Epic-length Real Groove magazine interview w/ Duncan Greive (transcript)

Golden Axe – The Transcript
Fri, 03 Sep 2010 by Duncan Greive

After over a decade together in one form or another we felt it was high time Real Groove chased down synth-noise duo Golden Axe for an interview. Composed of Real Groove's own Chris Cudby and Daif King, the pair are featured in September’s Real Groove in support of their superb new album Fantasy Footwork. But the constraints of magazine pages being what they are we feel compelled to give you the full transcript of their conversation with Duncan Greive, a sprawling hour-long interview conducted amidst the pop-cultural rubble at Golden Axe’s New North Rd HQ.

Duncan: When did you guys meet?

Daif: We’re totally both from Beach Haven. How specific do you want to get?

Duncan: Very specific. I want the day, I want first impressions.

Chris: All I can remember is I was hanging around Daif at Birkenhead College quite a bit, and he had a bit of a Lou Reed look going on – (sun)glasses, longish black hair, listening to, I don’t know, some (HLAH) music. I remember Daif and Daif’s friend James gave me a lift into town.

Duncan: How old were you at this stage?

Chris: Probably 17. Quite old.

Duncan: Well, you know, also quite young.

Chris: Yeah, true.

Daif: I remember there was that party. Everything was going really well, everyone was having a good time. Through shared friends, we didn’t really know each other, then all these rugby heads showed up and started to ruin the party, as they do, and we found ourselves talking about Japanese noise for some reason. It was really, really weird.

Chris: Japanese noise can end up forming strong friendship bonds.

Duncan: And here you are. My very limited knowledge of Birkenhead is that it’s not a haven of Lou Reed-looking types who listen to Japanese Noise. How did this happen?
