreviate the guitar melody on the outro and it’s still basically the same song, but that’s a nine-minute song so we got really pissed off with them about that. There was always some bullshit happening… Who knows what sort of weird alchemy is occurring in people’s heads that they think they’ll be able to get a little extra juice out of? That need to always be making shit bigger can paralyse bands and businesses.”

CSS guitar/harmonica player Ana Rezende on whether or not CSS could design a logo for Rocksucker… 

“We’ll get back to you on that.”

Louise Burns on Anthony Kiedis ‘checking out’ her former bandmates… 

“He definitely gave a good solid check out to two other girls in Lillix in a restaurant one time. That was pretty interesting. I don’t think I’m Anthony’s type. Bummer.”

Drugstore leader Isabel Monteiro on relieving a drummer of his duties for reading The Sun (quite rightly too, if you ask Rocksucker)… 

“It wasn’t just to do with the newspaper, it was what was behind that – we’re going to have so many differences between us that inevitably those differences are going to come to the surface. So yeah, that’s true, and why not? It’s such an intense thing, being in a band – you spend so much time together so finding people you’re going to like as people is very important as well.”

PAPA singer Darren Weiss on what being the Lion King involves on a day-to-day basis… 

“Psychosis, explosivity, Tina Turner.”

Death Songs main man Nick Delffs on who he’s posing with in this picture… 

Death Songs

“My homies. Friends of mine. I want people to think that they are my band, and they want people to think that they are in my band. Maybe they will be my band. I just don’t know if I would have a whole lot of time to practice with them.”

WATERS main man Van Pierszalowski on why his band’s name is capitalised…

“I just like the way it looks more. The capital W and the capital A look beautiful, I think. WA – much better than Wa. Anyway, also, I wanted to do anything to make it look a little different than Roger Waters, or Muddy Waters.”

Silver Apples main man Simeon Coxe III on people thinking his band were mad… 

“Danny and I never could figure out why people thought we were so strange. To us, it was music, plain and simple, no matter how it was created.”
