What, is it 1993?? No. Of course it isn’t. There weren’t blogs in 1993. But, as my contribution to the 300th issue of MOJO, the best music magazine on the planet, I interviewed Krist Novoselic, Jack Endino, Mark Arm, Jonathan Poneman and Robert Van Leeuwen to get an eyewitness low-down on the making of Nirvana’s debut single, Love Buzz.

PumpkinsK!

Meanwhile, in the current issue of Kerrang! magazine, I chat with Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin about the group’s ongoing reunion tour, their forthcoming new album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun., and how having kids has lent a once-combustive group a newfound equilibrium.

Spiritualized

Also, I reviewed Spiritualized’s recent, strings’n’choir-emboldened show at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Enjoy!
