Interview with Louise Le May

Interview with Janet Beveridge Bean (Eleventh Dream Day)

Eleventh Dream Day have certainly been no strangers to these pages over the last twelve or so years - for which this writer makes no apologies.  As a quintessential gang of underground rock survivors, the Chicagoans should by rights always be mentioned in the same breath as Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo when it comes to carving out a consistent, … [Read more...]
