NO BODY’S DRIVING

AHEAD OF TAU CROSS’ APPEARANCE AT ROADBURN, WE LOOK BACK AT THE MAKING OF AMEBIX’S FINAL ALBUM, AND ALL THE EVENTS LEADING UP TO WHAT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE GREATEST COMEBACK RECORDS EVER. ROB ‘THE BARON’ MILLER TOLD US THIS MOST AMAZING OF TALES – LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ‘SONIC MASS’ AS IT CAME TO BE, IN THE WORDS OF ITS MAIN PROTAGONIST

AMEBIX RE-ARISES

“I was here on the Isle of Skye and I was approached by a fella called Roy Wallace, who was doing a documentary for Ian Glasper’s book, ‘The Day The Country Died’. I had already talked to Ian and we had agreed I’d have a look through a lot of Amebix stuff that I have, lots of unknown material which would be good to make public. The band has always been subject of a lot of conjecture and rumours, and there’s never been much hard factual evidence out there about us. Most people just knew our records, it was a very obscure and cult band, which is also kind of cool obviously. At one point Roy and I realised it would be interesting to do a whole programme about Amebix, it was shaping up as a quite interesting project, and this was the beginning of what would end up as the ‘Risen’ video documentary. Then Roy asked if it would be possible for us to play some songs. I told him it wouldn’t be very possible – Stig [Maximus, guitarist] was still kind of in the world he was living in, Spider [original drummer] had tinnitus so he was unable to play, so I had always written that off as an impossibility.

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are certain times in history that will always remain special in your heart throughout your life. People often talk about the first time they have seen a certain band and I am no exception. It’s been a blessing to have had the opportunity to see so many bands in my life and, if pushed, I could recount many. After a number of false starts to actually see Neurosis in a live setting, I remember finally getting the chance to see them for the first time at Dudley JB’s with Today Is The Day (featuring Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon) and Voivod (with Eric Forrest). The hall was cavernous, certainly not overly busy in terms of punters, and yet the sonics that blasted through the speakers that night could not have sounded any more apocalyptic. Truly jawdropping and, frankly, life-changing. I know I am not the only one who has experienced similar and for that reason, it is a pleasure to celebrate Neurosis’ 30th anniversary with a cover feature that covers the band’s continuing career. José Carlos Santos has excelled himself as always in producing a fantastic article with Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till and I truly hope you love reading it. Elsewhere it’s always a pleasure to chat to Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower and now of his new band Memoriam – please flick to the news pages to read about the new band now! And of course, plenty of other cool-as-fuck bands to read about and enjoy. See you next month! Adios DARREN SADLER
