I’ve ashamedly fronted on a lot of Aussie rock bands for years. One particular band being Something For Kate. Sure, I’d heard the name in the last decade or so but never paid attention.
That was until we bumped into SFK’s singer/songwriter Paul Dempsey in the elevator at CMJ in New York City a month or so ago. He took the time to chat to us, and we managed to catch him live twice while we were in town, and last weekend here in Toronto at the Drake. His solo album, ‘Everything Is True’, is fucking brilliant, to say the least. The main singles and videos from the album have the damn embed code disabled (from Paul’s official page), so here are my two favourite songs from Paul anyway – ‘Safety In Numbness’ live in NYC, and new song ‘We’ll Never Work In This Town Again’. There’s also a great video of Paul being interviewed in Melbourne about his songwriting process. Dude’s a genius, straight up.
So my over-indulgence, combined with this freezing Canadian weather, have resulted in a bit of bed-ridden flu steez. A good friend passed me some links of some amazing documentaries and interviews to help pass the time, so I thought I’d share them with y’all. The first one is a brilliant interview with Mr David Icke, a personal favourite of mine. The other two are to do with the late Aaron Russo, Hollywood producer and freedom fighter. One is a fantastic interview conducted by Alex Jones, and the other is Mr Russo’s film ‘America: Freedom Or Fascism’. Go educate yourselves.
There’s been a fair bit of noise about Em’s interview on 60 Minutes, so here it is. Peep the info after the jump.
PS. Apologies for the lack of posts. A3C has kicked our ass, but has been the best experience of our careers thus far. We’ll do a proper wrap up in the coming days, we just winding down in ATL for a bit.
‘CBS’ “60 Minutes” chronicled Eminem’s rise from being bullied in school to becoming the biggest-selling artist of the decade. Journalist Anderson Cooper followed Em to Detroit, visiting his old 8 Mile stomping grounds, an underground club where he battled, his private recording studio, and one of his sold-out concerts at Detroit’s Comerica Park.
Marshall Mathers told Anderson how he stores all his lyrics on notepads (aka “stacking ammo”), not being interested in meeting his father, refraining from using profanity in his house, being two hours away from dying of a drug overdose, and commencing with his first stadium show since being sober.
Em hopes his story can help others weather the storm. “If I can help people that have been through a similar situation, then why not?” he said.’
