The Dark Stuff Podcast 112: Ringo Deathstarr


For episode 112, I bring you my interview with Austin, Texas band Ringo Deathstarr. Ringo Deathstarr's music is a loud mixture of shoegaze, Noise pop, indie rock, and psychedelic rock. 

The interview was conducted in the band's dressing room at The Waiting Room in Omaha. RD was playing in town as the opener for Peter Murphy. I spoke to guitarist/singer Elliott Frazier, bassist/singer Alex Gehring, and drummer Daniel Coborn. The trio discusses how the band was formed, the legal consequences of the band's name, and the making of the current album, God's Dream. As with many other episodes of the Dark Stuff, the band Swervedriver enters the discussion. Turns out, Adam Franklin of Swervedriver plays on a song on the current Ringo Deathstarr album! 

In between segments of the interview, I put in some snippets of music from Ringo Deathstarr. It's just a tease. You need to pick up the records ASAP.
