In Episode 23 of the NWA Podcast series, we talk to Ian Rogers, who performs and records as part of two Brisbane projects, No Anchor and Ambrose Chapel.
No Anchor formed in Brisbane in 2007, playing their own unique variation of ‘sludge doom’ with two bass guitarists and a drummer. To date they have recorded three albums, most recently the acclaimed ‘Real Pain Supernova’. Ambrose Chapel is Ian’s laptop doom solo project – the rare output to date includes appearances on two New Weird Australia compilations, Volume Six and Bleak Metal.
Ian was in Sydney as part of a a research project titled ‘Popular Music & Cultural Memory’, and we talk the opportunity to have him in the studio to discuss his musical output and forthcoming projects. He also brought along new material from No Anchor as well as an exclusive unreleased track from Ambrose Chapel titled ‘A Small Return To A Big Nothing’.
The interview was originally broadcast on 16th February 2012.
