Featured Artist interview: Atlantic Fadeout (E71)

About: Atlantic Fadeout 

"Atlantic Fadeout’s debut, Better Run of Bad Luck, plays like a weathered book of short stories. It’s packed with tear-stained details, well-constructed jabs, hopeful dreams, and colorful battle cries. Abigail Henderson powers through every song with an intense vigor that most performers would envy. Amy Farrand, Chris Meck and Dutch Humphrey back Henderson’s voice with polished, bluesy ballads and amped-up power anthems. The album’s first track, “Making Out With Strangers,” beckons the listener to pull up a bar stool and take in a brew, while the album’s title track, “Better Run of Bad Luck,” tells subtly sassy stories about the Kansas City scene, hellhole bars and friends. The band roars into “Tra La La” and then weaves soul into “Break Your Heart.” Better Run of Bad Luck has a slight tinge of darkness, but it doesn’t stifle the powerful stories that Atlantic Fadeout tells."

1).What do you think will happen to music in 50 years?
I dunno, it will be played,purchased, listened to, shared, stolen, given away, laughed at, cried over, cherished and despised I suppose.

2).What are the main difficulties for being a musician in your country?
Everything is difficult. Mostly, I imagine the same difficulties musicians face everywhere. A bunny dies everyday and someone gets a lucky foot, you don't see me cryin' about it.

3).Would you like your children to become musicians, just like you do? Why yes or why not?
I would love for my children to learn to listen and appreciate what all music can deliver even the most soul-less of bastards among us. To discover it on their own. To love it for themselves. Why? angels trumpets and devil's trombones.

4).What is the instrument of your dream? (type/brand/model)
A 1987 model Cherry Brunette Pale Skinned Alto. Roughly 36-24-36.

5).If you could raise one music idol from the dead – who would it be?
Joe Strummer.
