Grunge Summit 2008: Part III

4499

MOJO is on newsstands this week with a big fat Sub Pop cover, a free CD (Sub Pop 300!) and lots more about the grunge days from these folks who filled out my silly questionnaires.

What Susan Silver (Grunge Band Manager Extraordinaire) Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?* Band Manager and Mom
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    It has happened, which schocked the hell out of me. Japan and Spain are my biggest fan bases.
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    Well…I think the current state of music is totally reinvigorated. The focus seems to be off the “prize” more now and back to expression. State of music business—not so good but that is what’s helping fuel DIY again.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. Thievery Corporation
    2. Mark Pickerel demo
    3. Clay Ballard
    4. Manu Chao
    5. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    No to both.

What Charles Peterson (Grunge Photographer Extraordinaire) Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?* Photographer (freelance)
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    No
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    Depressing for a photographer (1st three songs, no flash, and all that B.S.)
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. The Clash Sandinista
    2. M.I.A. Kala
    3. LCD Soundsystem
    4. Wolfmother
    5. Big Youth Screaming Target
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    Sometimes (and it almost always involves Kurt Cobain). Yes.
