An Interview With Sly & The Family Drone

Source: The Quietus.

Despite there being much love for them in the underground, Sly & The Family Drone still seem a little overlooked. Okay, their jazz-tinged brand of abstract noise music isn’t everybody’s cup of intensity, yet where similar or even lesser-known bands have been meticulously documented, nobody’s even bothered to make them a Wikipedia page. Nor is there any ‘Biography’ entry for them on the AllMusic website, an otherwise “comprehensive” (or so it says) music resource. On Discogs, they’re summarised as a “Drum, tape and oscillator noise band from Basingstoke, UK”. Even that needs updating.
