Band-juggling JAKE ROBERTSON (Ausmuteants, Frowning Clouds, Hierophants, Leather Towel, Drug Sweat) interviews Goner Records founder ERIC FRIEDL before the debut Aussie tour for his iconic garage-punk band Oblivians (pictured).

Except maybe “confusing and angering adults,” nothing is more fundamentally hip-hop than repurposing whatever you have at your disposal to make something new and dope.
