If you're Canadian, I hope you know what Brave New Waves is. If you're from elsewhere, try the interweb. I was typing to someone about it and remembered that I'd heard Wolf Eyes for the first time on this late night program, being interviewed just after they'd played the DEMF, post Sub Pop deal but pre-Burned Mind. I was interested because of the Black Dice connection (Black Dice were good at the time). Dudes cracked me up, especially Olson's repeated references to being a "rat kid," and the music peeled my head back, like that Maxell commercial but with tentacles and shit. So I went to the BNW site, and turns out it's archived on there. Noice! One thing that stood out this time around was Patti Schmidt asking them why sub-underground noise was starting to get attention. They basically said that all these freaks had been doing what they were doing for a while, travelling amongst their own circles, and now they're actually starting to become quite good at the forms they've pioneered. The obvious example was Lightning Bolt. I think it's true, and all the young'ns they've inspired are coming into their own as well. Just wanted to say that. Hooray for music. Hooray for weirdoes. Hooray.
Just scroll through the interviews. You can listen to the other ones too. If you want.
