Date 23 April 2014

Listen in as Meri St. Mary talks with Keith Levene: founding member of The Clash & The Flowers of Romance (w/pre Sex Pistols Sid Vicious) but most notably for his legendary guitar work (& co founder) in the groundbreaking Public Image Limited AKA PiL with John Lydon, Jah Wobble & Martin Atkins. PiL put out 3 records together as well as live shows from 1978-1983 that inspired a whole generation & beyond. Keith’s humor & intelligence shine through in this phone interview from his hometown of London where he is surrounded by close family, artists, teachers, books & his studio while focusing predominately on the current crowd funding project on Indiegogo for what was to be PiL’s 4th album Commercial Zone 2014. He has some great stories about the final recording in NYC the “this is what you didn’t want, but what you got” fiasco, wonderful quotes with regards to “doing things that DON’T SUCK”, wisdom of this getting older business, the Veleno guitar guy story & as a self taught multi-instrumentalist (& true spirit of punk) the great line: “who cares – it’s metal, I’m getting it”. There are loads of cool perks to getting involved in The CZ2014 Campaign so check it out, get involved & have some fun with it as Keith prepares to deliver the purest vision w/original &  proper PiL ethos, an unfinished business that has to be done & he is the one to do it….not so much to set the record straight but to get the right record out 30 years later with as many years of composition. As Keith explains:  “PiL was my Purpose In Life, but at the end of the day, what else do you have but your principles?” So get on the Indiegogo tip & support The CZ2014 Campaign while you can….the clock is ticking & as soon as the campaign is done, Keith can get back to composing….....he’s a lucky guy & so are we to have him share his vision: music, art & words with us all……now go check out CZ2014 & get out of it what you put into it!!!!!

Debora Iyall

The band also rehearsed at Clubfoot (along w/the OFFS, chris isaack & many others). With the demise of the band, Debora began teaching art @ The American Indian Charter School emphasizing poetry. She relocated to the desert: 29 Palms (Joshua Tree) as an extreme residency specialist throughout the area. She attended Lewis & Clark College subsequently teaching at The Navajo Nation in Arizona & as a teacher she gave the gift that keeps on giving. In 2010 Debora began performing again & formed Dottie Records, had a successful Kickstarter Campaign & released 2 solo efforts: Stay Strong & Singing Til Sunrise. She's been busy doing art shows, spoken word, acoustic & has a new band that has played LA, SF, SAC & most recently Nevada City. She finds writing is of interest massaging the words & bringing colors & emotions to her pieces, Debora wears many artistic hats & carries herself with grace, dignity, humility & a healthy dose of humor as well as one of the hardest working women in the business (even taking questions from Tyler Cook & Monte Cazazza in studio A). In this hour she shares tidbits from her illustrious past & dreams for the future: she is on the edge as she wants to be, but in her heart wants to INSPIRE! So Git Yer Medicine Woman Wheel ON! and NEVER SAY NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Formed in 1978 they had riveting & compelling live shows as well as 2 releases on Subterranean Records (SCHEINTOT & the Factrix/Cazazza collaboration CALIFORNIA BABYLON) now available as a spankin new reissue on Superior Viaduct. This interview is akin to an audio puzzle with the pieces flying at you in different directions. We cover dead, but not gone, ground featuring Patrick Miller, Tommy Tadlock & the quiet genius of Slava Ranko whose generosity of spirit, & support of audio alchemists enabled Factrix to record Scheintot, their 1st LP. This telephone reunion is as fun as it is informative on subjects such as: chaos, creating tension, teapot whistles, ringtone viruses, radio guitar, glaxobass & Joseph serenading Cole & Bond. In this fantastic stream of consciousness hour a few new songs were created that invite electronics to turn into a nightmare. So get yer Night Of The Succubus DVD ON (with surprise ending courtesy of Mark Pauline of SRL) & laugh like yer catching a straw in the wind!!!!!

The Underground Sound - June 21 2012 - John Silvers Interview

Date 25 June 2012

Listen in as Meri St. Mary talks with San Francisco’s own JOHN SILVERS, drummer, bike messenger & insightful human being, who has played with legendary SF bands The Dils, Chris Isaak, Chimneylions & his current project Streetlions. We cover a lot of territory in this hour chat with John from his joining the Dils in 1978 a band he loved to changing the names of his favorite love songs to Clint Eastwood & Bruce Lee (cuz, ya know, it wasn’t “punk” to do love songs) their “World Domination Tour” & how he thought Chip & Tony were the punk Everly Brothers. The Dils also impressed John Cale enough that he wanted to produce them after they played What Goes On, but again, that wasn’t to be. You can see/hear John Silvers in the punk documentary “Louder, Faster, Shorter” & he has many a humorous tale of behind the scenes live shows including doing benefits for Coal Miners & Laguna Honda Hospital. John is a funny, self deprecating & kind person who tells it like it is & was, we also touch on some dearly departed including Olga de Volga & John’s favorite punk drummer Tim Mooney. John Silvers is a survivor & a hell of a nice guy who loved the early diversity of punk & still lives it, (we all hate those hard core bullies!) Now git yer dub on, go see the Streetlions, oh & ride yer bike!!!

Tune in as Christina shares her vision, her journey & the harsh realities of making an independent film: she is funny, humble & down to earth sharing her “labor of love” PERFECTION that just screened at the SF International Women’s FIlm Festival to a packed house with intelligent Q & A afterwards. Christina & I bonded during the earlier punk scene  in Hollywood, so some fun stories ensue! Oh & we forgot to mention we were in a band together TOEJAM w/ Christina, Maggie & myself.  Also the interview is sprinkled with weather reports in NC as the power went out.  PERFECTION is a love story at heart both men & women should see this film!  There is hope & recovery for the “self injury” that afflicts so many.  NOW – go get yer indie film on & enjoy the hell out of Christina’s humor, vision & experience!  Oh & the Damned figure heavily in the soundtrack!!!  PERFECTION! Both illusion & reality as we are all perfect in our own way! Unfortunately, due to the power outage the last ten minutes of the interview are unattainable, however we plugged Christina’s contacts & verbalized the proverbial “love-fest” for each other!!!
