Where's Your Head At? - Gogol Bordello

ATL | 11:36 UK time, Thursday, 10 March 2011

 

 

We here at Across The Line are mainly known for our interest and support of local music in Northern Ireland on t'radio and t'internet. You would have to be foolish to write us off as just purveyors of music. We have many strings to our ample bow, don't you know. We fancy ourselves as renegades of the psychoanalytical world, clairvoyant cowboys who trek the rough terrain of the frontal lobe. We live to give bands the break through, to help those in the nutty industry of music find solace. We ask a series of questions and some of our favourite music makers answer them. Challenging, we know.

Gogol Bordello bring their beer soaked brand of European folk to the Mandela Hall in Belfast on the 16th of March. We plumped the lie down sofa and asked bass player Thomas Gobena to share his tears and fears with the capable ATL psychiatrists.

Darwin Deez

 

Indie pop New Yorker, Darwin Deez announced his arrival earlier this year with his debut album, 'Lucky Number’.  Single 'Radar Detector' seemed to be on constant rotation on every radio across the land and his reputation for fun filled live shows was cemented at the summer’s festivals, including Oxegen in July.

But before he lands in Belfast for a show at the Limelight on Wednesday, ATL thought we'd find out a little more background on our musical guest. So like the gentleman he is, Darwin let the guard down and had a bit of a heart to heart with ATL.

Wheres your head at?
Please answer the questions below honestly and we will attempt to cure you.

What is your earliest memory?
Running down the big grassy hill outside my parents' student housing apartment in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with a paper cup filled with frozen water in my hand. Why? to board the bookmobile--a bus filled with library books.

Where's Your Head At - Le Galaxie?

Here at ATL we are constantly attempting to make sense of this cruel and often bewildering thing called life. In an attempt to prove once and for all that people in bands are as fruity round the brain bits as ourselves, we set up a daring psychological experiment. We ask a series of questions and some of our favourite music makers answer them. Challenging, we know.

Dublin based electro-poppers Le Galaxie play Auntie Annies tomorrow evening (29th October) for Animal Disco. We love them, and therefore they are the very first to hop onto the slab for a closer cranial inspection.

What is your earliest memory?
Being cast In Back To The Future in November 1984. We shot for two weeks until the producers realised that an 2-foot infant who couldn't speak English and needed 18 hours sleep a day was a poor choice to play Marty McFly. The role was re-cast.
