Erk FM 174 – Centred Self interview

by Erk

Welcome to episode 174 of Erk FM, Erk’s music podcast featuring a wide range of podsafe & independent music from across the world.


This episode is an interview with Symon (guitar) and Allan (drums) from western Sydney progressive metal band Centred Self. Music supplied directly by the band. During the interview, we find out how Centred Self got its name, how the band got together, recording and rehearsing, drumming, the live music scene in Sydney & a lot more. On the day of this interview, Symon & Allan were pre-producing drum tracks at Party Pig Studios in the early stages of producing the forthcoming Centred Self debut album (planned for late 2010).


Keep listening at the end of the interview for Erk’s very first attempt at playing drums as well as some entertaining out-takes & bloopers!


Song list:

  • Neverland
  • Waveform
  • Measure of Madness

    Love the Interviews, Erk. Including this one. And maybe you should pursue drums instead of guitar. You’ll definitely have more chances for gigs that way, that’s for sure.
