As I understand it can piss him off to see his label history be reduced to three bandnames, I think he fails to perceive the break those three represent and the impact on the scene. They set off a style that resemble neither Autopsy's nor, obviously no band's with a Punk-ish attitude, like Electro Hippies or the likes...

Very good interview though. When you were a young adult in the 80ies, in England, and very pobably belonging to the working class, being a far left-wing anti-war activist was kind of an natural stance. Almosta miracle that he came to support Melo/gothic death doom bands!

Yes, quite nice interview, but I do not get his irritation of the "Peaceville Three" as I believe this is used only in a doom metal context, not in the context of his entire label.

But nevermind, the label is still quite great, I love their top notch reissues of the back catalogue and I'm considering buying the book, it seems like a good read.


Btw speaking about label-books, has anyone read the 4AD bio-book, the label is certainly with an interesting history and Martin Aston seems like a unique guy, but I've read feedback that the book is too "dry"?
