Mixtape 38 - Come to Grief

Here is the 38th installment of the Dreams of Consciousness podcast, featuring an interview with Come to Grief.

This podcast came as a surprise even to me. I got in touch with the band to do a Q+A interview and fired off an e-mail to drummer Chuck Conlon; little did I know that he would assemble the entire band and record their answers. The audio was so good it seemed like a waste to merely transcribe it, so here it is as a podcast.

The band answered my questions about their origins, their debut EP The Worst of Times, and their feelings about the proliferation of "sludge" as a genre. I also asked a lot of questions about Grief, who I saw back in the day at one of the annual Loud Az Fuck fests held at CBGBs. That may be the best gig I've ever been to, and so I would have been remiss if I didn't ask them about their memories of that day.

My thanks again to the guys in Come to Grief for answering my questions, and to you for listening.
