Drowners Interview

New York’s prettiest post-punk rockers Drowners were gracious enough to give us an interview in anticipation of their show at Ace of Cups on June 13th (Doors at 8pm, Friendly Faux opens). They’ll be touring throughout the U.S. to promote their new album out June 24th entitled  “On Desire” If you could tour with any band living or dead, broken up or together, who would it be and why? The Clash.  Seeing them play every night would be totally awe inspiring.    Who is the most underrated musician/songwriter? Vini Reilly of the Durutti Column.  He’s a real genius a lot of people pass over.      What is the first record you ever bought? First record I bought – Jimi Hendrix ‘Are You Experienced’… But the record with the biggest impact on me – Fugazi ’13 Songs’    What is a band you love, that you think people would be surprised by? ABBA.  We’re all huge fans.   If you had to pick another occupation, what would be your dream job outside of being a musician? I’ve always wondered about the guy who changes the lights at the top of the Empire State Building. That or a lighthouse keeper.  There’s a thread here I think.      What’s on the tour van playlist? A lot of ABBA. Beach Boys. Harry Nilsson. And GG Allin.  But that was just today’s drive.    ...

So if you enjoy this, stop in soon and get some more Spoonful Records recommendations! Who is the most underrated musician or songwriter? I think Fairport Convention very underrated, at least the first album. The other stuff I kinda understand not being as popular because it’s so traditional folk. Speaking of Fairport, who do you like better Judy Dyble or Sandy Denny? Judy Dyble, all the way! What’s the most underrated album? There’s a lot of underrated albums, I guess it’s just whether it had the ability to be heard or not. It kind of changes a lot, one of my favorite records is by this band Ithaca. They’re a British band, a group of people that put out five different albums out under different band names, Ithaca, Agincourt, Tomorrow Comes Someday, Alice Through The Looking Glass, and Friends; but the Ithaca record is awesome. It’s really great, home recorded, just absolutely beautiful. It could have been the biggest record at...
