Our interview with Boys On The Radio can be found here, the new project from Lovedrug's Michael Shepard.
I would say what balanced out Lovedrug, as far as the writing was concerned, was the other guys in Lovedrug were very much more into the indie side of music, the cooler, underground music. I was always kind of the pop guy who brought some of the hookier stuff to the music. So when I sat down to do a record by myself, essentially I’m writing pop songs. I’ve been going through this huge ‘80s thing lately. I was largely influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, stuff like that that I grew up loving, kind of writing from a modern standpoint but with a little bit of that...

Our interview with Lovedrug can be found here.
From the InterviewIf I’m going to write a love song, for instance, I don’t want to use the typical metaphors and clichés everyone else uses that you hear on the radio every single day that everyone’s sick of. I want to talk about it in a different way. Maybe I’m going to set it within a story about something that’s got nothing to do with a typical love story. I’m just always trying to think outside the box.

It takes some serious stones to cover the Pixies. And it takes some serious talent not to fall on your face doing it. So does Lovedrug make the cut with their cover of “Where Is My Mind?” Head to their AP.net profile to stream their rendition and sound off in the replies.

One of our users recently wrote up a Lovedrug show review.
Show ReviewIt's a hometown show for Lovedrug, a band that has suffered as victims to both burglars and arsonists, and to the music industry itself. With a stolen and burnt trailer and van combo years behind them, the band has returned to the bare-bones approach of doing-it-yourself: no-label, no problem.
