An issue that was hard to make it happen. Finally here you are, with a revision to the Gaslight Anthem. Their career, their four albums, their present, an interview with Brian Fallon...

That was an interesting article. I don't think I understood all of it because the English wasn't very good but content wise there was some good stuff. Although for a while towards the beginning I was wondering if this was an article about Gaslight or Springsteen.

Didn't like the article one bit, but I always enjoy reading interviews with Brian so thank you.

Pretty impressive English considering hte author is a Spaniard, having said that, I didn't really like the tone of the interview or the writing, but I think that's just because it was lost in translation....

yeah it was tough to tell what the hell was going on. that interviewer seemed to have balls though. and did Brian say he's already recorded his album with Ian?
Based on the clarity of this article, who the fuck knows

I know I was so confused. I think that part was translated poorly. He probably meant like he already did Elsie with Ian, as in he already has done something other than a TGA record, and Ian was a part of it. But yeah, very confusing article. I liked the bits that I could understand and that weren't all about Springsteen (I love Bruce but that was quite a lot of him for a TGA article).

I only got about halfway through the article. Kind of hard to read on a screen.

Thinking about if it was purpose to call the label "SideOneMummy" on the third page about Gaslight. Very Happy Very Happy Except there's too many Springsteen comparisons, an interesting article with a lack of new information..

There are a few statements I'm wondering about (maybe that's a mistake in translation)

Concerning Mercury Brain says: "What I can tell you is that I never had this support before.We can go and ask and they tell us what we can do and what we can't..."

Even if Brian relativizes that statement a few lines later, I regard it as really critical if a label decides (or just influences) about the fact in which direction a band goes. A few month before Handwritten was released Brian said that they didn't care about if fans would like the new songs or not, and just created them however the band wanted the songs to be or not to be. But for me the recent statement hints that the band might not have to look what fans like while writing songs anymore, but what the label likes...and that's not the way I expect a label to "support" a band.

Additionally I find it weird that Brian says "I see they are made to rock arenas" concerning the new songs. Does he make new songs in order to fill arenas with 'em, but does not want the band "to be huge" as he said in another recent interview with theage.com?

Hope you get what I mean, 'cause my english ends here..

It seems Mr. Fallon is finding a way to confuse us all and keep us guessing at the moment

For the first part I don't think he means they're telling them "no you can't write a song like that, or you have to write like this". I think he means like "you can access a studio that has ___. or you can hire some people to play strings for the record. no you can't fill arenas yet in the US but you can open for arena level bands." etc. I don't know if that's what he means, but he definitely doesn't mean the label's bossing them around, he'd never portray that as a good thing. And they're not looking at what fans like because they have to write for themselves or they'll just mess it all up. If they start trying to meet other people's wants and needs nothing good will come of it. They've said that for a long time.

I think for the last part about arenas he means the songs are BIG enough to fill areans. Like they have a big enough rock sound. I don't know if he wants to be huge or not, I'm guessing not based on recent interviews but that doesn't mean they can't write songs that are meant for arenas.
