    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 […]

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 […]

    Interview with Joan As Police Woman
