Written by Matteo Sedazzari

Andy Weatherall and I didn't always see eye to eye until around 1992 when I climbed onto the decks at “Bagley’s Studio's", whilst he was playing. Something then just clicked with us and he agreed to do an interview. An ideal time to speak to Andy as he was leaving the Boys Own fanzine and embarking on various projects.

PEOM was always optimistic that live music in the UK would reign again; in a way we were right


Deep Joy the Beautiful Song If any of you read PEOM No 2, you would have noticed that Willie the Wolf stated 1990 will be the year of the band.

Danny Rampling - Archive Interview : From PEOM

Written by Matteo Sedazzari

danny rampling zani 6.1988 was an important year in terms of music and fashion, there was an exciting counter culture emerging, called "Acid House", following in the tradition of Mods of the mid 60's, the hippies of the late 60's and the punks of the 70's, England was buzzing again and there was a media frenzy.

Fashion in the mid 80's, was very conservative and not really saying anything. Then there was a slight flirt with 70's fashion, and all of sudden people were dressing down, jeans, trainers, smiley tee-shirts and bandannas, topped with yells of "acid!" Getting drunk was now not the done thing, there was a new drug in town called Ecstasy; "American House wives choice." And by God, they were good.

Dizzie Hites -Archive Interview -From PEOM

Written by Matteo Sedazzari



dizzie hites zani 1In the winter of 1989, Rap, was not seen as mainstream music and was  still low on radio play lists. However artists like Bomb the Bass with Neneh Cherry with the evocative Buffalo Stance ,  and Mark Moore of S-express were helping to develop the UK urban sound.
In 1988, obscure records were surfacing and doing the rounds on the decks in Acid House/Balearic clubs. Would I find Love by Dizzie Hites was one such record, which  was being played on a regular basis at the clubs which I was frequenting.

Ian Curtis – Remembered Thirty Two Years On

Written by Collective
/ian curtis matteo sedazzari zani 1

In two albums and five singles Ian Curtis managed to bring us all into his world. I was about twenty when he died I loved Joy Division as did Bobby Gillespie. But could have Ian Curtis have lived with the massive success that was coming his way, if he hadn’t had committed suicide, who knows ?  But Dead Souls, Isolation and Decades best describe the world that Ian inhabited.
 
In addition, he also summed up the seminal Factory Records in many ways, somehow Creation Records managed to do this without anybody dying. Factory Records had a death in their history and Ian Curtis was their biggest star really and still is. Off the top of my head, I think there have been now four films about Ian Curtis and Factory Records that says it all.
