I primi che però abbiamo beccato a Groningen sono gli M+A. Con i quali parliamo molto di estero, tra l’altro, e del clima (non della pioggia) che si respirava a Groningen.

Con loro chiudiamo questa piccola carrellata di italiani che hanno pubblicato un disco non recente ma con cui abbiamo parlato di un po’ di tutto.

In un angolo di Groningen abbiamo incontrato i C+C Maxigross, e scambiato due chiacchiere in quanto plotone presente di italiani (non così pochi, non così tanti) nelle terre basse. Arriviamo dopo tutti, ma arriviamo facendolo all’estero: veh la differenza.

Abbiamo fatto due chiacchiere telefoniche (perdonate la qualità) con Alessandro Ferri dei Soviet Soviet. L’album è uscito da un po’, ma le cose da dire sono sempre molte…

Me + Russel and Gordon from Bloc Party :)Ok, my interview confirmation said: you have an interview with Kele. I’ve studied for an interview based on the lead singer and guitarrist and when I arrived at venue the tour manager said that Gordon was ready to chat with me.

So this interview it’s 80% improvvisation!

Gordon Moakes is the bassist of the english group Bloc Party.

Bloc Party are a British indie rock band, composed of Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Russell Lissack (lead guitar), Gordon Moakes (bass guitar, synths, backing vocals, glockenspiel), and Matt Tong (drums, backing vocals). Their brand of music is said to have been drawn from such bands as The Cure,Mogwai, Siouxsie and the Banshees. The band was formed at the 1999 Reading Festival by Okereke and Lissack. They went through a variety of names before settling on Bloc Party in 2003. Moakes joined the band after answering an advert in NME magazine, while Tong was picked via an audition. Bloc Party got their break by giving BBC Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq and Franz Ferdinand’s lead singer, Alex Kapranos, a copy of their demo “She’s Hearing Voices”. In February 2005, the band released their debut album Silent Alarm. It was critically acclaimed and was named ‘Indie Album of the Year’ at the 2006 PLUG Awards and NME Album of the year which both honour indie music. That year, the record was also certified platinum in Britain. The band built on this success in 2007 with the release of their second studio album, A Weekend in the City, which reached a peak of number two in the UK Albums Chart and number twelve in the Billboard 200. In August 2008, Bloc Party released their third studio record, Intimacy. The band went on a hiatus in October 2009 to focus on side projects, and reunited in September 2011, releasing their fourth album, Four, in 2012. As of May 2012, Bloc Party have sold two million albums worldwide.

Me + Justin + Freddie (from Vaccines)Vaccines!

We saw them in Italy in September near Verona, and on the 28th September they were in a promo-day in Milan. So we had a chat with Justin and Freddie from the Vaccines after the cancelled interview from Frequency Festival 2011 due Justin vocal chords illness… So only more than a year to catch them! ;)

The Vaccines are an English indie rock band who formed in West London in 2010. The band’s debut album, What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?, was released through Columbia Records on 14 March 2011 and reached number 4 in the UK Album Chart. They drew comparisons to Ramones, The Strokes and The Jesus And Mary Chain. The band, however, has spoken of influences ranging from “‘50s rock ‘n’ roll to 80s American hardcore and good pop music”. They have opened for The Walkmen, The Stone Roses, Arctic Monkeys, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Arcade Fire. Their second studio album Come of Age was released in the UK on 3 September 2012.

Maximo Park interviewBetween the annoying sound of the air-condisomething in the backstage of Magazzini Generali in Milan and the soundchecking of Animal Kingdom we (I) interviewed last Monday Paul Smith from Maximo Park.

Paul is lovely to interview: he talks a lot. I had lots of question but only 10 minutes. So it’s only a short unformal chatting…

It’s nice the last part of interview about twitter, check it out ;)

[and hooray for me: I’ve always missed their show for lots of things and now I’ve seen them! So cool]
