    Dan Deacon

    Michael Azerrad“s Our Band Could Be Your Life was issued ten years ago, and it”s an account of American indie- and underground bands mainly during the eighties. The bands described in the book (the likes of Black Flag, Minor Threat, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.) never really found mainstream success, but did have a very important role in the foundations of American indie rock.

    Next week, Michael Azerrad will share the insights he gained while writing the book in his keynote at the Incubate DIY Conference. We”ll also have (amongst others) the Dutch premiere of the documentary PressPausePlay, a film on hope, fear and digital culture, an interview with DIY- and punk legend Steve Ignorant and a lecture and performance by artist Bill Drummond. Check out the full program here. Tickets are Pay What You Want and are available here.

    The Village Voice has a great article on young, contemporary bands and the influence the book had on them. In

    the article, Dan Deacon (who did an amazing show at Incubate last year), Ted Leo and Wye Oak”s Jenn Wasner describe when they read

    the book and the effect it had on them. Here”s a great account Dan Deacon told The Village Voice:

    “I had $450 to my name and I used it to buy a 30 day bus ticket to finish the last 25 shows of the tour. That Playing games in the online casinos can bring you a lot of money, but you may also lose the same amount. book kept me going through some really rough times and helped to keep me grounded. Every time I started to freak out about being alone in a part of the country I had never been–with no cell phone, no email, no credit card, no money and no ID–reading that book helped to remind me of pioneers of the scene and the shit they went through.”

    “I had pre-bought all my food for the tour to save money–one can or corn, one can of beans, two rice cakes and two servings of peanut butter for each day–and that”s what I lived on. I had to carry that shit on my back

    while lugging my 150 pounds of gear with me from bus station to bus station, and I did it with a smile on my face thinking about the rotten and moldy apples Black Flag, a band I had never even knowingly heard, ate while they were on tour. The book means a lot to me. I think if I hadn”t been reading that book when the car broke down I would of just taken a bus straight home and might not of toured again.”

    Next week at the Incubate DIY Conference, John Robb, writer, BBC commentator and singer of the band Goldblade will do an interview with Steve Ignorant, one of the founders of legendary anarcho-punkband Crass. With Crass, Ignorant was one of the driving forces of the DIY movement, and therefore a major influence on the punk movement. John Robb writes for The Observer, The Guardian and The

    Independent and will interview Ignorant about DIY, Crass’ and Ignorant’s aesthetic and his autobiography The Rest is Propaganda.

    In advance to the interview between Ignorant and Robb, Dutch punk rockband Antillectual (who played Incubate last year) put down some questions for John Robb on paper about… Well, DIY and punk rock of course, but also on the digital revolution, the traditional music industry, The Ramones (so, punk rock again), the social contents of new bands, piracy and the corporate world, cutbacks on art and music funding and the legacy of Crass.

    Check out the first part of the interview at the Eerste Hulp Bij Plaatopnamen website. The introduction is in Dutch, but the interview is in English. The second

    part will appear online tomorrow. Interested in hearing more? Join us next week, September 16 at the DIY Conference. Be sure to get a ticket in advance here.

    Here”s a short piece of the interview:

    There is still lots of young people thinking and feeling things: the student demonstrations, the anti-globalization movement, it may not be in the charts but who gives a fuck about the

    charts? I think the gains made by the counter culture are so much part of the mainstream now that no-one notices them any more, they seem normal.”

    (This blogpost is in Dutch, because the article it refers to is also in Dutch).

    Precies twintig jaar geleden kwam het album Nevermind van Nirvana uit, volgens zowel de makers van OOR als de lezers het beste album van de afgelopen veertig jaar. Daarom besteedt het blad de komende editie (14 september in de winkel) uitgebreide aandacht aan het album met een tien pagina’s tellende special.

    Daarin is ook een interview met Michael Azerrad, de keynote spreker op de Incubate DIY Conference te vinden. Azerrad schreef onder

    andere Come As You Are, door velen gezien als de officiële biografie van de band en waarvoor de schrijver maandenlang optrok met de bandleden en andere betrokkenen. Daarnaast produceerde hij de film Kurt Cobain: About A Son om zijn beeld van de band en Kurt Cobain weer te geven.

    Op vrijdag 16 september spreekt Michael Azerrad over zijn boek Our Band Could Be Your Life, over de opkomst van de Amerikaanse punk- en indierock in de jaren “80. Het boek beschrijft de verhalen van bands als Black Flag, Sonic Youth, Minor Threat en Hüsker Dü. Tickets voor de conferentie zijn Pay What You

    Want en hier te verkrijgen. Het hele programma van de conferentie vind je hier.

    Het interview met Michael Azerrad is alvast online verschenen op de site van OOR, als voorproefje voor de special en DIY Conference. Het hele interview lees je hier. Hieronder een onderdeel ervan:
