Editor’s Afterword: This issue was written during my first semestre of my first year of university. It is the first issue done after I’d moved from Calgary to Vancouver. Both the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Trumans Water interviews took place backstage at the old Starfish Room in Vancouver. I spoke to Disco Inferno on the telephone. Jason contributed the interviews with Ween, Pulp, and Jeff Buckley, following the trend in which many of the bigger name interviews would originally have been shorter write-ups in Toronto’s Eye Weekly. SR Chinarro and Beef were both bands on Spain’s Acuarela label, and as such those interviews were probably done via fax/email.
