Gary Pearson

Here’s the interview with Gary Pearson of the legendary and newly reformed NWOBHM band Vardis

Welcome to another of our ‘Interviews with…’

In the chair this week is Gary Pearson, the drummer of the newly reformed Vardis. Gary talks about the early days when he joined the band back in the late 70s, the music scene as it was back then in Wakefield, the time Vardis spent in London playing gigs at the legendary Marquee Club as well as the music festival that is now part of Heavy Metal folklore, ‘The Heavy Metal Holocaust’.

It’s a fascinating insight into the group and how reforming the band came about. Listen to the interview here.

Enjoy!!
Cheers
MJ

Less talk, more rock!!

 

Part 2 of the John McCoy interview is now available via #mixcloud

Hello again.

Part 2, the final part of the interview with John McCoy, is now available. We ended Part 1 on the subject of Gillan’s last gig at Wembley. If you haven’t heard Part 1 yet, you can do so by clicking this link here. It’s a great listen – it’s full of rock n roll history.

In Part 2, I began by asking John how this and previous experiences have come to shape his approach to the work he does in the studio when producing bands. The hugely popular Serbian band Riblja Čorba reached #1 with a John McCoy produced album, and John talks about the challenges working with non-English speaking musicians. He also talks about his association with Angel Air Records www.angelair.co.uk

It all makes, I hope, for an entertaining listen into the life of one of Britain’s most talented and recognisable musicians / record producers.

You can listen to Part 2 here.
