Viva La Rock!

It's time for another kick ass interview!

Subscribers to my blog may be under the impression that cheesy pop is all I am interested in. That couldn't be further from the truth. Yes, I do have a special place in my heart for boybands and other such cheesy music but I am also a huge fan of rock music. I love music from as far back as the 60's, though 70's and 80's rock is by far my favourite. Some might say this in itself is quite cheesy, but that is beside the point! :p

As it is Music Monday, I wanted to share a very special interview with you. This was the first interview I ever wrote, and with a member of a rather amazing band. Alberto Albis is the man, Viva La Union is the band. Besides being the bass player for Viva La Union, Alberto is a very talented, fun and genine guy. His talents don't just lie with bass playing. He also writes songs and helps to produce and promote  new artists, one of whom I have also interviewed.

Viva La Union is an indie/rock band and has a very distinctive sound. The lyrics, written mainly by the endlessly talented John Cho, have depth and meaning and many are brilliantly catchy. Take a look at this interview with Alberto Albis, have a listen to some of their tracks (links are in the article) and let me know what you think!


  1. Very cool interview! I'll have to check them out.

  2. Oh yeah, this was a cool interview. How awesome it must be getting to talk with new talent!
