Great Interview! Much Thanks Ivan.

I like the comment Toby made about "Moonchild" What some may consider "a group of musicians aimlessly noodling around" to others is great music... it's called perception! Go Moonchild!  Big%20smile

I'm looking forward to the next album and i'm glad to see that they've joined Hydrahead.

That's great news for me; I think "Dowsing..." is the best example of his work thus far and I hope he can continue to progress away from metal structure. I get the feeling that Kayo Dot will be breaking still more rules with their music.

(I have similarly high hopes for Fantomas who so far have impressed me most with Delirium Cordia, where the thrash influences hardly surfaced.)

I don't know, I've always thought that the Neurosis influence was so obvious that it did not need to be pointed out. However, we must give credit to Isis and Pelican for not merely copying their sound.

Neurisican means Neurosis, Isis and Pelican - Great concept.

So can I call myself a Neurisican fan?

"Both bands sound very much like Neurosis,who they claim as a direct influence"

I did not know that. I can hear the influences but I wasn't aware that they said they were. So now I can be at peace when saying there is a certain similarity between them. (I got laughed at when saying this to some friends).

Sorry, I should have explained that clearer. It's my fault.

And Neurosis was around 11 years before MotW.

Gotcha.

Sorry about that,I misunderstood the post.

Neurisican means Neurosis, Isis and Pelican - bands who rip them off. I don't remember hearing it before the interview. Clever, huh?

It's nice to see there are people who enjoy Toby Driver's music on this site. I hope some people found out about them after reading the interview.

Awesome inteview.  I listened to the mOTW sample a while back at PA and it made me want to buy all the mOTW albums.  They also have free mp3s of Kayo Dot at their site which are good as well.

I have a question though,

"I think often when other people set up shows for us, they tend to put Neurisican bands on the bill, which is annoying;"


What does Neuriscian mean?
