March's IOTM: John Malm, Jr.
03/07/08 at 11:03:04
 
Recently, our resident interviewer, Todd, got a chance to speak to ex-manager & Nothing Records label head, John Malm, Jr. John spoke to us about how he got into the business, going to Lucky Pierre shows, and the role he played in getting the 1st PRICK album released. He also gives us some insight into what he’s doing now and where he sees the music industry heading in the not so distant future. We can’t thank him enough for taking the time to speak with us. CLICK HERE and check it out.
 
After reading the interview, please come back and discuss it here Smiley

Hopefully I'm sending some traffic this way. Great interview. I'll probably think of something to discuss later.

Typo. Should have been "closest". Fixed it now.

Enemy is a damn strong term for someone who had such a hand bringing all our favorite artists forward. We don't know what exactly soured Trents relationship with John and after a few cryptic statements, Reznor seemed to want it dropped. We do know that John took some time to clue us in on other things that were probably more comfortable to disclose. It was a very interesting read and I hope more discussion can come from it (preferably on this forum).

That was a great read and John seems like a pretty cool guy. I'll probably check out the acts he plugged pretty soon.

I was pleasantly surprised that this interview even happened. Great job guys.  
 
One thing about this interview that stuck out to me was John's perspective on the whole status of the music industry right now. It seemed pretty accurate or I agreed with it anyways (for the most part). Some of it seemed like a little bit of wishful thinking. But, it was nice to hear his opinion on it. I'm not really sure about the whole video game thing. It is another distraction. I think the whole music scene is just flooded with crap, even more than usual. And it's hard for anyone with taste to find something they like since they have to filter through a lot more stuff.

Ya one of the parts I don't really agree with was the video games/clear channel/mtv mix pulling kids away from seeking out music on their own terms.  While there's a point there, I think the last 5 years has been all about finding your own music.  Call it piracy, but the internet has empowered anyone to really explore their own musical tastes.  And this really trumps, in my opinion, any homogenization of musical tastes the industry attempts.
 
As a 17 year old I was a budding music geek, and I look back now and my musical tastes didn't get much more obscure than prick, placebo, radiohead, Catherine wheel and so on.  And now we complain about the insta-hype a pitchfork 'best new music' shout out creates.  This is progress in the right direction.

Interesting article in that Malm never mentions his ex-girlfriend Michele DeFrasia. She gave him the job managing The Phantasy Theatre and that put him in the position to make all those connections in the industry. Also, John calls the LP version with Lash, Zima and DeVito a "great band". Too bad he was too young to see the original Lucky Pierre with Myself, Guciardo and DeVito playing bass instead of fumbling around on guitar. He'd really be impressed. Maybe you guys can send him a few mp3's of the band. But anyway, an interesting read nonetheless............
