Cold Cave

Posted Sept. 7, 2014, 3:41 p.m.

I enter a boutique hotel in the East London borough of Shoreditch and I'm immediately approached by overly friendly staff and cautious security guards. They give me the once over then politely ask for my room number. When I tell them I don't have a room, they ask what business I have at their hotel. Everyone's courteous, sure, but it's clear from their response that with my traveler's beard and unkempt hair the staff are all asking: What is this guy doing here? I explain that I have an interview Wes Eisold, the lead singer of Cold Cave and American Nightmare, and receive blank stares. "He's a patron at the hotel," I say. Nothing ...

Hated Youth

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

In light of this, it's quite the enlightening experience to sit down and talk with a veteran of the scene: Gary from Florida hardcore band Hated Youth. It's a lengthy one and Gary goes into plenty of detail, covering the status of the scene back then and the band's experiences and beginnings. Scene Point Blank: How was the scene back then? Gary: As I'm sure you've ...
