CHANTEL McGREGOR (Interview)

CHANTEL McGREGOR (Interview)

Introduction There are a couple of things you notice when chatting with Chantel McGregor; the first being that she is very honest and open and secondly she laughs a lot. Full of life and utterly charming, it was a treat to have a little time with her. We chatted in the stairwell of the flat above the venue (Bannerman’s Bar in Edinburgh before her show that night). I have tried to capture all she said…

They suggested doing the interview in the actual gig hall before the doors…

HELION PRIME – Interview with Jason Ashcraft (Interview)

As AFM Records‘ very own Helion Prime have the imminent release of their sophomore album, Terror of the Cybernetic Monster (check out the Decibel Geek review here), we were lucky enough to pin down band leader/founding member/guitarist Jason Ashcraft to quiz him on the album, line-up changes and influences. Decibel Geek: Your music is based on ‘science fact’, what first triggered your interest in science? Jason Ashcraft: I have always showed an interest in science and primarily with space, but my peek interest began in my…

THE GANG – Email Interview

THE GANG – Email Interview

I’m here to tell you all a little story. Back a few months ago I found a gem of an album. It was basically swamped under the massive digital flow that hits my email inbox from record labels and promo companies from around the world. It can be overwhelmingly oppressive at times, that’s for sure. I try to listen (or at least sample) to as much of it as possible. Knowing nothing aside from the…

Radio Sucks Radio Show v32 – Ep312

We’re back this week with more killer rock tracks and talk with Radio Sucks Radio Show v32! If you are new to the podcast, this particular format is easy to explain. Radio sucks and has for a long time. The limited amount of artists coupled with the limited amount of songs by those artists makes radio a frustrating experience. Additionally, the ignorance of new material by classic artists makes no sense at all. Do we…
