What kind of set, musically-speaking, can people expect from you?
Expect a molasses-smooth melange of many a music - spiky, serene, and everything in between. The
soundtrack to the fall of the current Roman empire.
How did you come up with the “Isnod” moniker?
Isnod used to be two people, Mark C and myself. I wanted to call us Nod, and Mark wanted to
call us Is Don, as in the Aussie deli meat advertising slogan. So it follows that while "is Don is good",
Isnod is god. So - it was settled.
Any hot tips for DJs?
Harden the fuck up and grow a mustache.
How did you get involved with the IF? label?
I used to go to the IF? events, and so got to know the crew.
Then I started doing design for the label. It was on one of these occasions that the esteemed
IF? label head came around to look at a cover I was doing, and I was listening to what my cohort and I had put live
to tape the night before. He asked what the hell I was listening to, and then - after a five minute pause - asked
if we could do it live.
The next day he called to tell us we had been booked for the Espy [Hotel in St Kilda, Melbourne]. As
I had never even thought about doing it for an audience, I thought he was joking. When I realised he was serious,
I shit myself.
What does IF? mean to you?
IF? brought innovative music out of the alleyways and put it in front of an audience. Some really
incredible music. And remember - this was at a time when I would set up, and people would ask me where the
drum kit was.
For me personally, without IF? I would have stayed in the bedroom, and never would have started playing
live. I never even saw myself as a musician, yet alone imagined I would still be making music with 3 albums
out (and a 4th coming), seven years later!
