Ok, ok, we’ll admit it. We love SPOD. To start, it was his live stage show that tickled our fancy. They're so darn entertaining (we fell in love with him in the Boiler Room at Big Day Out, Sydney circa 2002 and have maintained that burning... affection, ever since) Then there was Fantasyze. Kluster staffer Kristen Dagg caught up with SPOD over a beer or two to chat. Happy day. While we were at it we also arranged for our good friend Dan Boud to take some photos of SPOD. In a pool... yeah!
Covered: Fantasyzing, getting fit in flowing robes, loving local music, loving to hate 16yr old screamo.
Kristen Dagg: What’s SPOD been up to?
SPOD: The second record came out last year and that took up my whole life for a while, so since then I have been doing lots of remixing for people. I have started working on the third album and started this Fantasyze thing to fill the gap between - also to get fit leading into my next record.
KD: So what the hell is Fantasyze?
SPOD: Part of it was just to release a bunch of music I had been working on with friends. It’s been in the back of my mind for ages. And then I was about to start on this workout program my friend told me about, this jogging thing for unfit losers. She told me that it was really good but the downloads were terrible, so she makes her own, and I thought yeah alright, I’ll make my own tapes too. I started doing it and I thought, man I should release this. Most people might sit around smoking bongs to it, whatever I don’t mind, but it’s pretty cool that you can release stuff you have been working on and there’s a chance people might actually use it to get fit.
