New Weird Australia Podcast #14, Axxonn – Interview
From 2009-2012, the New Weird Australia Podcast featured selected interviews and in-studio recordings from my FBi radio show, as well as live performances from events, video interviews and more.
AXXONN is the self-described “pop/synth/doom/electronic music project” from Brisbane’s Tom Hall. Originally exploring territories solely of doom and drone in his earlier EP releases, his debut album ‘Let’s Get It Straight’ deployed a barrage of wider influences – from 80s mullet-metal, abstract electronica, hardcore noise, synth-pop and the blackest of black metal. In November 2010, I talked to Tom during the album launch tour, shortly before he was due to take to the stage in Hobart and ahead of dates in Sydney, Geelong, Melbourne and Perth, rounded off with a lap of honour in Brisbane.
