THE MOURNING AFTER : "Captain Sensible’s parting gesture to us was (...) gobbing on the windscreen of our van."

We promised you this when their album was released on the excellent Toulouse label Rogue Records! Well, at Les Monstres Sacrés, we keep our word. So here's the Mourning After interview ! First of all, could you introduce yourselves? Hi I’m Chris Blackburn & I’m the guitarist/singer/songwriter in The Mourning After. Have you played in other bands before? I was the bass player in The Tenants which were formed at our high school when we were 15 years old. We were all huge fans of The Beatles after the BBC aired their films at Christmas 1978. From then on we all started listening to other 60’s beat band’s such as The Kinks , Pretty Things , Yardbirds to name a few and covered many of their tunes as well as penning our own. first Line Up What brought you to the music you play together? The Tenant’s disbanded when the members went off to University but we all remained good friends and stayed in contact. By this time we’d spread our musical wings into the realms of 60’s garage wh

DIG IT! RADIO SHOW - du 9 février 2017

       Dig It ! c'était un fanzine et une émission de radio diffusée sur la région toulousaine. Tous deux produits par de vrais passionnés, des personnes issues du fanzinat, de la radio, qui vendaient des disques, organisaient des concerts et qui pensaient humblement avoir suffisamment d'informations pour pouvoir les transmettre, « l'équipe de Dig It ! avait l'impression d'emmagasiner les informations utiles d'où la décision de les redistribuer » (Dig It ! #1 octobre 1993). C e fanzine est sans conteste un des plus importants que l'hexagone ait connu, une des références majeures de l'info rock underground. Il aura vécu 27 ans, une belle performance. Et Dig It ! c'était donc également une  émission de radio  animée par les mêmes passionnés. Elle aura permis, comme le fanzine, de découvrir un tas de groupes, artistes, labels et autres. Il nous a semblé important de rediffuser les émissions cette année, pour les trente ans de DG. Nous espérons que vous

So we didn't want to miss the opportunity to talk about them again, following the release of a new digital title. Andy Shernoff was kind enough to answer a few more of our questions. Looking through your discography, we were surprised to find quite a few things we wouldn't expect to find in it. Were you always happy with your work ? Generally, yeah… Hindsight is 20/20. You learn along the way. The satisfaction is in the process. How and why did you become a producer after your career with the Dictators? I was unhappy with the production on the early Dictators records so I was determined to understand the how you make a record and get the sound I heard in my head Photo by Nikki Ishmael You were also a studio musician. Did you enjoy playing with others as much as you did in your own band, or did you feel less committed when you were only playing f
