Extra! Extra!

The April issue of Chicago Innerview is now available online. My contribution this month was a feature piece on the band Wire.

One of my questions to guitarist Colin Newman couldn't make it in the final article, but I thought his response was great. It gave me a sense of the guy and his feelings towards the musical scene he grew up in.

Chris Castaneda: Having come from a music scene that produced bands like The Jam, Buzzcocks, The Clash and the Sex Pistols, what remains a driving force behind Wire still making music?

Colin Newman: Probably not being like any of the above (insert smiley face).

*Yes, he actually used a smiley face in his e-mail response.
