WET NUNS ANNOUNCE THEIR OWN FESTIVAL

We fucking love Wet Nuns. If you’ve picked up FRONT 176 you’ll see why, but now we have another reason to rave on about these Northern riffy bastards – they’ve got their own festival. Dubbed Destestival (and sponsored by the awesome dudes at Kraken rum), they’re taking over Sheffield’s Queen’s Social Club this Easter weekend (30-31 March, 2013). There’s a fuckload of bands waiting to be dropped for this, but the first batch is fucking tasty. There’s the crazed Japanese noisemongers Bo Ningen, experimental fun guys Blood Sport and the brain-wrenching, static-fulled Hookworms. Also announced are Wolf People, Kult Country and John J Presley to get your mosh muscle pounding.

Tickets for this noisy weekend are £14 which you can get HERE. It’s going to be well bonks.

A QUICK Q&A WITH NOISIA

Noisia have just put the finishing touches to the DmC: Devil May Cry soundtrack so we chatted to one third of the Dutch electronic collective, Martijn Van Sonderen about the game, having their own record label and playing festivals.

You’ve just completed the soundtrack to the new Devil May Cry game, tell us a bit about your involvement and how you went about creating the soundtrack…
Well it was quite a complicated process, actually. Even though the music director was a fan of our work we had to do a tester to show the producers that they liked it too, so we did an early version of a song for a cut scene as a demo. We were given it, but we didn’t work from start to end, even though some of it was chronological we had to follow in the steps of the developer, so working on certain chapters. Then the music director would send us pieces of video and motion capture with long briefs with what kind of atmosphere they wanted and what it should represent and then lots of talks with the team from Ninja Theory mainly on Skype to get feedback, then we’d try and use that in our kinda way. So lot of back and forth.

A Q&A WITH AARON PAUL

Simon Bland had a quick chinwag with Aaron Paul AKA Jesse from Breaking Bad, to talk about his new film, creating an Aaron Paul cocktail and being drunk.

Sup Aaron? So tell us about Smashed. How did you get involved?
It was sent over to me and I was a little nervous about reading a project that was tackling substance abuse but I started flipping through it and I was instantly drawn into it and I fell in love with just how honest the story was and I really thought I could relate to a lot of these characters in this film. The first person I met was James Ponsoldt, our wonderful director/co-writer of the film and we sat down and talked for a few hours and just really hit it off and then I sat down and talked to our producer Jonathan Schwartz and then the next and final person I met before I was cast was Mary Elizabeth Winstead. We met up in a little restaurant for a light meal and a couple of drinks and I think they really wanted to make sure that she felt comfortable around me and wanted her to give the A-Okay thumbs up and once we sat down everyone kind of agreed that they wanted me to be this character so that’s how it all happened.
