Mikey Erg

Posted Jan. 27, 2020, 3:23 p.m.

Mikey Erg (real name: Mikey Yannich) is a legend in the world of pop-punk because he has been in countless punk bands throughout the 2000s. He first made his name with The Ergs!, who released their first album, Dorkrockcorkrod, in 2004. In 2017, that album made Rolling Stone's "50 Greatest Pop-Punk Albums" list. It's 16 songs packed into 32 minutes, and it turned 15 this year. The Ergs have been playing a few shows to commemorate their beloved groundbreaking album. I met Mikey in a busy coffee shop in SoHo last October, when he happened to have some time off between touring, practicing, and recording with at least five bands: his solo project, The Ergs, Early Riser, Worriers ...

Mastery

Interviews

Mastery

Posted Nov. 22, 2015, 3:12 p.m.

There is no question about Mastery's debut full-length, Valis, being one of the most intense records of 2015. The one-man project of Ephemeral Domignostika is a perfect example of how black metal sound can further evolve its aggression and further push the boundaries that define it. In this interview conducted via email, the man behind Mastery sheds light into the application of improvisation in his music, compositional experiments, free performance as well as discussing other projects he is involved with and what the future holds for Mastery. Scene Point Blank: Hey! First of all thanks for finding the time ...
