The Victory Column of Enduring Freedom is a monument to the notion of victory in the war in Afghanistan. It is a reference to Emperor Trajan’s column in the forum in Rome which records his campaigns in Dacia, modern-day Romania, through relief sculpture scenes spiralling up the column. The form of the spiralled column has been re-used and reinterpreted through history as an icon of victory, perhaps most notably for the victory column of Napoleon’s Grand Armée in Place Vendôme, Paris, made from captured Russian and Austrian cannons.

The story of The Worley Gig is a long and winding road of various print and online media that have all come and gone before this blog made its debut ten years ago, in June of 2003. The Gig, which was originally so christened by writer Tim Hall, originated in print in the late 1990s as a local nightlife and music column for an alternative, downtown monthly published here in Manhattan called the New York Hangover. When The Hangover went out of print, The Gig moved to the online version of Seattle’s Pandemonium Magazine (aka Pandomag) where it enjoyed a triumphant three year run before that site went belly up, at which time we were adopted by a startup entertainment and artist development website called Starpolish. And that, as they say, is history.
While a selection of Worley Gig columns and Musician Interviews I did while at Starpolishhave continued to be archived on that site, the interview links all changed when Starpolishbecame Tiwary Entertainment Group a few months back. Earlier today, I searched and scoured the new TEG site to find those archived articles and rebuild the links for inclusion in this sites’ Interview Archives page.
