65daysofstatic – The Fall of Math: ten years later with Paul Wolinski

March 26th, 2014

Come 20 September 2014 and 65daysofstatic‘s debut album, The Fall of Math will be ten years old. It’s an album that thrust an instrumental post-rock band from Sheffield and all of their odd time signatures and samples of film dialogue firmly into the limelight. With radio attention and a lead single that resonated with many, it has led to the band having a healthy career of four more excellent albums, a soundtrack and a collaboration with Robert Smith of The Cure. Not bad. Here, we ask guitarist Paul Wolinski to talk about the album, track by track, ten years on.
