On an earlier post I reviewed the E.P. Strange Buildings by Jenn Vix and if you read it you will know that I throughly enjoyed it.
After some deliberation I decided to see if Vix would be kind enough to grant me an interview. I cautiously reached out to her not really knowing what to expect as she didn’t know who I was and to my delight she agreed.
Here is some background on Vix’s early career before we begin the interview:
In 1984, a one off band saw Vix performing back-up vocals with Nicole Willis from the Soul Investigators, Phil Painson, David Strahan and Adam Horovitz of The Beastie Boys. In 1995 the self titled “Jenn Vix” was her first solo release on her own label, Umbrella.
To date she has released three studio albums, two singles and an E.P. and had several collaborations.
- Reeves Gabrels – “In the House of Dark Shadows” – January 24, 2012
- Speed of Light – April 22, 2013
- Andy Anderson – “Eyes Roll Back” – March 13, 2015
- I Don’t Trust You – June 29, 2015
- Dirk Ivens – “F*ck, Rinse, Repeat” and “Burn” – May 23, 2013
- John Ashton – “The Woman With No Fear” and “Weirdo” on the EP, “Strange Buildings” – November 17, 2015
Now lets get to the interview:
That’s a fantastic list of bands and now I think I know where your great sound comes from.
I envy the fact that you can drive by the ocean, living in Seoul doesn’t allow me to do that.
Didn’t know he was partial Italian tomato soup, I enjoyed his book The Illustrated Man.
So many great bands in this list, most of which appear in my record collection as well.
I guess my next music search are the bands you just named.
I look forward to hearing that.
That sounds pretty cool, hope to hear it soon.
I heard the next Blade Runner is due for release next year (2017), will it equal the quality of the first I wonder?
I love that you have some British classics in there like The Avengers.
I really enjoy watching the Billy Connolly stage shows, I never tire of his routines.
That’s an amazing feat and credit to you and your music.
That’s exactly how I imagine Iggy Pop acting.
