Interview: The Hold Steady

Wandering through the winding corridors backstage at Glasgow’s Garage, qmunicate encounter Craig Finn, the frontman with American rockers The Hold Steady.

In interview he’s thoughtful and intelligent, debating the similarities between the congregation and the rock show; and gazing back over ten years with a band that has seen him go from Brooklyn down-and-out to one of rock n’ roll’s foremost laureates. 1,003 more words

Live Review: The Hold Steady / The So So Glos at Bristol 02 Academy, 22nd of October

The Hold Steady are one of those bands you sort of have to see live; it’s all very well listening to rapturous reports from people who’ve been, but until you actually behold the mighty five piece in action, channelling classic rock chops with punk rock energy, any account is going to be somewhat lost in translation. 1,034 more words
