A colossal interview with Tim Berne has been posted on Ethan Iverson’s “Do the Math” blog.
This has probably been mentioned, like, everywhere by now, but what’s a blog for if not to repeat the blather on other blogs?
I’m joking. (Well, a little.) I’ve only skimmed the interview, but what I’ve seen is fantastic, tracing the history of Berne’s career, getting into details about how bands like Bloodcount got formed and how the L.A. crowd (Nels and Alex Cline in particular) helped him get going. Iverson picks four tracks to plunge into, both in terms of music and history.
