We're approaching the apocalypse? No, we're already in the middle of it. This is the credo of the Canadian band Godspeed You! Black Emperor, who herald doom with their eighth album "G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END!". With their own statements to the press, Godspeed You! Black Emperor have always been very reserved. But Ian Ilavsky, co-founder of the Constellation label and close confidant of the band, gives us some insight into the background of an album that is a new beginning of sorts for GY!BE.
There is no going back: 32 years after the end of Led Zeppelin the last hopes for a comeback of the rock legend have been dashed. Page, Plant and Jones couldn't come up with a common denominator, they have an ambivalent relationship to their own past and have long since moved elsewhere mentally. So the release of their new live DVD "Celebration Day" is also a rare occasion for collective nostalgia and detailed conversations with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, which we reproduce here in full, which eclipsed of course does not miss.
