It was a pleasure to record an interview with post-rock/ ambient artist Tom Honey, otherwise known as Good Weather For An Airstrike.
You can hear the full episode here:
Tom originally conceived the idea in 2009 to help him alleviate his issues caused by suffering from tinnitus. I spoke with him about my issues with this too and how he learned to create the music, along with the wonderful song and album titles.
He also helped me with discovering other artists and bands in the genre, such as bands he recommended like Caspian and his brother’s band Oceanus. We even spoke about other genres and how they may crossover into post-rock, such as what I’ve been discovering on the doom/ stoner front.
Tom also revealed that the name he chose- Good Weather For An Airstrike came from a rough translation of a Sigur Ros song.
I asked about any thoughts he has about playing live and Tom explained his thoughts on how he will do it, his experiences in the past and ideas for venues and how a show would look and feel.
