    Interview with Charlotte Hatherley

    From the Funky Mofo archives. Hey, summer is here! And what best to celebrate than a song about it? Well, that’s probably what Charlotte Hatherley, better known for being the guitarist in Ash, thought. Her new single, titled “Summer” (cunning, eh?), is out on August 9th and she is currently touring intensively with Ash across […]

    Interview with Cajita

    From the Funky Mofo archives. As we’ve just been informed Funky Mofo is part of the “Bristol DIY indie scene”, it seemed logical to introduce our readers to a local DIY delicacies. Enjoy! Funky Mofo: Your website describes you as an ‘Indo-Irish-English Welshman’… sounds like some complex roots you’ve got there! Could we have a […]

    Interview with Bell X1

    From the Funky Mofo archives. Where the Funky Mofo are you and what are you up to? I’m in a dressing room in Liverpool Academy… a simple enough arrangement – a couch, mirrors, Jagermeister (German herbal liqueur). We’re starting the Aqualung support tour tonight. Music In Mouth is your first UK release and yet it […]

    Interview with Sneaker Pimps

      Long before the internet and Myspace, Facebook and Twitter, people used to meet in person and hold civilised conversations. What follows is such an encounter. In November 1997 I met Chris Corner, at the time in Sneaker Pimps, for what turned out to be our first interview – I was to interview him again […]

    Interview with The A.M.

      From the Funky Mofo archive: It’s bound to happen. Having ‘former members of Jeff Buckley’s band’ all over your promotion, the expectancy switches are going to be on full power. My immediate opinion of The A.M was ‘what the hell do they think they’re doing’, I was unimpressed by their recorded offerings and the […]

    Interview with Shlomo

      From the Funky Mofo archive: 16th August 2004: 7h50 in the morning, the postman delivers a parcel. I look at the time and realise I’m 30 years old this minute exactly. Jo opens the parcel and out jumps the new Björk album, Medúlla. I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. After waking […]

    Interview with Sex In Dallas

      From the Funky Mofo archive: The first thing that comes to mind when listening to Sex In Dallas “Around The War” are notes from “Just Can’t Get Enough” (by Depeche Mode for those of you who don’t know). The album crumbles under well pumped beats and electronic rhythms, the vocals taste of the Hexagon, […]

    Interview with Nouvelle Vague

      From the Funky Mofo archives: Concept cover albums are either a superb success or in most cases a novelty idea taken to the point of total cheese. Nouvelle Vague is thankfully a success mixing 60’s style bossa-nova with 70’s/80’s New Wave (yes, it does work!). Funky Mofo exchanged e-mails with one half of Nouvelle […]
