We have a really strange phenomenon I’m posting to address. For no discernible reason, Week 2 of our career length interview with a recent musical guest has literally quadrupled the listenership of Week 1 (the longer and more substantive one, packed with twice as many songs!). As such, I’m reposting both links as a unit, so fans can check out the entire interview, rather than just tuning in for the wrap up…
Yes, we’re talking about Week 44 and 45 of Third Eye Cinema, where we spoke with singer, songwriter, producer and glam metal legend Davy Vain!
With his moody and introspective take on melodic, Hollywood style metal, Davy has marked a trail all his own, creating an expressive, emotional and often angst ridden sound unafraid to explore the vagaries of life, love, and sex on the seedier side of the street.
While mainstream audiences know him best for his flawless Island Records debut No Respect, Davy and his band Vain have been putting out a steady flow of consistently solid releases that stay close to the original template while still adapting to the changing times!
In the first week, we tackle his career, the development of his sound and style, the Island affair, Steve Adler and Road Crew, and the “wilderness years”, with then-Japanese only releases. In the second week we hone in on his latest album Enough Rope, a surprisingly hard driving slab of metal that sounds more like his classic No Respect and All Those Strangers albums than anything he’s recorded since!
With the entire original lineup back in tow, Davy continues to mine the existential depths and tap into raw nerves, with the same hard rocking sound as the band was known for delivering nearly 25 years ago!
Join us as we speak to the one and only Davy Vain, only here on Third Eye Cinema!
