Me too, so I sent five questions to the artist formerly known as 10K - the salient parts of my questions are boldfaced and his answers are italicised, so you can save more time by ignoring all the other words...
Big Interview - Mike Haliechuck:
Scotty Tankcrime is releasing your new 7” on June 15, I’m getting the vibe this is the introduction to a run of 7”s, or maybe an LP is either of those going to be reality, or is it just dreams?
The 7" is a prologue to something yes.
I can't predict the future!
Any sane person needs more FU cover versions of obscure 80’s indie tracks, but seasoned Fuckheads right now will be Pavlov-doggingly thumbing their Eliade and Campbell tomes for tower references and wondering about sacred time… will there be plenty to find within the 7” dimensions?
The tower 7" will make more sense in about a month
Your music often generates the sound of things that might not otherwise sound - obvious examples are The Sun shimmering in “No Epiphany”, the motion of the serpent and the moment after death in “Year of The Snake”, the Dragon (obvs Dragons do make sound, but they allegedly don’t exist so it’s the same thing) - is ‘Tower of Time’ going to sound exactly like a real tower of time, or is it more of a four-to-the-floor banger about urban planning?
One of us made a typo - its tower ON time. have you seen the movie High Rise, based on the ballard book?
(That's a kind and gentle way of pointing my out my mistake, but I'd still like to hear a tower of time.)
Last question is more profane; has the ‘Matador era’ of FU finished / do you have anything planned with them, or is the relationship more open?
