Interview with Germaine Baca-Has (Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa/Old Time Relijun) in Tom Tom Magazine

Back in June, Son Cats played a few dates around New England. One of the most memorable nights was a show with Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa at the 119 Gallery in Lowell, MA. The show was tight. Hermit Thrushes and Ladderlegs totally killed it. When Malaikat Dan Singa started playing their groovy jazz-inflected Indonesian pop, everyone in the crowd was either dancing or hypnotized. Arrington, the frontman, is an incredible performer. Between his throat-singing, microphone-manipulating, and switching between instruments, he held a completely captivated audience. It was, however, difficult for me to look away from the drummer, Germaine Baca-Has. She's amazing!

I was lucky enough to be able to interview Germaine for Tom Tom Magazine, a sweet drumming magazine out of Brooklyn that focuses on female drummers. It's almost too good to be true. Great musicians, photography, everything. If you haven't checked it out already, please do so. Issue No. 4 is where it's at.

The new issue of Caketrain is now taking pre-orders for its November release. Yes, the issue is taking its own orders, it has grown a pair of hands. And has developed into such a looker! This journal is gorgeous. Look at the cover.

Not to judge the book by it, but who wouldn't want to read what's under such a beautiful cover?
