Yes, at last a second post ! I knew these tapes were somewhere, I knew I'd be able to find a minute to transfer them... Anyway this is a meeting with Soundgarden in July 1990. They had just released their Louder than Love album, which I'm pretty sure was the first one to come out in France. A real breath of fresh air at the time. They were the first "Seattle band" to make it big of course, which made it all the more fun to notice there was no talk of "grunge" as yet. The press release had fed me the line that the band called their music "zen metal" so we started on that. As can be heard the atmosphere was jolly, and a few interesting thoughts were expressed, eg concerning the way the absence of playing ability can free one's writing abilities.
