A FUCKING INTERVIEW: Greg Meisenberg of A Fucking Elephant Talks Diddly-Diddly-Doos and Shrimp

Lane Oliver interviews Greg Meisenberg for Godless Noise:

Math rock is one of those genres that totally changed my views on musical structure and songwriting. Bands like Hella, Don Caballero and Battles take conventional songwriting and beat, torture and rearrange it into something completely different than your standard trite metal band. Complex and atypical rhythmic patterns, odd time signatures and angular riffs and melodies are a few characteristics that make math rock and its counterparts such an intriguing listen. One rarely known band in mind that fits the category of math rock is the insane duo of A Fucking Elephant. They have been known to take the characteristics mentioned above and completely bastardize them into something whacked out and exciting. I recently caught up with drummer and vocalist Greg Meisenberg to talk about his involvement in A Fucking Elephant, their eccentric writing process and shrimp.
