Ian Svenonius Week Pt 7 – Interviews

Nearly a month after Ian Svenonius Week started it is coming to an end.

I’m not going to spend ages talking about the things Svenonius says.  I’m sure that I will be coming back to some of the ideas and themes he talks about in the future, but for now I’ll keep it brief.  If you like hearing people pontificating about pop and punk and rock and roll, art and life then you could do a lot worse than reading, watching or listening to some of the interviews he gives.

Get on your favourite search engine and get exploring.  You could start here (some fast forwarding necessary, especially at the start).

Ian Svenonius on The Kojo Nnamdi Show

17 minutes’ in he starts talking about the American idea of ‘Rock Camp’, and how the quality is higher than ever, but the “ideology and the other things that make the art form or other medium interesting” is missing.  This is a big theme of mine that I will have to come back to, not least due to the presence of the ACM here in Guildford.

Ian Svenonius Week is now over, but I will be coming back to him again and again, if only to take his words as the starting point for some of my own ideas.
