Frankie Stubbs of Leatherface interview (part 2)

Those of you that have been following this obviously mediocre webzine for some time may well remember part one of the Frankie Stubbs interview from May 2019. If you can’t remember it or haven’t had a listen, you may as well go and have a look, innit.

Anyways, after loads of half arranged attempts to set up the second part of the interview, almost 13 months later, I managed to sit down with Frankie over Skype and have a chat. The results of this can be heard in the player below, and cover such diverse subjects as the new 7in on Little Rocket Records, Blood Orange Moon, Covid 19, plagues of locusts, bird watching, and a bloke that was convinced he got gay-bashed by some seagulls.

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.
