FCJ Interview: Adam Franklin of Swervedriver

He was too embarrassed to do that. What was the console? Jimmy Hartridge, Paddy [Pulzer], who was the original drummer, and my brother [Graham Franklin], who was the original singer when we were Shake Appeal. Slade had great b-sides too. And [so he] has the engineer rig something up. In Sanctuary Records released Juggernaut Rides, a Swervedriver retrospective and rarities collection.

The main exposure we got back in the day was touring with Soundgarden, when they were doing an album which was breaking and then two years later, the same thing with Smashing Pumpkins. I was watching that DVD about the making of The Joshua Tree and they were just like everybody else, making their little demos at home on four-tracks and then flying the stuff in.

Check it out here. Whats the concept behind Magnetic Morning? There are certainly things I come up with which the guys in Swervedriver would never go for — which makes things easier!

I mean, it depends on who you end up working with.

So hats off to Matt.
