Dillinger Four - 25th anniversary

Posted Dec. 2, 2019, 2:40 p.m.

A long, long time ago, Scene Point Blank sat backstage at the Triple Rock before a Dillinger Four show. The goal was to capture an oral history of the band. How they formed, what stood out in creating each record, and notable moments in their career. Basically a play-by-play from the band. D4 does things their own way at their own pace. It’s one of the key points in this interview, which got us partway through the history before soundcheck killed the momentum and we intended to pick it up another day. That day has yet to come, so what was once to be a 20th anniversary article was pushed back. I’d cleverly planned the backup title of ...

Ian Mackaye

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

When SPB saw Ian Mackaye's new band The Evens play, it was situated in a large ornate church hall, with a crowd of varying age seated on pews in some twisted parody of a church sermon. If the crowd represented a congregation, did that make Ian Mackaye the preacher? Leading everyone in the refrain to Mt. Pleasant Isn't ("The police will not be excused / The police will not behave"), it almost looked that way, but as our man Matt spoke to him, it became clear that the role of a preacher to the masses is far from how ...
