Interview: Queens of the Stone Age for Drowned in Sound

Posted on by Kate Hutchinson

The first time I interviewed Josh Homme, I was 19 and we went shoe shopping in Camden before smoking through a pack of fags with Joey Castillo in the K-West Hotel. I'm pretty sure I almost died, both of happiness and of tar. Nearly seven years later, with their next new album, and without Joey Castillo, we spoke for 10 minutes over the phone.  Times have a-changed, indeed. Read about the making of their album, Like Clockwork, over at Drowned in Sound.


Review: End of the Road Festival 2011

Posted on by Kate Hutchinson

A couple of weeks ago, I went to review End of the Road festival for Drowned in Sound. I was an organisational disaster, but it was a super-lovely weekend in the end, and, best of all, I got to DJ with Anthony Chalmers from God Don't Like It inside a boat suspended above a flashing dancefloor while young children breakdanced. I am currently resisting the urge to say YEAHBEATTHAT. I suppose this is also the part where I tell you that I've been playing the odd record here and there since February and I rather like it.

Anyway, wonderfully, The Guardian have captured a split second of that moment in this short film about the festival.

You can read my review of it on Drowned in Sound here too, if you please. I swooned over Beirut rather a lot.
