'Kerrang' magazine Blink182 article analysis.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

February 2004 Rough copy ~ Penny Eiberg 'Kerrang' magazine Blink182 article analysis. * Blink182 - when they were younger * This Blink182 interview was published in alternative music magazine 'Kerrang' - issue 979 in November last year and was written by Tom Bryant. It's purposes are mainly to discuss their past, their success and above all their new album ! They tell us how it was almost never made as two years ago they were ready to split. This article is informative and at times quite humorous, 'There are many ways you'd imagine how a conversation with Tom DeLonge might start. Most of them involve a certain level of immaturity, a teenage crack about blow jobs, poop or possibly your mother. A reasoned debate on Californian politics is roughly last on the list '. But it also feels sad as the band recall feeling as though they were drifting apart. I think fans of the band would find this piece interesting. ...read more.

Middle

Inbetween the spoken text are narrative like passages from the writter 'Relaxing in a pancake house a mile from the coast north...'. At times he tells us what the band are doing (their actions) during the interview 'Tom DeLonge eases himself into a chair', or he will tell us stories of their past 'It's been two years since the four million selling "Take Off Your Pants And Jacket"', he also makes sure his own opinions are heard, 'Make no mistake about it - this is a much more mature album'. All this combined makes for great reading, the different types of writing hold your interest right to the end. Because of the nature of this article and where it has been published there is bound to be technical jargon and some slang words included in it, as it deals with a very percific topic and audience. There are words such as 'stiffs' meaning fails, used when talking about when Box Car Racer's only album was released,'candily','eponymous'and terms like 'dissmissive disdain' used when they mention hotel staff. ...read more.

Conclusion

In the text is a section of large bold speech from Mark "At the end of 2001 it felt like Blink182 had broken up. It wasn't spoken about, but it felt over." This is the first thing i read and it makes me wonder why he would say such a thing and want to find out. The caption on the following picture reads, "dude, did you just fart?" "Shut up Tom, we're artists now, remember?" Its just a bit of fun. Blink182 are known for playing pranks and being rude and still are, just not so much. They have finally grown up, a little. Over onto the final page is another picture of the guys and half a page of text. The caption says 'No more fools: californian punk's clown princes get serious: (from left)...' In the picture the guys look exactly that, serious and older. Something that stands out is another quote from Mark "When Tom and Travis started Box Car Racer i felt like the odd man out. It sucked. It really sucked". Also right at the end, in bold theres information on the new album, giving the title, release date and record label. ...read more.
