One Question Interviews: Fighting Kites

Neil Debnam (Fighting Kites)

SPB: Is there a particular record you've heard this year that surprised you? In both a good or a bad way?

Debnam: Speaking from a strictly personal point of view rather than as the mouthpiece of four individuals now separated geographically by a few thousand miles, I think it has to be Robert Turman's Flux. I heard it first on the Neus Van God podcast by Kraak and was shocked when I found out it was a reissue of an album from the early Eighties. It sounded, at least to my ears, totally fresh and not at all dated. The other-worldly feeling of the sounds might have had something to do with that though. I love how minimal it is, but at the same time it manages to be so emotive. It has really got me thinking about how I make my own music in Broken Shoulder, although I haven't really managed to transfer those thoughts into actual actions yet. Guess that's difference between being talented (him) and hopefully slogging away (me).

(Damn, I should have picked one of the releases on my new Kirigirisu  label. That would have been the sensible PR-minded thing to have done. Still not very good at that kind of thing).
