Interview:2008-Elegy

What do you mean, symbolically, by The Rule of Thirds, which is first of all a principle of photographic composition  ? It was the rule of photographic composition that I was initially thinking of as, being a photographer myself and designing most of the Death In June CD/LP sleeves and promo photos over the years, I have based many, many of my photos I’ve taken for Death In June and other projects on this but then it soon dawned on me that it had other connotations for me and others….

Interview:2008-D-Side

“The Rule of Thirds” seems to illustrate the most classic appearances of your songwriting, in relation with the vision you’ve put on folk music. Did you since the beginning wish to touch this very minimal ans acoustic aspect of the music ? You’re correct in respect that I think I’ve been gradually deconstructing Death In June over this 21st Century. Certainly, in the live arena and now, on record. But, also there appear to be so many groups now, either consciously or unconsciously, sounding like ‘classic’ Death In June that I…

Interview:2008-Black49

Douglas, half a year has passed since the release of “The Rule Of Thirds”. How was this album received? Are you happy with the reactions? TROT was received extremely well, has sold very well and I’m happy and surprised by most of the critical reactions. I thought it would be a ‘difficult’ album for a lot of people at first listen but I had faith in it, like previous Death In June recordings and that was more than enough. In fact, new listeners have been gained and I’ve been reviewed…

Interview with Douglas P. and Tony Wakeford about the Crisis era (Aldo Chimenti for Rockerilla) 1.Why after 3 decades did you decide stopping the blackout and talking again about your early punk experience with Crisis? Well Doug has always handled the Crisis side of things and even after all this time it still seems to have a kind of life of its own. It makes sense to have our perspective on it and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality (not sure thetas the right word!) of the final concert….

Interview with Douglas P. and Tony Wakeford about the Crisis era (Aldo Chimenti for Rockerilla) 1.Why after 3 decades did you decide stopping the blackout and talking again about your early punk experience with Crisis? We appear to have become more relaxed about an aspect of our joint past that was for many years a difficult memory to lose. Besides, with the various CD reissues of different Crisis releases including the new ‘Ends!’ CD of our final concert supporting Magazine and Bauhaus in May, 1980 it also seemed appropriate to…

Interview:2008-D-Side48-Tony

Have you participated, in one way or another to the release of “Ends!” ? Only in being the skinny speed freak that played on it. This was very much down to Doug’s ideas and hard work. The fact to release this last concert can let suppose that this moment of your carreer has kept an importance in your mind. What kind of remembrance do you keep today from the end of this project, what does it represent in your soul ? To be honest even with the nostalgic glow of being slim…

Interview:2008-D-Side48-Douglas

How came the idea to release “Ends!”? A number of factors led to this writing of possibly the final chapter to the story of my first group Crisis. The American release in 2005 of the compilation album called ‘Holocaust Hymns’ was a success and, in turn, it’s led to an invitation to contribute the track ‘UK’79’ to another compilation album being prepared by Rough Trade/V2 that will also feature people like Neil Young, The Beat, Woody Guthrie, The Smiths and The Byrds! It’s very nice to be recognised so many…

Interview:2008-Elegy56-Tony

You met each other in 1975. How exactly ? Well, if my memory is correct it was on a coach to London from Woking to attend a anti-Fascist event. As neither of us had comb overs or beards i think we kind of gravitated together. As shows « UK79 », chosen for our cd sampler, most of Crisis music was very genuine punk rock. Did you feel close to other punk bands of the time ? Not really. I suppose on the political level it was the The Clash. I think both Doug and…

Interview:2008-Elegy56-Douglas

You met each other in 1975. How exactly ? I think it was about late 1975 at either an anti-fascist demonstration or a meeting of leftist groups in Woking, my home town. By then Tony and I were involved in different Trotskyist groups and we were probably obliged to turn up at these meetings no matter how boring they normally were. Because we were the youngest representatives there of the new far left we got to talking. If my memory serves me well, and it may not, we were also both…
