ZG: Glenn Branca Interview
Our latest scan from the journal ZG is an 1981 interview with Glenn Branca conducted around the time of the seminal Lesson No. 1 and The Ascension releases. The Ascension particularly is a huge favourite with us. You may have noticed that we cribbed our flyer images from the same Robert Longo series that Branca used for The Ascension’s cover. It has recently been rereleased by Fortissimo records. You can find an interview with Don Maclean, the man responsible, here.
In a sister piece, to be posted tomorrow, we have conducted a follow up interview in which Branca talks about his indifference to S & M and how dance music is the ‘white bread’ of music.
