Giant Drag

Published February 25, 2010 by Graham

Giant Drag’s distortion-heavy, sharply seductive first album, Hearts and Unicorns felt like a breath of fresh air when it was released in 2005. Sadly, a series of unfortunate events involving fickle labels and wayward drummers have kept the duo from following up their audacious debut, until now. Their long-awaited Swan Song EP is hot off the presses, and the LA Times has a great interview with the woman behind Giant Drag, Annie Hardy, in which she talks about the tragic pitfalls of covering Chris Issak and the joys of selling your hair on eBay.

Fun fact: Giant Drag’s “Stuff to Live For” video (above) was helmed by G.J. Echternkamp, director of a shockingly candid documentary about his own parents’ fractured, acrimonious, and insanely entertaining relationship, Frank & Cindy. Check it out if you get a chance.

Fun fact 2: You can catch Annie Hardy (in robot form at least) in Spike’s most recent work, I’m Here.

    hey, this is probably something you guys are all over, but there’s a touring gallery of mike o’meally photos from the set of WTWTA in australia right now. it coincides with the girl team’s tour, so there’s a very spike-related buzz around melbourne at the moment. is he here? no-one seems to know. the man is an enigma with an army of well-dressed doppelgangrs.
