The interviews are back after a long layoff. Find out about a great local musical artist and one of the whackier bands from the 90s. Also, films, politics and bar-owning.
Geoff Douville is an interesting and alive mind. I went to talk with him using the Egg Yolk Jubilee as a jumping off point. Egg Yolk showed up on my radar in the early 90's and they had a mad frantic style and were composed of some very expressive locals and, of course, featured Jeff playing electric guitar in a style not so commonly heard in the directions that they seemed to be headed. Then I found out about his fascinating film work with Paul Grass. He's also an owner of the Lost Love Lounge in the Marigny neighborhood in New Orleans.
Jeff is very good at elucidating opinions and he is one of the few folks amidst the list of interviewees that is really from New Orleans, not transplanted. There is an interesting long view about the city, and its art and music world that seems to emerge from that perspective.
