Editor’s Afterword: This issue came out in my last semestre of high school. The Trumans Water and Pavement interviews (a particularly good picture of them in the Crooked Rain Crooked Rain era) were contributed by Jason. The Slowdive and Th’ Faith Healers interviews were arranged by and also written up for Vox. I have to say that the Slowdive interview isn’t substantial at all, as I recall my early ineptness as an interviewer was in full force during that telephone conversation. Springhouse was a New York band, of which the longtime editor of the Big Takeover fanzine was a member. The Big Takeover fanzine was definitely a big early influence on Space Age Bachelor, as it gave me a blueprint of what a music ‘zine should or could be like. Finally, the Moose interview was a real thrill for me at the time. I remember that their album …XYZ was my favorite album at that time, and I got to have a good long telephone conversation with the band’s Russell Yates.
