Check the replies for a good audio interview with Geoff Rickley, of Thursday fame, where he addresses a lot of things … including the rumors that he’ll be working with the remaining members of the now defunt Lostprophets. Also in the interview it’s revealed that Geoff has decided to really buckle down on his label now that he was able to secure some financing from an investor. They have a Saves the Day 7”, Touche Amore 7”, and Title Fight 7” all on deck. It’s a good listen and definitely worth the time.

Random Interview - The Liverspots -

The Liverspots took some time to answer our random interview, which can be found here.
I had been in a lot of bands before and had always been determined not to have a band name with the word, “THE,” in it. For some reason, I now realized that I actually wanted to be a part of that tradition. I guess I figured that it was good enough for the Crickets, the Beach Boys, the Clash, and the Ramones…so it was good enough for us too. I wrote out a list of names that combined these ideas…the Dentures, the Catheters, etc. Most of these names were taken…so I went with the Liverspots. The rest of the dudes joined months later and never got a vote.
