The Walkmen Interview
by Alexander Laurence
Walter Martin: Keyboards
Paul Maroon: Guitar and Keyboards
Matt Barick: Drums
Peter Bauer: Bass
The Walkmen's music is direct and forceful. There is a matter of fact quality to their songs. Here we are, entertain us. They combine dark noise and simple tunes to create something original and with depth. I spoke to guitarist Paul and drummer Matt before a few shows in LA with Hot Hot Heat and other bands. We spoke in the lobby of The Troubadour before two sold out shows. The Walkmen are a band from Washington, DC. They mostly live in New York City today.
