FPS Are back with a new record North Atlantic on React Records with as much energy, heart and power as ever after the untimley passing of singer and Hardcore legend Peter Amdam. Being a friend of the band and having met the guys in Oslo not long after peter’s passing I couldn’t imagine id ever be writing about a new record. But its here and its incredible, what follows is a watts app conversation me and Espen had over a couple of weeks on and off when we had time away from work, Almost totally unedited.

Had such a great time talking with Brian over the last few weeks, Battery are one of my all time favourites and one of my closest friends also feels the same way about them.
Needless to say seeing them In just over a week will be killer.
Thanks To Adam at Rev for Help as always.
Thanks to Freddy Twice And Greg Brown for some of the photography.
Also Adam at Rev For always Hooking it up!
I did this interview with Curt just before christmas but literally haven’t had chance to lay it out.
So its still relatively new Enjoy..Ed

If I were to sit down and try to come up with just a handful of people I would want to interview for the zine, no doubt this name would be at the top of the list. Never thinking it would happen, I wrote to Dischord a few times to request an interview to no avail. I gave it one last try and I not only got a reply from Ian but he agreed to do the interview. What was going to be a 30 minute interview wound up being almost 3 times that. This is the interview in its entirety, I didn’t edit it down for fear of not representing him or his answers properly. It’s long but it was a great interview. This is also the first time these pictures have ever been published. I took them at some “secret” shows at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ in the early 90s. Enjoy!
