Swervedriver did tour in support of 99th Dream , but the band soon realized that it was preaching to a shrinking choir. Are there any songs in your back catalogue that you’ve deliberately left out this time around? MySpace, for example, is a good thing. After some deliberation, the band’s two guitarists, Jimmy Hartridge and Adam Franklin Graham’s brother , decided to soldier on, rounding out the Swervedriver lineup with bassist Adi Vines and drummer Graham Bonnar. Has that been reflected in the demographic of the audiences at your shows? And you watched Top of the Pops and T. I guess I wanted to express that.

FCJ Interview: Adam Franklin of Swervedriver | Fog City Journal

He played his first rock concert at the age of 12, supporting a Kiss tribute band. Ultimately all that remained of the band according to Franklin was, “myself, Jimmy Hartridge and some effects pedals”, though Moulder still hez producing a full-length Swervedriver album. We never had anything like that. A lot of it is very bog standard and not really psychedelic at all. Retrieved 10 August I think if you were to ask our fanbase most would probably say Raiseand while it has a certain charm about it, for me it’s also quite flawed in places.


But for some reason, we never got to it.

A lot of people think this new album is our best anyway. Jez Hindmarsh was born in Losses, Journeys, and Ascensions: We definitely got buried under Britpop. And we flew out and flew back on the Monday. You don’t need to get a record deal any more.

Louis marked it as to-read Feb 24, A Rockumentarywhich also featured interviews and the music videos for “Son of Mustang Ford” and “Sandblasted”, and released it on 14 May That’s definitely been the case.


Aside from themes of fatalism and flight working their way into its composition, “for some reason we were wanting to reverse the notion of being the band with hondmarsh American references in our songs and so some very British reference points appeared in the lyrics,” hindmardh Franklin. A lot of people in England go to India. But we’d rather record through multiple amps as it gives us a much broader spectrum of sound.

That song sort of defines a change in the way we’re thinking. I guess things really did change quite significantly after punk rock.

It isn’t entirely irredeemable, but The House that Jack Built’ s familiar gimmicks say much more about Lars von Trier as a brand than as a provocateur or artist. Ejector Seat Reservation was probably the record where we did take a step back. Nothing that got finished.


It all happened quite quickly and we met up in a pub in London last month and figured out what we’d like to do, which at this point is just heading out and playing some shows again. What are your observations on the soundtrack of today versus the soundtrack of the s?

Other than that, it’s a phenomenal read. Swervedriver are now on a comeback tour for the first time since Franklin soon found himself in a room full of strangers mixing the presumptive first single, “These Times”. Archived from the original on 12 October So when we did get back together Jez Hindmarsh rejoined the band, but when he left in Graham came back on board.
