Mean Caesar interview 23-01-2019

Avast ye scurvy crustaceans of the depths of the internet. I interviewed the kindly gents from Mean Caesar after their set at Wharf Chambers in Leeds (from their gig with Airstream Futures). It was kind of a two for the price of one deal, so I basically used mostly the same questions I asked Airstream Futures in my interview with them. In the spirit of honesty and openness, due to lack of sleep and the aversion of a minor crisis, I hadn’t really had any time to prepare any questions as such, apart from some scrawlings in pad I made whilst cramming a hummous butty into my gaping maw, and then added to on the bus on the way to the gig.

I could probably say what we talked about, but you may as well just have a listen instead.

You can check out my review of the recent one sided 12in record that they recently released (well, less than 6 months ago, so kinda recent?) right here. Go and buy it, like.

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.
