BAGHEERA: The Text Of Young America

| 2 comments

BAGHEERA is a young band from Liverpool, England. With only the self produced, released, and shared Hollow Home e.p. under its belt, (and under 7000 hits on their Myspace page) it’s safe to say they’re new to the game. But it’s not too hard to see that this band is going places. The as-yet-unsigned trio consists of Tom Cowcher, Sam Twidale and Jacob Silkin. All of whom are students of music at the University of Liverpool, and by the sounds of things they have been paying attention. Tom and Sam took some time away from rehearsals to talk about who they are, perfectionism, and how a young band can sound so accomplished so early in a career. Also included is the link to the Hollow Home e.p. We don’t condone stealing, so understand that the band intended to give this away for free. And enjoy!

Chris Bowman: So first off, this is BAGHEERA from Liverpool, not Missouri.

Tom Cowcher: Yeah, that’s right. I think there’s a Dutch symphonic rock band as well, with the same name. We’re not them.

CB: So there’s three Bagheera’s then?

Sam Twidale: Yeah, maybe.

TC: Maybe more!

Team Submarine: The Text Of Young America

| 2 comments

Nate Fernald and Steve O’Brien are Team Submarine. The New York based comedy duo have recently released a CD called Correctamundo!. They’ve preformed at NYC Sketchfest, San Francisco Sketchfest, The Benson Interruption and have appeared on NPR and right here on TSOYA. They’ve got a great blog and a cool website full of videos and comedy tidbits. They are always preforming in NYC, so please check the live listings on the site. Nate Fernald was out of town, so Steve O’Brien spoke with me about origins, working in pairs, and romantic comedies. Mostly about romantic comedies.

Chris Bowman: How did you meet Nate Fernald?

Steve O’Brien: I went to high school with a guy who ended up going to college with Nate. We didn’t know each other but Nate and I moved out to Chicago at the same time, so our friend Tyler was like- every time I tell this story I feel like I’m telling the story of Nate and I being an old married couple.
