Interviews: Brody Dalle

Image Unbeknownst to many fans, this interviewer included, there was a point when The Distillers almost recorded new music.

"I love The Distillers - I grew up in that band," says lead singer Brody Dalle. "But I also tried to resurrect it and I got Greg Ginn from Black Flag to try and produce some songs with me and Andy (Granelli, drummer) and Tony (Bevilacqua, guitarist) and it just...it just didn't work."

What do you mean it didn't work?

"There wasn't anything there," she recalls. "It didn't feel right…it was like putting a used condom on or something. That's a really crass thing for me to say, but it felt done. There wasn't really anymore for us to do or anymore ideas to share."

And so the band continued to be no more and Dalle continued to create and sing, eventually resulting in her upcoming solo album Diploid Love, coming out on April 28.

Just before rehearsal at an L.A. studio, Dalle spoke to Punknews interviewer Gen Handley about the reunion that almost was, her diverse new album and what's changed with motherhood.

Media: Big D and the Kids Table: “26-Miles of Glory”

Posted by britt on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 3:30 PM (EDT)
Big D and the Kids Table Boston's Big D and the Kids Table have released a new song to mark the one year anniversary of the Boston Bombings.

The track is called "26-Miles of Glory" and can be heard under Read More. Vocalist David McWayne had this to say about the song:

The song's tempo was crafted to have the perfect runner's pace. The lyrics are spoken from the inner thoughts of a female and male while they are participating in the Boston Marathon. The lyrics also follow the route of the Boston Marathon and pay homage to those who lost their lives, the wounded, and those who helped Patriot's Day 2013. We hope 26-Miles of Glory will give the city of Boston and all those who run Marathons all over the world strength and pride. 

The band last released Stomp / Stroll in 2013.
