Make Up's Svenonius Is David Candy

Punk Planet book features Q&As with punk legends

Yes, that is Ian Svenonius, mastermind behind the awesome rock + soul + punk combo the Make Up (and before that, Nation of Ulysses), using the pseudonym "David Candy" on his upcoming side project, Playpower. The seven-song CD, due June 12 on Jetset, was produced by Jeremy Butler (Death by Chocolate) somewhere in England. Jetset says the David Candy sound is "early-Stonesish pop." The songs: "Play Power — David Candy Theme," "Incomprehensibly Yours," "Listen to the Music," "Redfuchsiatamborine&gravel," "Bad Bad Boy," "Diary of a Genius" and "Lullaby from Rosemary's Baby." ... The first collection of interviews from Punk Planet has been published by Akashic Books. We Owe You Nothing contains Q&As with Kathleen Hanna, Thurston Moore, Frank Kozik, Ian MacKaye, Jello Biafra, Black Flag, Steve Albini, Sleater-Kinney, Negativland and others.
