Revolt of the Apes’ interview with the great Jacco Gardner is up now at the official Austin Psych Fest 2014 website. Read the entire interview there, and look for the complete text to show up here in the very near future. Here’s an excerpt:

What can you tell us about the origin of both the song and the album title, “Cabinet of Curiosities”? We think of the term as being a precursor to museums – have you ever had a musical inspiration spawn directly from a museum visit? If you could pick one song made by someone else to be on permanent display in a museum, what song would you choose and why?

Well, I really like the idea of explorers exhibiting their discoveries in a cabinet of curiosities, especially the ones that do not exist, like bones put together in the wrong way, resulting in a strange and non-existent animal. What I like about that is that the imaginary world kind of blends in with reality. I didn’t get the idea directly from a museum visit but it definitely has something to do with museums I visited in my life. I’d choose “The Truth Is Not Real” by Sagittarius because it blends with reality in a way for me. Of course every song changes the way you perceive reality but this one in another way.


Revolt of the Apes is pleased, stoked and chuffed to support Austin Psych Fest 2014 through a series of interviews with many of the artists involved, answering the kind of ridiculous questions you’ve come to know and – maybe – love. Many more coming soon.
