Airstream Futures interview 23-01-19

Guten abend, as I believe they say in Germany. I’ve probably spelt it wrong too. Anyway, here is an interview I did with Airstream Futures at their gig last night at Wharf Chambers. I’ve not done a face to face interview since the year 2000, so this was kinda out of my comfort zone, anxiety-ridden little beast that I am.

This interview was set up by Graeme Philliskirk of Little Rocket Records (and a bunch of bands like Leatherface and Medictation); so special thanks to Graeme for encouraging me – nay requesting that I do this interview. It’s been really healthy for and challenging to my condition to get out there and do something. More special thanks to Jeff, Devon, Mike and Katie for being kind enough to sit down with me and chat shit – I had a great time.

Anyways, have a listen to this. Sadly I’d stopped recording when Mike told me about getting a boner at Disneyworld when he was 12…

You can check out my review of their recent 7in EP here. You can also stream it there too, and find a link to buy it here.

You can find the remaining dates of the tour in the pic below, so go an see them, they rule.

Tony of Nurgle is a true child of the North, recently returned to Yorkshire and residing in Leeds (after close to a decade living in exile in Croydon and South East London). He used to co-run a specialist record store in Manchester (Roadkill Records), and also several years as a promoter, and put on shows for the likes of Leatherface, the Loved Ones, Lucero, Minus The Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, Spy vs Spy, Latterman etc. He also spent several years DJing at shady rock clubs in Manchester, and started the infamous Thursday night "punk room" at Jilly's Rockworld. Also responsible for Middle Finger Response, and collaborated with a couple of friends on a monthly night called Refuse to Lose, which will still occasionally reunite the original DJ line-up - next event at Retro in Manchester on 07/09/2019. Apart from that, it's all bitterness and a jaundiced view of human nature, occasionally skateboarding, always exhausted, often reading books with maps in the front.
