The Motorhead one probably goes back ten or fifteen years ago when I was in LA. November 5, Swervedriver contiune a rather aggressive year of touring with a handful of new live dates! The internet has made it easier for bands to get their music out there but with so much music to sift through, the big question is whether anyone would notice and ultimately hear it. To a certain extent that was the same for us. They have to buy in the product and hope that people come in and buy it. To activate your account, please confirm your password.

May 5, Come check out Adam’s solo electric tour, Italy. For swervdriver band like us, putting out an album makes sense whereas for a pop or hip hop artist its more about putting out tracks specifically to get played on the radio.

It’s James Cargill from Broadcast’s new group and I’d definitely recommend the album. Then it was licensed to a few labels in Australia and Japan so we got the record out to where it needed to be. We only found out a couple of weeks ago there’s a label in Holland reissuing Mezcal Head.

Plus you can barter with them when they want you to play it again – a bottle of beer here, getting to ride shotgun for the next 50 miles there.

Then of course there’s the number of limited edition releases that end up on eBay.

In the first line he says, “All of my life I’ve tried so hard, doing my best with what I had. Any truth to this, or am I completely off-base? It’s great for kids now. So I contacted Duncan and he asked for the tracks straight away, thought they sounded great then asked if I’d be up for releasing them as a single for Record Store Day.


I remember playing this little club in Singapore which two of our friends put on, a Scottish couple who’ve moved over there. The band Film School seem to be doing the right kind of thing — taking the influence and leading it somewhere new. March 27, Adam will be playing some shows next month as guitarist in the new project of ex-Mercury Rev singer David Baker, Variety Lights.

It’s the eternal question mark. I guess it means we must have had something unique about us after all.

We’d become quite disenchanted although we didn’t technically break up.

Swervedriver Coachella more by Ryan Muir. Afterwards, people were coming up to us and saying it was like we’d never been away and the sound had advanced a bit.

Like you said, there’s so much more to sift through. When we were checking the credits for the publishers one of the credits on there was Phil Taylor, their twitfer late drummer.

DiS Does Handmade Any accuracy to this perception? They were both really bare bones, so I messed around with a loop guitar pedal and I came up with this sound that worked when played over the top so I recorded both tracks in one take then added a few weird noises and delays and stuff.


Currently putting together the follow up to ‘s critically acclaimed I Wasn’t Born To Lose Youtheir first long player in seventeen years. Or imagine subtly slipping it into the playlist on a road-trip -you’ll be the envy of all your friends!

Also, the new Blonde Redhead stuff is sounding great. Then at the end of the year both bands released them all as compilation albums, which is good in a way as it alleviates the pressure of having to put together a full album.

Adam Franklin has been making music in several guises – most notably as the singer, guitarist, and songwriter in Swervedriver – for the best part of thirty years. That song first appeared on the On Parole album and it’s basically a collection of the first recordings Lemmy made with Motorhead after he left Hawkwind and got the band together. Lubomyr Melnyk – Fallen Trees. I wish we really had won it! I’ll take you up on that. I had a bit of spare time so I thought maybe I should go and record something even if it is somebody else’s song.
