How To Make Josh Carlson Of Redscroll Records Pull His Hair Out- An Interview

October 20, 2010

If you’ve ever been to a show at Cherry St Station, or any of the other Wallingford, CT area venues (and I use that term loosely), chances are you’ve found your way over to Redscroll Records. If you were trying to find an album from Bloodlet, The Jazz June or Rorschach, and didn’t feel like waiting for it in the mail, chances are you’ve been to Redscroll Records. Or if you live in CT and give a shit about independent music, then you’ve been to Redscroll Records.Josh Carlson has been dedicated to providing hard to find releases to the residents of CT since he was 15 years old, running a distro out of his SUV. He personifies the word dedication, as he now owns and successfully runs Redscroll Records, CT’s definitive independent record store.

We Are Scientists Interview

123
October 10, 2010

Saturday, Oct 9th, 2010, 7pm. I sit on the corner of Daniel St, in Milford, CT at a quaint, hipster sort of coffee shop, called Café Atlantique. Tonight is the first night in the We Are Scientists month and a half Behold The American Barbarians Tour, which has the scientists covering the east coast, mid-west, and UK.  

I have approximately an hour to kill before my interview, so I begin reviewing my pre-interview notes. After a few moments, I look up and coincidentally see the scientists come in (those hipsters). I briefly consider playing the star struck fan, making a huge scene, but I then look back down at the piece of chocolate cake I’d been working on, and get back down to business.  I finish my notes, and cake (not necessarily in that order), and contact their tour manager Brandon to get things rolling.

The following was conducted at a back table of Café Atlantique. The interview begins with guitarist/vocalist Keith Murray and myself, shortly after which, we were joined by bass player/vocalist Chris Cain. Keith and Chris are easily the most enjoyable guy’s I’ve had the privilege of interviewing to date. Read on and see why…

Horror Q&A With Randy Larsen Of Cable

October 9, 2010

If I were to make a horror movie, based on someone from a band as the vengeful killer, it would definitely be Randy Larsen. If you know him, you know he’s a hell of a nice guy. He’s sincere and very dedicated to his passion of music, but if you’ve ever seen him perform with Cable, you know he’s a force to be reckoned with. Put him in a ring with Jason Vorhees and I honestly don’t know who’s going down first (unless it’s Jason from the new Friday remake, in which case the answer is obvious). The following is a perfect example of how to have fun with an interview!

In the few short years CT Indie has been around, it has established itself as the “go-to” site for all things independent related in CT. Jason Devin, creator of CT Indie, was kind enough to take some time to share a bit of his story, and vision of CT’s independent music scene.
