ALONG FOR THE RIDE: DENNIS HOPPER AND SATYA DE LA MANITOU

September 25th, 2018

Along For The Ride is a documentary about Dennis Hopper, but it's just as much about someone else: the engimatic Satya De La Manitou, who met Hopper on the commune from Easy Rider—he was part of the commune—and who spent the next forty years of his life as Hopper's right-hand man. Think of him as not just a witness to but a part of film history, or think of him—as director Nick Ebeling does—as a psychedelic Sancho Panza. It's an intimate and charismatic documentary, dedicated fully—like Satya—to the integrity and vision of its subject. Along For The Ride screens on Wed., Sept. 26, at the Regent Theater with an extensive Q&A including Ebeling, Satya De La Manitou, Linda Manz and more—get tickets here! Hat And Beard Press will be releasing the film with a companion book shortly—more info on that here. This interview by Tom Child.

Colm and Hope joined us by phone­—she in California, he in Ireland—to talk cats, castles and the karate lessons that helped change the course of modern music. Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions' new Son Of A Lady EP is out now and they perform on Sat., Oct. 14, at the Fonda and Sun., Oct. 15, at the Desert Daze festival. This interview by Kristina Benson.

TERRY ALLEN: BREAK THINGS THAT ARE FIXED

October 12th, 2016

The first few questions in this interview are about Man Ray, Captain Beefheart and Nancy Reagan because that’s how it works with Terry Allen—that’s art, music and America at its most bizarre and true, and that’s what you’ll find in Juarez and Lubbock (On Everything), two of his best albums and actually two of the best albums ever, really. One day they’ll be considered literature, but for now, they’ve received welcome and lavish reissue on the Paradise of Bachelors label. This interview by Chris Ziegler.
