A few words about Jim Strange
“A nihilist descendant of Johnny Cash and Nick Cave Portland, Or resident Jim Strange is not afraid to write about the darker side of life. After years of playing in metal bands that went nowhere 2008 Jim decided to take the bull by the horns and start his own project. His new band The Proud and the Damned would be based around American Roots music but with the bombast of heavy metal and gloomy atmosphere and low vocals of gothic rock. Guitarist Kyle Faircloth joined soon after and brought a flashy lead guitar element to the sound.” New album by Jim Strange With The Proud And The Damned, “I Will Build My Future On Your Bones” is under way –check http://jimstrange.com/
1. What do you see in your dreams?

Running down the clock till death and amusing yourself in a way that hopefully doesn’t harm the people you care about.
3. When alone, do you talk to yourself? If so, what do you talk about?

For me it’s the only activity that relieves the anhedonia of day to day life and is therefore the only thing worth doing.
