Antiquiet is streamlining the way we bring music, news and passion to you.
While the meat of our purpose with AQ is to discuss, promote and share our love of all things music, reality has gone straight-up bonkers on all fronts lately – and the lines have blurred on entertainment and awareness.
Trust in the written word is at an all-time low. So in addition to daily music news roundups, we’re pressing record and bringing you into our world much more directly. We’re going to share what makes us fans of music, what’s getting under our skin, and puts the lava in our veins each day on the Antiquiet Podcast.
But before we get to all that, we decided it was best to cover a little backstory first. In the second episode, Skwerl and Johnny – the original core of Antiquiet – go back to the beginnings of AQ, seven years before it actually came alive, with a chance trip to the West Coast and Johnny’s first-ever interview, with A Perfect Circle.
As with most new adventures, we’re working out the kinks and hijinks – bear with us. If you dig it, follow along. If not, let us know why. We’re intentionally shooting from the hip on this one, as a means of covering where we’ve been before leaping into where we’re going. But as listeners have already seen, the screws are turning. This thing is coming alive.
In the first episode, Johnny flew solo with a declaration of intent and a personal music story to get the fire started. In the second, we cover AQ’s origin story, and in the third episode, we cover the growing problem with music festivals, the way drugs dictate festival culture and recount a nightmare experience with the latest Taco Bell edible horror novelty. The fourth? Great albums with terrible production.
We’re on to something here, and we’re excited for what tomorrow holds. We’ll get this up on iTunes sooner than later, and there’s plenty of stories, guests, interview clips and passionate debates in store for the very near future. See you next week, ya filthy animals.
