Gorilla Angreb: Interview by Todd. Dang it, we just made a joke about a band from Europe today sounding like a band from L.A. thirty years ago. People think it’s easy to come up with jokes about cool bands every month, but it’s really not. Then again, we won’t complain about this many cool bands. (www.myspace.com/gorillaangreb)
Greg Palast: Interview by Chris Pepus. Notable American reporter Greg Palast shares his views on numerous modern news topics today and takes nearly every modern politician down a peg in the process. (http://www.gregpalast.com/)
The Mormons: Interview by Amy Adoyzie and Gus Straub. Contrary to what the average person may think, we take things seriously here at Razorcake. Very seriously. That’s why we love a band who rocks out the right time, every time. (https://www.facebook.com/themormons)
Dan Sartain: Interview by Graham Russell. He’s all into blues, garage bands, rockabilly, and all of that stuff. He’s like the youngest badass old dude ever. (http://dansartain.com/)
Pink Razors: Interview by Ben Snakepit. Ben digs deep to find out that the Pink Razors actually began as a think tank group, inventing a better vegetable peeler, only to form a band after a long, drawn-out legal battle. Also; that might not have happened. (www.myspace.com/pinkrazors)
Bad Dudes: Interview by Kat Jetson. It’s hard to tell if these dudes sound more like Devo or an old video game. We would’ve tried asking them about it… if they’d shut up about MySpace for just a second. (http://www.baddudes.net/)
Chaos in Tejas/Rikkifest: Article by Ben Snakepit. See the world through the eyes of Ben as he spends three days seeing a ridiculous amount of great shows, parties, and somehow makes it to work, and live through it all. Or, for short, “a normal Thursday, Friday, and Saturday” for Ben. (http://www.chaosintejas.com/)
