Eclectic Mainline 15th September 2010 – Grinderman interview

This week sees the release of the second Grinderman album, smartly titled Grinderman 2.  To celebrate, in my show tonight I spoke to Jim Sclavunos from the band.  If you heard the show you will have heard Jim and I discussing the evolution of Grinderman since the first album, and also the video to the single Heathen Child, which you can see below.  If you then read the rest of this entry, you will be able to listen to a longer version of the interview, which is available as a podcast. 

Here on Untitled Noise we have the full version of the interview with an extra 10 minutes of chat not broadcast in my show, in which Jim tells me his view on modern day press conferences, and we also discuss the Heathen Child video at greater length, as I speculate out of whose bottom a thunderbolt explodes!   Below is the podcast of the full interview.  We started off by discussing press conferences as I thanked Jim for inviting me into their press conference at the ATP Festival when we first met in 2007.
