I was interviewed for a second time by this great blog. I salute the interviewer, Alex, for transcribing the whole hour-long thing by hand. Damn.
If you are interested in plunging down the deep, deep rabbit hole:
I just did an interview for this blog about my noise.

After a lengthy detour, I finally managed to wrangle new music into the Rock Band Network. Please enjoy.
Anarchy Club has just released our new track, “Skulls”. It’s a sad, sad song. About love. Kind of.
Recorded violin today for the first time. After Russell rained sorrowful tones and tears all over the new Anarchy Club song, I had him noodle on a bunch of other tracks. Now that I know he can do Shakti, things are going to get interesting.
With the official shuttering of Guitar Hero by Activision last week, and the fire sale of Harmonix to private investors the week before, the rhythm game genre seems to have run smack into a wall. (Sarcasm alert) Who would have thought repeatedly dumping increasingly inferior product onto the market at a blinding pace would quickly exhaust the world’s appetite for rhythm games? I’m looking at you, Guitar Hero… uh… 6?!?! What hilarious greed, Activision.
So now Guitar Hero and its vastly superior cousin, Rock Band, have gone the way of the pet rock. (Full disclosure: I totally had one when I was a kid.)
But I can’t complain. I will always be grateful for GH/RB, as the games brought Anarchy Club into the homes of millions of players. When we’re all grandparents, we’ll fondly reminisce about the old-time rhythm game fad… as our grandchildren insert their holographic game controllers into the slots in their foreheads…
My pal M-Cue has a new album out that may interest those of you who like Anarchy Club. He’s responsible for my favorite remixes on our “A Single Drop of Red” CD.
