What bands and labels do you want to see on diskant?

Posted: February 12th, 2007, by Simon Minter

A bit of market research, if you all don’t mind. We here at diskant are eager to hear your suggestions for bands and labels (and indeed anything else) that you would like to see featured/interviewed on the site. We can’t promise anything (especially if you want to see an interview with Elton John or something), but it’d be great to get some ideas about stuff to cover here.

You can see some of the other people we’ve covered here: www.diskant.net/features/index.htm.

Feel free to leave suggestions as comments on this post, or alternatively you can e-mail Marceline or I at the usual addresses… thanks!

Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.

    Something on Fat Cat Records would be interesting – I haven’t bought or reviewed anything off them that wasn’t brilliant.

    That is a very good point – why haven’t we interviewed them?

    Personally, I’d like to do more interviews with event promoters, website owners and artists/designers but I don’t know how interested people would be in these?

    totally, those type of guys would be really interesting I would imagine (provided you pick up cool people – ha ha).

    Also indie comedians would be cool people to interview, they seem to have a vibrant scene akin to DIY music where they put on lots of gigs in all variety of venues with a real community spirit (albeit insular, so it really IS like DIY music). Still it is very creative and fun and those guys really do work hard together and help eachother out.

    I think I may have already seen my gig of the year with the Joe Lally and Zu show, wow! Zu for….everything!
