Ben Andrews is a Melbourne-based musician who is best known as the guitarist of the band My Disco. He has also played guitar in the grindcore band Agents of Abhorrence, and as a solo artist under the name ASSAD. I've been a big fan of My Disco for many years now, so I was really happy to have the opportunity to talk to Ben. We talked a lot about My Disco and the evolution they've undergone over the past 20 years or so. Ben also lived in Jakarta for a while, so we talked about that too. This conversation was recorded at a bar near where Ben lives in Melbourne, so you'll be able to hear a little bit of background noise.
My Disco's latest album, Environment, was released earlier this year on Downwards Records.
Tracks played: "Rival Colour" by My Disco, "Hong Kong, 1987" by My Disco
