A Pair of Interviews with Ms. Gonson

Ms. Gonson is interviewed by Under the Radar, a New Zealand publication, right here.  It's a really terrific interview and offers a lot of insight into her perspective on the documentary and other such things.  Highly recommended.

I also know she recently did an interview with a New Zealand radio show.  However, I'm having no luck tracking down a transcription or a recording of said event.  Any help would be much appreciated!!

I'm sorry for the lack of updates - I've recently moved and don't have any internet connection yet.  Just this shitty little library to serve my needs for the time being.

Just a review and an update

Guys, it appears that I've died or fallen from grace with Merritt lately.  Neither are true; there's just been a crippling comination of a dirth of Stephin Merritt news and an abundance of things going on in my personal life.

Still, though!  I have consistently prided myself on this blog's consistent updates and I don't plan to change that now.  I've missed the boat on several reviews of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields, but let's let bygones be bygones.  Here's this really extraordinary review of 20KUTS featuring a wealth of really awesome photographs.  It comes highly recommended.

This is where I patiently await the day I can announce the new Future Bible Heroes album...  Tick tock, tick tock...
