Me and Ogre Backstage at a Ministry Concert
Skinny Puppy Vocalist Nivek Ogre (real name Kevin Ogilvie) Turns 48 today! Happy Birthday, Ogre!
People do not return from the dead; but sometimes websites do. The long dead and buried Seattle-based rock and pop culture website, Pandemonium Online, aka Pando Mag Dot Com is now back online as a museum of 90s rock that you can waste literally days perusing. This is very exciting news for me an all of the other great writers who contributed passionately and faithfully to Pandemonium for years, only to have their brilliant work expunged from the web once the site went down in the late 90s.
somewhat not intact is The Worley Gig Archives page, where you’ll find carefully preserved, direct links to the first 39 editions of the rad monthly column that spawned this awesome website, as well as links to a selection of the mind-blowing interviews I conducted for Pandemonium over a span of countless years, including:
Nick Rhodes and Warren Cuccurullo of Duran Duran
The Unband’s Matt Pierce
Christina Martinez of Boss Hog
Anne Dudley and Paul Morley of the Art of Noise
Paul Barker of Ministry
Sponge’s Vinnie Dombrowski
You Am I’s Tim Rogers
Goo Goo Dolls’ Robby Takac
Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy
Jon Crosby of VAST
God Lives Underwater
And my Vintage Jello Biafra Interview from 1997! Woo!
There are numerous other interviews by me on the site, but those links don’t seem to have made it onto the TWG Archives page, so you’ll have to do some real sleuthing to find them (but trust me, it will be worth it)! A good place to start would be to go hope I eventually get all of this work online again and just scroll through looking for my by-line. Enjoy and happy hunting! Pandomag lives!
