Revolt of the Apes’ interview with Dead Meadow 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:

Can you recall what the first album you ever bought with your own money was, or perhaps that first album that you ever begged your parents for? What attracted you to that music in the first place? How do you feel about it today?

Steve: Led Zeppelin 4. It was so dark and mysterious to me. Really the first album I bought myself and didn’t just steal from my older brother. It will always give me the creepy, exciting feeling when listening to it. Now knowing the history, you can really hear the haunted manor house they recorded those sounds in.

What has been the biggest shift in either your listening habits or musical appreciation between your youth and today?

Steve: Now I don’t have the time to really dig into an album like when I was younger. It’s unfortunate but sometimes the love of music that makes you want to play and get “involved” also fills up your free time, relieving you of those precious moments when you could get lost in tone and melody. The one thing that has stayed the same is if I like something, I want to listen to it over and over again, at least in the background these days.


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.
