An interview with dark postpunk band The Spectres!

Vancouver, British Columbia's Spectres released one of the finest LPs of 2010, Last Days. Their 2007 "Cold War" EP opened a lot of eyes (and ears) at the time, and it is frankly stunning to think that that came out half a decade ago. The band play an especially well-made type of dark punk that magazines like Maximum Rock 'n Roll have likened to early Joy Division, Crisis, and early 80s UK peace punk like The Mob. They've been a favorite for awhile and I was more than stoked to hear that within the next few months (as of April, 2012) the band are releasing a new LP, Strange Weather! The band have a website here, a Facebook page here, and a Myspace page here.

An interview with new deathrock band DEAD CULT!

New, dark Portland band Dead Cult have never used the word "deathrock" to describe their sound, preferring instead the terms "anarcho gothic rock" and "anarcho darkwave" (much like Christ vs Warhol describe their own sound as "anarcho-postpunk"). 

Reminiscent at times of early Siouxsie and the Banshees or Hysteria, the music -- whatever label you choose to apply to it -- is exceptionally good, especially for a band this young. In fact, it's hard to believe they've existed for less than half a year when listening to their tracks, many of which are available freely on Youtube, and some of which are below. (Indeed, I was surprised to find out how young the band were after I approached them for an interview -- the musicianship, confidence in the vocals, etc., is far beyond their years.) Dead Cult have a Facebook page here; most pictures below are from that.

A note of warning: Get ready for a torrent of band names!
