Shane Pinnegar of 100 Percent Rock has interviewed Dom Mariani of Datura4.
Here is an excerpt:
It’s taken a few years to get off the ground around other bands, jobs and life in general, but finally Demon Blues, the debut record from Dom Mariani & Greg Hitchcock’s Datura4 has been released. SHANE PINNEGAR spoke with Mariani ahead of their album launch at Mojos, Saturday 29 August.
Dom Mariani has become something of a local legend with a career spanning over three decades, from the jangly powerpop of The Stems, surf instrumentals with the Majestic Kelp, soul rock alongside Nick Shepherd with The Domnicks, and The Someloves, The GoStarts, The DM3 and more besides. Datura4 is a different beast altogether: an eight-legged riff-heavy monolithic wall of sound that prides itself on musical exploration in worship of the gods of rock. It’s also far heavier than people are used to hearing from the local powerpop king.
