The Interview Post is now up, along with podcast audio.
Seems I’ve scored me an interview with the band Aberdeen City [aberdeenmusic] while they’re here in Vancouver as a part of their 2006 North American tour.I first heard about the band when I met John – who always plays great up and coming tunes on his podcast, Radiozoom. They had a self-produced, self-released EP in 2003, We Learned By Watching and 2 EPs & one LP in 2005. They then released The Freezing Atlantic in August, 2006 via their spankin new Sony Red Ink label deal.
The politically aware first single God Is Going To Get Sick of Me won a Boston Music Award in 2005 – before it had been commercially released- and The Freezing Atlantic was recently voted Local Album of 2006 by Boston Phoenix readers [aberdeenmusic.com]
Brad Parker (vocals, bass), Ryan Heller (guitar), Rob McCaffrey (drums) and Christopher McLaughlin (guitar, vocals) all came together in Boston (where I spent the good part of 2002-2003) and 3 of them are originally from the Mid-West. I actually lived on Aberdeen Ave in Cambridge but the band is named after the Aberdeen Architectural Conservation District of Boston (oh well).
I’m really looking forward to meeting them.The show is October 17th at Richards on Richards with Electric Six and The Blue Van, tickets are $17.50 and available at Ticketmaster, HOB.ca, Zulu and Scratch Records.More details about my interview to come, for now, please check out their website and myspace page for info and to sample their music.
