Interview with Simon of Fanfarlo

Fanfarlo‘s lead vocalist / frontman, Simon Balthazar, took time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions for me.  The band is generously offering their debut album (plus some bonus tracks), Reservoir, for $1 on their website.

Interview with Murray Hewitt (band manager for Flight of the Conchords)

Date August 23, 2007

Billed as the “fourth most popular folk parody duo in New Zealand”, Flight of the Conchords has become a new obsession of mine.

Fast Food and an Interview with Headlights

Date October 12, 2006

We were a little pressed on time so we didn’t go to dinner (as I did with the Shearwater Interview), but we did grab some fast food while [...]
