The site tracks down some of my favorite power pop bands who have disbanded, then finds the lead musician(s) involved and has them answer a exit questionnaire. I love the idea that these defunct bands can be re-introduced to “new” power pop fans who never heard of them when they made an impact.
|What made you want to start “The Disbandables”?
MW: I’d been on a quest to get a full set of International Pop Overthrow compilation CDs are they’re always a great source of finding good music that’s new to me. Working my way through them in order I was flagging up stuff I was really liking and more often than not the bands involved had split up. A natural curiosity made me wonder why. I figured I couldn’t be the only one wondering the same thing.
Is it difficult finding and getting in touch with bands that disbanded long ago?
Have you met any artists wanting to reunite their band?
Who’s at the top of the wish list for you to interview?
How often will the site get new interviews?
Thanks Matt. I’ll be looking forward to reading those new interviews.
