Tape Archive #19: Private interview with Rachel, Nick and Christian on 8 April 1994

This interview was taped at Club Babyhead in Providence, Rhode Island, before Slowdive played their set that night. The interview is approximately 25 minutes long and topics covered include Christian’s pre-Slowdive band Eternal, the suicide of Kurt Cobain (who was found dead earlier that day), their current favourite bands, their songwriting process, tour stories, and whether they prefer cats or dogs. Starting at the six minute mark you can hear the opening band Difference Engine — one of the best American shoegaze bands of the early 90s– playing their set in the distance.
