2008 into 2009: Black Spiders

The Black Spiders are the freshest old shit you’ll be hearing in 2009. They’ve been likened to wanking in church whilst listening to Sabbath. Add “on acid” to that and we’ll punch you in the face. We spoke to Spider. What a mint name.

What was your highlight of 2008?
European tour dates with the mighty Airbourne – Amazing!!

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Missing Melvins and Big Business on tour and the ATP ‘Nightmare Before Xmas’

Who in 2008 deserves a good kicking?
Well, Axl Rose deserves a kick up the arse, though the London Borough that resides over the Astoria need sorting out after the closure of that area. For what?

Who had the best comeback: Metallica, AC/DC, or Guns N’ Roses?
That’s a good question….I think Metallica’s album (personally) is a step in the right direction. I felt a little disappointed by both Guns and DC albums, though both are still good. Not great. DC seem to have great success with it though, regards album sales/ chart placing and the sell out World tour. It’ll be easier to compare once the Guns N’ Roses dates are out.

What are you most looking forward to in 2009?
Touring and releasing an album.

What band should everyone find out about in 2009?
Steven Hawkwind.

What do you want for Christmas?
5 Gold Rings!

Who do you want to get under the mistletoe?
Vikki Blows.

Where will you be on New Year’s Eve?
Somewhere, out of the cold, out of my mind…
