Guff: An interview with Jeffrey Lewis

May 12, 2009


The last time the Comic Cast did acid we went insane . . . and interviewed anti-folk singer/songwriter and comic book artist Jeffrey Lewis! Lewis has several great albums under his belt  including City & Eastern Songs with his brother Jack, 12 Crass Songs – a collection of songs by the anarchist punk band Crass, reworked by Jeffrey, not to mention his brand new album EM ARE I.  His comic book series Fuff is currently on it’s seventh issue. We met up with Jeffrey before his gig in Dublin to talk about his comics, his thesis on Watchmen and doing live music videos on stage. Enjoy!

(Since this interview is a bit shorter than usual, we also review X-Men Origins: Wolverine and dish out some bang-up-to-date Irish comics news)

Wrong: An interview with the Eclectic Micks

March 16, 2009


This week the Comic Cast is delighted (and slighty aroused) to be talking to not one, but SIX of Ireland’s top comic artists. Seated at the table are Stephen Mooney (Angel; After the Fall), Stephen Thompson (Star Trek; New Frontier, Presidential Material: John McCain), Nick Roche (Transformers, Doctor Who), Will Sliney (Farscape), Bob Byrne (Mr. Amperduke, 2000AD) and Declan Shalvey (Frankenstein, Hero Killers). We’re obliged to tell you that several comments are made during the podcast which you may find offensive or, if you’re anything like us, will enduce you to weep salty tears of excruciating laughter. This one’s a real gem. Enjoy!
