AUTOreverse #14, summer 2011 John Gore Cohort Records ‘kirchenkampf’ interviewed by Ian C Stewart
John, thanks for answering a few questions. Let’s start with that old chestnut, influences. Who are your biggest musical influences and why?
If you mean who do I think I want to sound like, that depends on when the release came out. My style has changed a couple of times since I started in 1986.
My earliest experiences with electronic music were Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. I was crazy about anything with synthesizers in it. Continue reading →

SO……DID YOU MISS AUTOreverse?
I did for sure. It was a real eye-opener for me. I had no real idea what was going on in the underground scene. Didn’t even know there was one, to be honest. AUTOreverse was always highly entertaining and provocative. Down in the main to your own personality… Continue reading →
AUTOreverse #14, summer 2011 Jeremy Gluck interview by Ian C Stewart
Let’s start by talking about your musical influences. Who are your biggest influences and why? Who were your early musical influences?
My primary musical influences are actually quite orthodox and considering the character of my electronica tend not to fall into the more predictable categories. This is also because a lot my work expresses a part of myself that I live with but not always from. I grew up with rock music and with rock music I remain, especially Paul Westerberg and Van Morrison. I adore The Beach Boys, The Who, The Stooges, early Bowie, The Smiths and Morrissey. I love cheesy country and trucking music, but also Blue Oyster Cult and The Beatles. However, I enjoy electronic music, usually ambient, and also primo American punk, such as Husker Du and Ramones.
AUTOreverse #14, summer 2011 Carrie Hodges aka Auzel interviewed by Ian C Stewart
HOW/WHERE/WHEN WAS OLD RECORDED? Old was recorded when I was young, in various ways and places, from 1991 to 2003. I was 18 when we recorded the two earliest songs on Chris [Reider]’s crappy second-hand 4 track. We were living with my parents at the time, in a claustrophobic little room. Life kind of sucked. But that was 20 years ago, and I don’t remember much other than being incredibly self-conscious. When Chris had me improvise some singing over a track of his guitar playing, it was nearly impossible for me, and I was practically crying by the end. For the other early song, he and I sang into each other’s mouths. I can only describe it as a kissing didgeridoo. The feeling of the vibrations is what I remember.
AUTOreverse #14, summer 2011 Dave Fuglewicz interviewed by Ian C Stewart
Let’s talk about your musical influences. Who are your biggest influences and why? Who were your early musical influences?
I would have to list Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze’s work of the 1970’s as major influences and a lot of the progressive rock movement of those days. Jimi Hendrix was and is a big influence of my musical direction. That may not be obvious since he was a guitarist, but in the sense of a philosophy of music that is free, experimental and willing to take chances.
