Neko Case Q&A

Last week, indie-folk singer Neko Case held a raffle to win her 1967 Mercury Cougar (pictured below, which became the cover to her Middle Cyclone album) to benefit 826 National, an organization that helps with tutoring children and encouraging literacy. I interviewed her for the Sound of the City blog, and we talked about her car, tweeting too much, and the movie The Beastmaster. She retweeted it a couple of times and, personally, I find nothing wrong with her Twitter etiquette there.

PJ Harvey, Gus G., and Kane Hodder

Over the past few weeks, I’ve had some articles published I want to share here. First is my review of PJ Harvey’s new album, Let England Shake, which I wrote for The Village Voice. In it, I talk about her transformation into a political commenter…sort of. I really love the album except for a few minor things. To check my review, click here.

Next up is an interview I did with current Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, Gus G. (pictured below), who played on the album Scream (an album that made my 2010 Albums of the Year for The Village Voice’s Pazz + Jop poll). I got a minor scoop about new music that he’s written for Ozzy and also he told me about how he gave Ozzy a farting pen. To read, click here.

Last up, is an interview I did with actor Kane Hodder (pictured below), best known for playing Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Parts VII through X, and Hatchet director Adam Green. As a fan of the Jason movies, this was a lot of fun. Hodder is exactly what you’d hope he’d be. Also, look for more with these two in the next issue of Revolver out March 8. To read, click here.
