Interpol - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

We kicked off 2019 and our first What's In My Bag? episode of Season 12 with New York indie legends Interpol! The trio went shopping at Amoeba Hollywood recently and chatted with us about some of their favorite records and movies, including Peter Weir's Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Apparently the 19th century naval adventure/drama made such an impression on lead vocalist Paul Banks that he maybe, possibly got a tattoo inspired by the film. All three members had a lot of heartfelt and entertaining things to say about their eclectic picks, which ranged from Bad Brains to Roy Orbison and from Aphex Twin to Jesu.

The quintessential NYC indie band, Interpol consists of vocalist/guitarist Banks, guitarist/backing vocalist Daniel Kessler, and drummer Sam Fogarino. Initially formed in 1997, the group self-released Interpol - Marauder - Amoeba Musica series of EPs, and after a brief UK tour in 2001, performed on John Peel's BBC Radio program. Around this time, the band signed to Matador, who released their self-titled EP prior to the release of the critically-acclaimed, career-making 2002 full-length Turn on the Bright Lights. Interpol's sophomore LP, Antics, was released in 2004, reaching gold status on both the US and UK charts and earning them slots performing with the likes of U2 and The Cure. By 2007, the band had signed to major label Columbia for the release of their third LP, Our Love to Admire.

Duff Goldman

Jeffrey Adam "Duff" Goldman is the executive chef of Charm City Cakes, a Baltimore-based shop with an outpost on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. The Food Network reality show Ace of Cakes focused on the staff and daily operations of the East Coast shop. Goldman and his work have also appeared on Iron Chef America, Food Network ChallengeMan Vs. FoodOprah, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Goldman's new cake competition show, Duff Till Dawn, premieres January 29, 2015 on Food Network.

Duff sat down with us - literally, on the floor of the electronic music section at Amoeba Hollywood - to talk about some of his favorite music and movies. He kicks off this episode of "What's In My Bag?" with an all-time Hip Hop classic, Eric B. & Rakim's Paid In Full. Next Duff picks up Barakaa documentary film with no narrative or voice-over, but which includes a powerful piece of music featuring "bagpipes on top of Tibetan chanting, on top of Tibetan cymbals." A longtime fan of punk rock, Duff picks up the seminal self-titled debut by Minor Threat, a definite must have for any hardcore enthusiast. Duff also chooses the '90s comedy My Blue Heaven and explains how you simply do not throw Martin Sheen off a building.
