diskant construction update (slight return)

Posted: June 20th, 2008, by Marceline Smith

HURRAH, I think I have finally finished reformatting every single damn page on diskant into the new format. I haven’t been able to do any page redirects because a) my mac doesn’t like htaccess files and b) it’s so much work, but you should be able to find everything via the Features or Talentspotter indexes, or by using the handy search box top right.

Here’s some cool stuff I spotted in the archives as I toiled:

– Chris Summerlin’s masterworks; diskant gets the blues and the time he interviewed himself about Sonic Youth
– Dave Stockwell’s still-awesome and relevant guide to getting gigs
– Xoë challenging Steve of Cat on Form (now of Blood Red Shoes) to answer for their political stances.
– My favourite interviewees; Icebreaker International and Mogwai
– Excellent interviews with Zoot Horn Rollo, Ian Mackaye, Guy Picciotto, Foetus and Steve Turner

Enjoy! But hurry up, as there’s a whole stack of new content hitting diskant this weekend.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
