An Interview with Matt Lowell (Lo Moon)

For some reason I recently had Beatles on the brain, specifically the early years of their madness-inducing mop tops. I started to think about those early interviews of theirs, and then started to look up some of those early pressers. I was taken aback by just how many times the foursome was asked about money and marriage, but there were some gems amongst the clunkers. And so, inspired by the early press conferences of the Beatles, I decided to ask some of those very same questions.

If you’re not there yet, you’ve still got time to hop on the Lo ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the Third)

To recap, we head into the third installment of the interview with Paul Draper having talked about his debut record Spooky Action, hatching a plan for conquering America, Six‘s impending 20th anniversary, Mansun conventions and cover bands, and a bit more besides. 

But wait, there’s more.

The importance of good fan relations (and Alsatians)? Yes. Things that are currently lighting up Draper’s Spotify playlist? Of course. Some of his choices may well surprise you. A Mansun biopic? Why not? 

This was probably the silliest bit of our lengthy conversation, and I confess to having edited out some of the ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the Second)

When we left off, Paul Draper was detailing his plan for certain American domination by way of playing “Wide Open Space” all over the country until the US of A waved the white flag and relented enough to rerelease debut Mansun record Attack of The Grey Lantern. This after also letting me in on his, ahem, chart battle royale with actress/pop singer Martine McCutcheon.

So what’s next, you’re wondering? Plenty. Read on to see how Draper plans on celebrating a rather special upcoming anniversary, and for his take on all things Mansun Con.  


And there’s still more ...

An Interview With Paul Draper (Part the First)

It was a somewhat sunny afternoon in late September when I sat down with Paul Draper at an undisclosed location (i.e. a pub) somewhere deep in the well-heeled, flyover London suburbs. Draper, fresh off a successful short run of live dates in support of his solo record and a birthday just a couple days earlier, was in fine form. He’s come a long way since his days at the helm of captivating anti-Britpop band Mansun, a too-brief ride that hit critical highs (and lows) and ended with a rather acrimonious split. Draper’s return to performing his own material has made ...

Pianist Leif Ove Andsnes and the New York Philharmonic Think Outside the Box

Source: New York Music Daily

It’s almost twenty years to the day that virtuoso Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes made his debut with the New York Philharmonic. In another stroke of fate, he was playing a Rachmaninoff concerto, with a Scandinavian conductor on the podium, just as he will during his first stand as artist-in-residence with the orchestra, which starts tonight at 7:30 PM, featuring Rachmaninoff’s relatively rarely programmed Piano Concerto No. 4 and Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony.

In conversation with the Philharmonic’s Isaac Thompson at Lincoln Center last night, Andsnes revealed that he’s played New York more than any other city in the ...
