INTERVIEW: Dave Rowntree (Parts 1 & 2)

Post by tom_cas1 » 18 Apr 2015, 13:18

I mentioned a few days ago that I had something special lined up, and this is it. I had the pleasure of interviewing Dave recently and we spoke about a number of things. Obviously The Magic Whip was brought up but the interview covers topics from the Bill Laswell sessions, 2005 Blur "EP", The Ailerons and a few more things. Enjoy! :D

Good stuff! I'm assuming the second part mainly concerns the album's content?

Great work, Tom!!! Dave's point of view about the 2005 EP is very interesting, he didn't even mention a word about Subspieces, so it really seems they weren't into it at all, it must have not sounded that memorable! As munch said: great questions! Can't wait to read part 2

That was really interesting, tom. Thanks! Where and when did it take place? :)

That must have been lovely to chat with Dave, and I'm glad he loved Mode's gig. Looking forward to the next part 8-)

Nice one Tom!

Mmm, sounds like the 2005 EP didn't get as far as we thought. Did he remember the gig that got cancelled a couple of days before it took place ?

Good man Tom. Nice interview there. Also, is it a bit wrong that I've never heard any Ailerons? :oops:

Great! But how did this happen Tom?? HOW? It's not the most professional interview but damn it, you asked some good questions that the fans want to hear so I commend thee. Excited for part deux.
