I got to interview Priests (who’ll be playing Valley Bar tonight) for the Phoenix New Times. It was a fascinating interview, and one that I looked forward to- their new album, “Nothing Feels Natural”, is an astonishing piece of music.

My latest piece for the Phoenix New Times: I got a chance to interview the authors of one of my all-time favorite books, “Please Kill Me.” It took GREAT restraint on my part not to spazz out like a geek during the whole time we were talking.

Phoenix has got a lot going for it. Plenty of wonderful weirdness to lose yourself in, if you can scratch past the surface. For starters- we’ve got a weekly alien rock’n’roll radio program! I did an interview and profile of the “Aliens With Gass” show for Phoenix New Times. Click the link and check it out!

My first piece for Spiral Nature in quite awhile (my first since writing this review a few years back). I had the pleasure of interviewing filmmaker Anna Biller about the occult influences and background behind her bewitching movie “The Love Witch”.

I had the pleasure of interviewing local artist James B. Hunt (whose Nxoeed blog is required reading for anyone living in AZ) for PHX SUX. Click the link to read (it’s one of my favorite interviews- dude was dropping fascinating tidbits left and right).

Here’s an interview I did recently with Fang frontman Sam McBride for the Phoenix New Times. Fang are playing a VD show at Rips Bar, so if you’re in town and you’ve got no plans with your honey, that’s one good way to spend the 14th.
