Well isn’t this neat. As I was telling you the other day… I’ve been on a bit of a Braid kick.  And I remembered interviewing the band during their final tour before splitting up  in mid-1999.  I emailed Discorder Magazine and Chirag found the article and scanned it for me! What a stud.

So there ya go (click the image to make it big)… Braid in 1999 talking to a 19-year-old college radio kid at The Starfish Room months before the breakup.  I can’t remember the exact date of the concert but the interview ran in the June 1999 issue of Discorder.  I also got a copy of that TAKE ACTION Punk rock sampler… neat, advertising works.

The show was rad and the guys were great…. The band would end up splitting up after the summer.  Bob Nanna would form a new group called Hey Mercedes.  Just as the whole emo thing started to swell they’d end up on one of the alpha emo record labels, Vagrant.  They released a couple records including 2003’s Lost Control.
